My outlook for 2021 is super good. 2020 was a rough year in some ways, but I also had a lot of time to think and experiment and figure out what I want to both do and give back. Here are a few main points that came up for me this year.
- I HATE PHOTOGRAPHY AND STINK AT IT
The fact is that I am terrible at photography, which is a bummer because that is what online selling requires UNLESS you use a work around – product mockups and stock photos. While I hate doing that, I feel like that might be the only option for myself at this point as you cant get followers with a stinky instagram feed.
- I AM NOT A LONG TERM COMMITMENT GIRL I love projects. I love having an idea, creating 10-20 pieces and moving on. I will never be the girl who focuses on one single medium and never does anything else. With that said, I will always love art, so that ties me into #3 of what I can offer, experience with all that I have done.
- WHAT CAN I OFFER THEN? I know that followers and buyers want to get to know me and my world, but without great photos it is hard to share anything very useful. What I can offer without needing great photos is my knowledge – not as much visually – but verbally. So I might start up a VLOG and chat about art related things this year. Not positive, but maybe by the end of the year. Until then I will use this BLOG to share information with you.
So this is what I am thinking. I will be writing this year about what I know and what I want and hopefully helping you with business and art related insight. It will likely be more writing than visual, but that is what I have for you.
Please let me know in the comments below if there is anything that you would like to know more about – art OR business related!
Cheers to 2021!
