Incase you’re wondering why I’ve been quiet in blog land this last week (and maybe the thought hadn’t even crossed your mind, and you haven’t missed me in the slightest!), I’ve been very busy and involved with many other things, a lot of them relating to art and my future in art……..
Oh, and I’ve got some MEGA news…………………!!!!!
I wrote a few weeks ago about the businessman who offered to go into partnership with me for a large share of my profits. His offer came totally out of the blue and really made me consider my position and future and the way I want to focus on my art. I knew very quickly after hearing his offer that I wasn’t going to go into partnership with him. Or give him half of my hard earned money. But what his offer made me realise, was that I’m a viable proposition, someone who is worth investing a lot of money in, someone who can turn a profit. And I listened to his advice – that I needed a gallery in a big city to showcase my work, for the people who like the sort of thing I do, to come and see my work, and hopefully like it enough to buy it. This made me think deeply. And consider my options, and the costs of finding such a place to showcase my work. My concern was that large amounts of money would be involved, as it would be a massive investment. And the worry is whether the large overheads would reap the sort of return I was looking for??? Mmmmmmmm. Big thoughts………
So, after a shortish time, it came to me what I needed to do, and also how I should do it. I should look for a group of artists who do what I do, erotic art, and have their own established gallery with a strong client base, their own website, who promote themselves well and have a good following and are respected in the world of erotica. So, the very OBVIOUS place to start looking was……. the Guild of Erotic Artists. So, I looked into it and I applied………….
And last week I had a reply.
I’ve been accepted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, I’m now a member of the Guild of Erotic Artists! How wonderful is that??!! It means more people will see my art, better promotion of my work, that I will be able to work with other erotic artists, have a higher profile and that others will value my artwork more in future.
And today my details have been added to their list of artists…… here they are if you wanna take a peek…………….
And let me know what you think. Is this a good thing for me…….. or……. should I just go back to doing the dog portraits!!!!!!!!!?????
