To Market, to market

It's one thing to create a watercolor painting and another to display and market the finished work.  An artist expresses their inner soul while creating a painting which is literally putting the self on display.  There is a raw vulnerability when choosing to enter the art for public viewing as well as exposing the piece to critique, however positive that may be.  When the watercolor is offered up for sale, it is giving up a part of the self.  The finished product no longer belongs to the artist.  It is a bit of a grief process letting go of the painting to be enjoyed by others.  Lately, many opportunities have been provided to market my artwork:  Campbell Library in East Grand Forks has several pieces in their "Autumn Colors" exhibit; the Grand Cities Art Catalogue through Veronica Maszk kicked off a promotion for local artists to offer their art for sale to local businesses; and the new Sanford Medical Center in Fargo has invited local artists to submit artwork for the new building.  Marketing the artwork completes a cycle of production.  When one piece sells, it makes room for another to take its place.  It is an inspiring decision to keep creating a part of the self; very life-giving.  Thank you to all of you who invest in my creations.  PS:  the fabulous Grand Forks Symphony led by the new conductor, Alejandro Drago, inspired my soul to soar through the music performance.  It will be a good year!
