Taking advantage of what you have is the fix Maze a day 76

Maze a day 76

"If you don't ask for what you want how will you get what you want?" Unknown

As I mentioned last week I had someone hire me to do a commission piece for them.  The person made a great point that I just can’t get over.  They read my blog and wanted to know more about my failures specifically in art.

I explained my issues with shows and not making any money. They asked about this project and what was the purpose of the blog.  I explained that I was challenging myself as well as hoping to promote and sell my art.  Then they asked how does one make money without selling anything?  Which I had no answer for of course.

Anyway I’m 70+ days into the project and have yet to even offer my art for sale. Which makes me wonder and think back to some of my past let downs and if they were because of simple mistakes.  How many times did I “not offer to sell” and it cost me my goal?

Many times we think that we cannot do something we set out to do when in reality were probably not using all the available tools at our disposal.  I’m curious to find out what other simple things have held others back or I’m I the only simpleton??!!!

With that said I invite you to visit the buy prints button if you would like  prints of my work.
