Digesting and regurgitating

Sometimes, (no, I'll change that to most of the time!) being an artist isn't about being an artist. Its also about being an administrator, an advertising hording, a listener, a chaser of information, and being able to digest the information I glean from other places, sift through it, and put it into other more practical uses for me as an artist. So when others talk of artwork they've produced, I listen, and when they talk of the response it gets, I listen. When other artists talk of a painting they've created, I listen. When someone gives me a book to read about selling art I read it. When I ask for advice, from someone whose opinion I value, I listen. And when I've got as much information as I think I need, I'll act on it. When I think the time is right. It may not be now. It may be some time in the near, or far, future. But I will use it, somehow........................

And part of that information has been updating my website this week. Nine new images. One new gallery - for "Tarses" - I do LOVE that word!!!!! Even though there is only ONE tarse in that gallery, it is a start. The start of many tarses, I think! MANY!!!!!!! :)

So, if you want to take a look........you'll see....................... www.jackieadshead.co.uk

Yes I've had a look at your new layout of your website and I like it. You have some 'VERY' interesting pieces, but I wouldn't expect anything else from you Jackie, you come across as being a 'VERY' interesting woman, 'VERY' clever too!!

Working in a field where others are few and far between, at least others that are successful enough to make a living from it, means that you do need to stop and listen to those willing to offer any help and advice.

As for all the other parts your work entails, because of the very personal nature of artwork and especially if someone is arranging a commission then it does leave you becoming all things to all men, which certainly must keep you very busy!!!

The new images on your website are all great!

Fitzy - I'm always open to help and advice in areas that I think will help me improve my art.

I may be all things to all men, but that's because I do SO much. And I like being able to do a LOT and being busy, rather than keep my mind blinkered to just a few small ideas and areas.

Thankyou, I'm delighted you like the new images on my website!
