  1. If you consider that a mess, you would faint in my studio. That, up there, is NOT a mess. Trust me.

  2. Ha ha ha! I should probably clarify. I set up there, in the family room, sometimes because the light is really good. But it’s in the middle of the house so I usually clean up. There is a different set of clean up rules for my studio in the basement! 🙂

  3. Hi, I sell on Etsy and at my own open studios. Also to some local stores. Most artists do not enjoy the marketing part, and finding out how to best market takes some research. Best wishes.

  4. Hi,
    I know this doesn’t answer your question, but I do have a string set of thoughts on this that I would like to share with you. Unless you have a pressing financial need to sell your work, I feel it is best to not consider selling your work. Instead focus on your art. Do you need to sell? If so ignore this. Otherwise, the need to make your work marketable will, if even subconsciously, cause you to change what you do, thus preventing you from freely developing naturally.

    • I appreciate your comment! I have been thinking the same thing. As I think about selling, I’ve been playing around with creating things that are more marketable. Just as you say, it’s affecting what I create. I really enjoy playing and creating whatever comes to me. I love how the final piece can be so unexpected (to me). If I continue in this way, I risk taking some of the joy out of creating. And the pieces I really love I wouldn’t consider selling! Thank you for writing what I was thinking.
