My last post was an announcement for a sale happening on Society6. I have to be honest that while I find creating products from my art enjoyable, I was unprepared for the inevitable next step...promotion.
Self-promotion is very much not me. I am shy, and I become almost apologetic. All this being said, however, I have always intended to share my writing and photography, and dream that the work will be published, purchased, or exhibited.
My intent with Society6 is to make a little money to support bringing The Spaciousness Project into physical form when it is time. At present, it is still a project in progress, and I am creating new work for it regularly. Printing and framing photographs is expensive. I would like to have some room to experiment, to try different labs and papers to see what helps the work shine.
I need to find my peace with the marketing aspect of being an artist. As I become more experienced, perhaps I can find a way to make it fun, creative, even whimsical.
If you are a creative, I'd love to know how you approach this subject. I welcome your suggestions and thoughts.
And of course, here's how you can find your way to my shop: https://society6.com/claricelbdc
