Weekly Summary - April 16 2021

Well this week has been a lot! I have not been productive in the studio as I was dealing with terrible insomnia and some days I felt barely able to function. So this week I have to count simply surviving as an accomplishment! (Last week's accomplishments & carefully made plans here.) I write these first thing Friday morning, and I'm usually worn out from the week. My brain struggles to remember exactly what I did all week. Yesterday I got smart though & took a few notes to help kick start this post today. So while I did not paint...

Spring 2021 Collection

The Late Blooming Watercolors Spring 2021 Collection is themed around spring, new growth, budding trees, and the color green. You'll love these pieces of custom art for your home decor, office wall decor, or home office decor if your walls are ready for a jolt of spring energy. These paintings range in size, from a small 5x7" painting that would be great in a small space or part of a group of artwork, to the largest piece which measures 14x10" and makes a bold statement.Each painting is also conveniently mounted on cradled board so they're ready to hang, no additional frame needed!

Weekly Summary - April 9 2021

We're back for our continuing weekly adventures in art and business progress! (Last week here.) This past week was not art-ful. I was feeling unmotivated and out of creativity due to spending so much of last month on social media, and not seeing huge results. I've been meeting with a free Score mentor for the last few months and we came up with a (seemingly) great idea last time: a marketing calendar to prevent being surprised by holidays & events I could base my posts around. I wrote out what days I would post and what topics in a monthly spreadsheet, and then...

Weekly Summary - April 2 2021

This week I was very busy with all 3 of my jobs so I didn't spend as much time painting, and did not accomplish my goals from last week. But I'm ok with that! I was still quite productive on the business side of my art biz.  I skipped one day of daily painting and spent it on working on my marketing content instead. I try to write and schedule my social media content at least a week ahead of time so I can do it in batches. I use a tool called Hootsuite for this...but yesterday I woke up to...

Weekly Summary - March 26 2021

This past week was busy and productive. I painted, prepped art for a new collection release, and had some big news. I'm continuing a pretty good streak from last week. I continued my daily painting with mixed results. Sometimes the dot cards fail me when there isn't enough paint for me to complete the painting I planned. I was pleased with myself for pushing through one day. My initial painting didn't look as good as what I originally envisioned, and for once I pushed myself to keep going instead of abandoning it for something else. It was a very uninspired landscape...
