It isn’t an instruction. It’s a question…
The hills of home
I’ve lived here for five years. Val Marie, Saskatchewan, gateway to Grasslands National Park, one of Canada’s most beautiful and remote regions. For most of that time I’ve operated Grasslands Gallery, with gorgeous and original art and craft by about 25 artists, inspired by the Grasslands experience. On Saturday this week, the gallery closes permanently. No one person can do everything and I’ve decided it’s time for me to focus on my own painting. The decision wasn’t arrived at lightly or quickly, but I know it’s the right one to make. The time and energy that went to promoting and selling the art of others will go into creating and marketing my own.
So what happens when you become a full time artist? An all-the-time, no-excuses artist? How do you really make it work?
Over the next weeks and months, I’ll find out. The intention, the commitment, the action, the money. Please join me. We’ll explore this together.
