Inspiration- where do you find it?

09 January 2012 - 08:53 PM

Hi all,
Usually my biggest problem in the studio is having my hands on too many projects at once and then juggling drying times etc. Over the Christmas break I normally dont go into the studio for 2 weeks while the busy season is around.
But this year I'm stuck. Stuck in 'unmotivated' mode and I cant seem to shift it. In the mix my health wasn't great, so maybe thats slowed me down.
When I'm in my usual routine......it goes like this
  • enjoy morning coffee while reading my own notes from yesterday
  • thorough clean up of space with quiet music
  • then a few hours of productive creativity
Since the break it all stops at step 1 !?

But i'm curious........ what do others do to get the creative juices flowing?
I'm interested in hearing your comments
cheers, Lyn

selling and marketing work & introduction

I have lurked on CAD for the past 3 years soaking up information and techniques from the daily tips and this forum- so firstly thank you :)

This forum has so many talented and experienced artists I would love to start a thread with ideas on how you got your work onto the 'selling' stage.
This year I graduate with a Bachelor Visual Art (ceramic major) with plans for an Honours year next year- I'm not a fresh faced young grad, actually 54 yo. I work from a great home based studio and hope when study is finished to get my work out there.
I am in Australia and up until now have participated in local (small country town) and university exhibitions with a couple of successful entries into large regional galleries.
This year I developed my website but as yet have not installed a selling option.
Has any one got stories, ideas or tips of how they got their work into a sales arena? -like galleries, shows, markets etc
kind regards, Lyn
