As a result of this - In April, I decided I must "pound" the streets of the city and promote my art. In many of my classes, we discussed saying "I am an artist" and how difficult that is - even for professional and long time artists. People always say "And what is your other job ?" I was convinced I must do this ! I then wrote up an introduction letter and attached my business card and approached numerous businesses, restaurants, lounges, etc. At each business, I said "I am an artist and approaching businesses to display my work". YES, I said "I am an Artist." I was very enthused from the response of most businesses. I now have 3 proposed sites to display my work and hope to continue for the long term. I am very interested and willing to work with businesses and my art in helping to raise funds for fundraisers of worthy causes, etc. I have a number of other businesses that were receptive to displaying my work but are "filled" at this time so we will meet again at a later date.
Follow me as I go forward on this journey !
