Client Communication

"The Journey" - Belinda Lindhardt

I have just read a really good post about how you communicate through your art with your clients and just what it all means. Some of the points have come into realization for me recently particularly about the business side of art and forcing yourself to ask questions about why you do certain things.

If your in the artbusiness :) take a look

Gathering Strength WIP Update

Here is an update, i really feel like starting a painting but i am going to resist that urge and try to get this one a bit more finished before i move on. This isnt a very good photo of it but you get the idea of where its heading. The tooth of the paper isnt very good in places where i have had to try to erase bits of paper so i am struggling a bit in areas ... but getting there :)

Gathering Strength - WIP Take 2

"Gathering Strength" WIP, Coloured Pencil on Stonehenge byBelinda Lindhardt

This one is coming along SLOWLY, i have been busy moving, unpacking, organising, fixing computers, fixing electrical fuses, (add a list of numerous things connected with kids and sick kids here) during this time i have been stealing away a few moments here and there to work on this one. It's situated in my dining room area so it means i am constantly looking at it and working out what needs to be done for my next time of stealing away a few moments. Normally i wouldnt work this way at all but i am actually finding it working out really well. I am itching to do some painting and as i was sorting the other day i smelt my oil paints and longed to get them out .... but given the amount of stuff i have on at the moment i have just had to put it all aside and concentrate on this.

As i mentioned in a previous post my 2yo had a fun time with a orange pencil which i dont think you can see much of in this photo but is all over his face and my face which i am yet to do. My preliminary tests look like i can cover it up and I think i will be able to save it so i will continue on.

Anywhos apologies for the lack of posts, just need to get some catching up done and i will be back on track. i hope (fingers crossed)
