Back to the Drawing Board

Well I have to tell you girls and boys, things are really slow in the art world.  

I thought that if I made useable and  functional pieces of art, not just pretty things to look at, that something would sell.  Not so my friends.  I am getting tons of views but no sales.  Not even a nibble.  Combine that with the fact that I have been a weaving fanatic lately, I think I have burnt myself out on it nicely.

So I have decided to go back to drawing.  I have had this line drawing (i.e. design) ready to color in since I went to Jacksonville to visit Kraftymax a couple of months ago.  There is a picture of just the line drawing below.  Trying to decide whether to do it in color or just graphite.  All opinions are welcome by the way.

I still have the looms set up, but I am going to take a break and do something different.

I think this will also free my mind a little from some of the other pressures in life I am dealing with.  For those of you who know me I think you understand.  I may even spin a little yarn.....nothing more mind freeing or relaxing than spinning.  Unfortunately then I feel pressured to make something with the yarn.  But I digress. 

So here is a picture of the very start.

I completely understand switching artistic gears. It's good in the long run to revive creative processes. The line drawing is very compelling, and fluid :) I am drawn to color, but also know that it will be what it wants to be as you work on it. :)

Know what you mean. Nothing kills inspiration like lack of sales. A break might be just the thing. Go in a new direction for a little bit so you can come back remembering why you love it.

Lack of sales is pretty brutal, I know! So many different arts out there to mix things up with though, so that's good. It's far too easy to get burnt out on pressure or over-doing it on one type of art a tad too long. Eesh then throw in the personal brutalities and that's too much soup...
