2016 is here and apparently I'm not!!!! I have been working on my new pieces for this year and kinda got hemmed up with planning my launch and how to build an audience. This is all great and wonderful unless you are sliding on actually making pottery!!!! So today I will be shooting pics and getting them out there for all to see.......I hope there is an all out there some where!!!! If you love my work please tell your friends to like me on FB, it can be so lonely out here in the art world. facebook.pennypottery
Isn't that what you are suppose to ask Monday morning after the bowl game? I, myself have no clue. I mean I did go to a Super bowl party, truth be told I go to socialize and maybe to catch a few minutes here and there so people know I actually did see the game. But, I take this opportunity to see friends and get out of my pottery studio so people know I am still alive or maybe like the groundhog, see if I cast a shadow to determine whether Spring is on its way sooner than later.
I don't know about other artists but full contact sports really don't do it for me, BUT if two grown guys want to play in the mud (pottery mud) while I keep score, that's a whole nother game plan!!!!! (yes, nother is a real word)
So am off to make pottery and dream about hot, shirtless men playing in the mud. Wow, its great to be an artist!!!!!!
Motivation is something everyone talks about! If you are self employed, an artist or just getting to work every day requires motivation. I myself am a very motivated person, my problem is staying focused in one direction....kinda like this blog. I really intend to stay on track and put one entry per day or at least one per week BUT..... have you ever heard of Pinterest????? If not you are really living under a rock. Pinterest is the black hole of motivation and focus, dont get me wrong Pinterest is great for inspiration but it will suck you in and spit you out 4 or 5 hours later, seriously.
So my plan is to stay focused, save Pinterest for evening hours and of course stay motivated. To all of you Pinterest-o-holics out there.......just say NO! Smile-
