I realized yesterday that I haven't been posting my daily paintings each day. Since the name of my blog is "Painting a Day" this might be a good way for me to keep track of my progress by using the collage which I learned in the marketing challenge. (Leslie Saeta even put the challenge in the form of a free e-book) on her blog.
( so far I have posted 191 paintings and am selling on a regular basis now- I am proud of this)
I encourage you to join Daily Paintworks. It provides a place to track your progress and is an incentive to paint every day. Before joining, I did paint every day, but without this kind of focus. It has energized me to paint even more and the discipline of doing a small painting every single day has helped me improve my skills. It has given me momentum to add marketing, create a website, and do more blogging. Don't forget, pinterest, although I spend more time than I should looking around at other boards, it is a good way of educating yourself and often to get inspired.
Carol Marine and her husband started this website (DPW) so artists would have a place to show and sell their work other than ebay. Thank you to them for providing this opportunity.
