Knowing when to change things up in your art business is not scientific. There are many variables involved in creating and selling a successful line of work. After making your art you must try to perfect your display, and then find the right venues to sell whether show locations or galleries. Sometimes changing one factor, such as a price increase, can drastically alter the results. I am not one to rush into change. I tend to give shows a second chance and allow galleries to run through their seasons before making big decisions. When the moment feels right, I know I’ve given the issue enough consideration and time that I don’t second guess my choice.
My felted cat sculptures are difficult and physically intensive to make. My hands are feeling the effects of aggressive production of these little critters. I will only be making special request cat sculptures from now on. This litter of cats was languishing in a gallery for too long so I decided to “rescue” them today. After a little rehab this week they will be available at my next show June 17-18 at Brookdale Park in Montclair NJ. When they are gone I will certainly miss their goofy presence in my booth!
