The fear of failure...

As my dear friend Marion said to me today "Nothing like the fear of failure to help you get your butt in gear" which in thinking about her comment is so very true.

Next month we are off to the country to have a weekend with the in-laws. They live in horse and wine country. The MIL has been talking about some new markets they have up there for a a while now and has booked us in for a stall... while she is selling cakes and biscuits i will be selling/displaying art and my mirrors. So now i have a deadline for something it actually feels like i am working in overtime to get some things done to show. I am also not milling around on what i am working on and just getting on with it!!!

Judging from reading other artist's experiences from art fairs to be honest i am not expecting to sell a whole lot at the market itself. But the town is horse town i think one of the most well known in Australia and i think i would do well for the exposure of having a few pieces there for some possible commissions or just to even get feedback on artwork to see what people like and dislike. I am toying with the idea of getting some prints done but i am not sure on that one just yet.

So the past few days my but has been in gear thinking about and planning all that ... i have started a new piece which i hopefully will show you tomorrow which i am quite happy with so far using Neocolours II and coloured pencils. I am really enjoying actually doing a finished piece as its been a while if it all goes to plan.

Anywho, not really fantastic news but i am excited about so i thought i would let you all in on my thoughts.

It IS fantastic news! How exciting. I'm sure you'll do great at the art fair. You'll have to keep us updated.

We're all rooting for you! And you just never know...I have it on good authority that prints sell well at art fairs - you might really consider having some on hand.
