All Dressed Up and So Many Places to Go!

"All Dressed Up" - oil painting on unstretched canvas - 7" x 6" - SOLD
2015 has started off in a flurry of activity for this creative entrepreneur.  I began the year with a commitment to create 30 new paintings in 30 days while working behind the artistic scenes to turn over my small property management business to a new company.  Despite being an easy transition, there are so many details that go into turning over a business and right now I'm exhausted but excited about the many opportunities coming my way.

Early last year I decided it was time to change the branding for my art business and basically redirected my artistic goals. I closed my studio that was open to the public and focused on painting and doing some commission work. After a lot of soul searching, meditation and just quiet time with my Self, I decided it was time to refocus my marketing efforts and that 2015 would be my year to get back to doing on-line sales and promoting my work commercially.  Because I like to paint in series and do large works, a lot of my art is ideally suited for big walls (think lobby art) and with my real estate development background, I know how to work with the designers and art consultants.

I'm excited to get my new websites completed and have fixed up my home studio (aka garage) for my glass and clay art.  My former home office/spare bedroom will be turned into a painting studio/marketing arena and I can't wait to start offering classes to the public!

The website Creative Soul Revival will be for promoting my classes and I'll be sharing the ups and downs, the ins and outs and the good, bad and the ugly of the new art adventures right here on my blog.  Stay tuned - I have a feeling 2015 is going to be a fun filled and rocking good year!!
