On Articles and sealing wax...

Every so often... oh, alright... quite often... I step back and wonder, 'where do I get off writing articles on the business of art?'

What do I know about the business of art? What do I know about business OR art?

Honestly, not much.

But I know a little, and I like to share it. Someone told me my articles were great for beginners, and I was a little chagrinned at first, felt damned with faint praise. I think, however, that it's a compliment. I've found a niche to write to, because most everything out there is aimed at the semi-pro for going pro, not the base amateur who just wants to make a little cash on the side with their talent. I *know* about that. I can *write* about that.

/random article musing...

Got some art time yesterday, finished another colored paper piece for the Project and the submission for the Epilogue contest. Nervous as heck about submitting it, but will anyway. Also dredged through a 'retired' sketchbook and found more work for the Project. Maybe will be unveiling in two days?? *glee*

Want to aaaaart or EMG, not print stupid airport pdfs...
