Since I decided to jump in feet first by starting my own business as am interior decorator, every productive and creative moment I have is spent on all the various must dos for this. Marketing is now taking up most of my time. I spent quite a bit of time over Christmas working furiously to get content onto my new blog. I'd forgotten how difficult it is to start out with a new blog and not have an audience that you can connect with. When I write for my art blog I have the blogging friends I've made over the last two years in mind as my audience. I know other people visit my art blog but they mass together as one for me. For decorating I seem to just write. Because I am using Designing Home blog to promote myself in my home town that's who I'm imagining as my readers. Most of my visitors so far seem to be coming from a local blog roll which tells me I have local people lurking. So where am I with art?
I went down to my studio the other day for paper and I had a fresh look at a painting I began last fall. It is part of my new Re-presenting Series. It isn't quite finished yet as I'm having trouble resolving the lower right corner and I can't seem to come up with a way to integrate the house a little more. Perhaps that is because it doesn't need to be integrated (as my wise friend said). Feel free to respond to it. It might get me back in the groove.
