The Setup: a post for artrepreneurs about displays

I've started this post 3 times now. I'll finish it this time, I promise. Today, I want to talk to you about setups. This post is meant for artrepreneurs and those who love us. Those people who volunteer their time to help us with an event. We love you, we honor you, we value you, we'll talk about y'all in another post. What we're talking about today is event setup.

the 3 women

the 3 women


Sometimes when I create something, I'm pulling from a download from Spirit. Such was the case with this painting.

And normally, I would have published a New Year's Manifesto of my own, with ruminations about the departing year and predictions and hopes for the coming one. This year, things are a little different. Though I have my regular blog, I'm writing this post on the website for my art business, which is, and in most ways always was, more than a monetized hobby.
