Have spent the last couple of days readying images for festival applications this year. This is my third year. First year I attended 2 shows, next year - 3 shows, this year I am going for 4 shows, PLUS 2 gallery shows AND the Sunday Market in Astoria! Maybe I will actually make some money. What a concept.
I could not do this without Jacki's help. She does all the computer and paperwork, keeps me on schedule and gathers information. I don't know how "artists without partners" do it. (This sounds like a self-help group.) Its hard enough to work at growing as an artist and completing the work, let alone, marketing yourself.
I am looking forward to traveling around the NW, being a tourist and meeting new people.
