This year it seemed the Artwalk was a bust for me. It was cold, it rained harder than usual, the wind blew, and did I mention it was Cold?! And, ... I sold nothing. However! I made a new friend/acquaintance, Faie, and I got (maybe) some exposure.
Traditionally, the first weekend in March is lovely, so Boooo to the people who put the walk down because of timing. There are at least 9 out of 11 weekends that I can say were warm, rather dry, and just spring like. So the timing was still good. I think that what made this a bust for me was my location. Granted, I was grateful for being hosted by a wonderful business, the owner was so sweet and kind. But, the location and the area that I displayed in was all wrong. I was in a garage/wine cask storeroom, it was not much warmer inside there than it was outside. I was not that visible. No one really hung around to play with my dolls. As a matter a fact I had just as many business cards in the end as I did in the beginning.
So I think, I need to do some soul searching as to what I want to do with my art. Do more fairs during the summer? Become more aggressive about putting it in more shops? Start to do art doll challenges and get myself published? (That could be fun)
So as I sit and watch the sunrise above the trees, listen to the birds sing their morning chorus, I will ponder my Art career, my passion. I will become a bit more determined and stronger to make it shine.
