A step towards a New Year's resolution

This year I decided (in my mind) that I am going to do more workshops, either hands-on painting workshops or art business workshops. So, this Saturday I will take my first step in doing that.

I will be attending a "no excuses art marketing workshop" with Alyson B. Stanfield in Lake Forest Illinois (about 2 1/2 hours from me). This is put on through the Deerpath Art League in Lake Forest. The workshop is called, "I'd Rather to be in the Studio, But I have to Eat!"

Alyson Stanfield has a blog called ArtBizBlog.com. I read her stuff everyday. In fact, to keep up with my favorite artists and gallery owners, (and I use Firefox as my browser), I made a bookmark folder with all these blogs and then when I click on the "artist blogs" bookmark folder, at the bottom of the drop-down list is a command, "open all in tabs." Love that. I sometimes can click through 15 blogs in 5 minutes or 3 hours, depending on how many of them made recent posters to their blogs. It's great.
