The business side of your art…

Happy Sunday! Artists commonly say, making art is good, but promoting it is not. The business of art can feel like a separate burden from art-making. How can you get your work seen in a way that energizes you like art-making?Here’s one way I discovered purely by accident.

Check it out!

Painting in front of people was a surprisingly fun and easy way to promote my work. I was already doing what I love, so the transition to sharing my joy with onlookers was seamless. The answer to aligning your art-making with your art business is YOU. Share your work in a creative way that makes you feel alive! Be energized, get noticed.

What ideas do you have about aligning self-promotion with your art? Let me know in the comments.

This week on the Art2Life Podcast, I’m expanding on this idea of self-promotion and aligning it with who you are. I’ll talk about how to think about galleries and social media. I’ll share thoughts on how to bring alignment and energy to your art and promotions. Join me this Wednesday for our next episode. Listen in from wherever you stream podcasts or watch the whole episode on our YouTube Channel!

Have an awesome Sunday!
