Things have been pretty crazy around here for the past couple of weeks. It’s a long story, but a good one. Though I’ll spare you the details right now, trust me when I say my life has been upside down for the past several days.
So I was pretty proud of myself that I had managed to keep up with my face paintings in the midst of all this chaos. Yay me! I still painted everyday, and sent them out to my newsletter every weekday morning just as planned.
I had noticed that I was getting less feedback on them than normal though, and felt a little discouraged. Maybe you guys didn’t like them quite as much lately? I had decided that obviously I wasn’t doing as well as I thought I was and got a little bummed out.
My life has finally begun to settle in to one place over the past couple of days and last night I realized that while I’ve managed to send out the newsletter everyday, I had forgotten to upload the paintings to the blog! Suddenly, I felt pretty silly. Here I am worried that no one likes my paintings, when actually many of you hadn’t even seen them!
So there are two lessons here.
The lesson for me: Don’t assume that everyone hates your work, maybe there’s a problem that you haven’t expected.
The lesson for you: Sign up for the newsletter if you don’t want to miss anything! You’re dealing with an absent-minded artist here!
Enjoy the new paintings, and stay tuned for a few pictures of some of my other projects next week!
