Advice Needed

Alright folks, I was wondering if you would be a darling and help me out with a bit of advice please? Next weekend I will be doing my first ever craft stall. Im nervous about this. What if nothing sells and it all goes to pot! We’re going to do a trial run of our stall layout this weekend but I was hoping for a bit of advice from those of you who have done something similar before and also from those who haven’t, what is it you look for when you go to these things? absolutely any advice is appreciated so of you could please spare the time I would be really grateful. Thanks ever so much.

Going to work on some more one off pieces like the artist book that I did a post on before. Please let me know if this is something you would be interested in, I would be very grateful for any feedback.

Taking A Line For A Walk















Do you remember those drawing exercises they would make you do on the Foundation course? One of them was learning to draw without taking your pen/pencil off the paper. There should be no isolated aspect to the drawing. I’ve got my niece staying with me and last christmas I bought her Art in a box from the TATE which was full of different projects for her to do. One of them was the taking a line for a walk drawing exercise. We haven’t embarked on that project yet but I decided to go ahead and do it while she was busy painting. Totally forgot how much fun it is and I actually really like the final outcome. I don’t know about anyone else but I have bouts of just not being able to get out of my own head, its crazy. Im just stuck on work which you have to be able to sell and constantly thinking about the consumer. Now I know that when you start out as an artist these are jobs you have to do but not when it affects your imagination. Thats why I enjoy the time my niece spends with me so much, I forget about creating work for my shop and more about just creating.

Take care,
