Some of you know that I took off the month of Oct. to get things done around the house. Well, I didn't get everything done that I had planned but I managed a few. I volunteer at the Chamber on Wednesdays and other artists join me there. We have had five artists coming on a regular bases. Today it was just Hilda and I like old times. We didn't get much work done, we talked the entire time and then had lunch, good times. After lunch I went to the studio to try to clean up the studio. I had to unpack all that artwork I picked up last Friday. Then to rehang the paintings and drawings. I have officially ran out of wall space. Now, what do I do with these extra paintings? They are leaning again the wall.
I would like to share how I keep track of where my paintings are at a visual glance. The Title blocks I use for shows are printed on clear address labels and adhered to white foam core. I have two printed, one with a price and one without. One goes with the painting and the other goes on my cabinets in the work area. The show or gallery has a post it note at the top of the door. I just place the extra Title Block under the correct show. So I know where every painting is at any given time.This works very well for me. I've have a hard time keeping up with them in the computer. I hope this might be of help to some of you.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
