Summers can be quite intense out here in the desert. The intensity of the sun makes it difficult to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors, so I find myself waking up earlier trying to enjoy the wee hours of the morning with a run/walk (ralk). The rest of the day I’ve been busy in my cool studio making rabbit paintings and studying for my class. Class you say? Yes, I am almost done with the summer class I am taking from the local community college. Business 101. The basics. I figured I have been in business for a few years at this point and could use some legitimate information to help take it to the next level. It’s really been a great class, motivating me to understand what it is I want to do with my business. I highly recommend some basic business classes to those of you who are selling your art on the side or even full time, and want to step it up a bit. It has made me excited for the possibilities.
I finished another shadowbox for a group show in Anaheim. Artist Republic Gallery in opening a new show tomorrow evening that runs through August 20th. The gallery moved a couple of months ago to their current location and they are enjoying their spaciously, beautifully modern new space.. Go see the show!
