The Alcove Art Shop is having its Winter Delights exhibition in a couple of weeks.
I find that I like to play around with ideas and rarely make things that I want to sell. They are either not suitable for a shop, not well enough made or, if they are, I don't want to part with them! So I will have to play around a bit more and see if I can come up with something that I think is good enough to sell and that someone might actually want to buy.
Maybe I need to stop trying all different techniques and actually concentrate on one. Then I would get more skilled at it AND I might make enough to sell. But where would be the fun in that?
Most of the artists who put work in have other outlets and are professional or semi-professional artists. It is just so hard to make a living as an artist, especially in the art/craft area, that they often have other jobs as well. But the standard of work is high.
