Artists Need a Left Brained Twin
After we got back from vacation on Sunday I was swamped with paperwork, emails, matting and shrink-wrapping orders for galleries, marketing, shipping Etsy orders, an inventory count, ordering supplies and all that other stuff that is not painting. I get so impatient when I get bogged down by these chores because I want to get back to the "creating" part of my job. I have always joked that all artists should be born with a left brained twin who just loved digging into all of this non-creative but very necessary stuff that comes with a career in art. Alas this is not the case with me so today I am packing up the print order I shrink-wrapped yesterday, paying bills, mounting the last 2 silk paintings I did and then photographing them so that I can make prints.
