A Place for Creativity & Creative People In CNY
So, it's 2012. Where did 2011 go to? It's time to start getting ready for upcoming events. I worked on a few commissions in November and December, but didn't feel really inspired to do new drawings of my own. I figured while I'm in my New Years slump I'd update my CNY Artists page since it's been sitting here since November without any progress.
I uploaded a few of my drawings. Some were commissions, and some were my own. I didn't know what to put in the description line, so I left it pretty basic. If there are those interested in more details about the drawings I can add it. I'll upload more soon. I'm still getting used to the CNY Artists page so I'm still kind of just exploring.
It's going to be a busy year this year with all the things planed, but lets hope it's a good one.

Some here will remember me. I've been away on some writing adventures. I was originally involved on numerous sites, and had to cut back to concentrate on my bread and butter, my published works. Since I've been gone, I've sold numerous poems and short stories. Add to this a few books I've had published recently as well as all of the Editing I've been doing on other writer's short stories and Novellas. My book cover work is advancing too.

Notes about NETWORKING from "The Profitable Artist" by Artspire
“...is about developing a base of people who will support your efforts and want you to succeed....
Networking is about finding and building relationships with people you care about who are linked to new opportunities, new markets...”
Attend art openings and start making new friends.
“A genuine interest in other people delivers a genuine interest in you.”

At the Hang Local, Artist and curator Ty Marshal asked me this question:
Maria, you had a lot of art shows last year. What is your secret?
At that time my only response was networking.
Networking did help me find new opportunities to show my art in different venues,
but I realize that I didn't five a complete answer.
The real "secret" that helps me, and many other professional artists,
to showcase my work is the awareness of the many web sites that publish opportunity listings.

Just wanted to post an update about the Delightful Devas. Although we are still selling the Delightful Devas as canvas wall hangings, the Devas decided they would like to see more of the world.
As a result, they are now available as beautiful ladies tee shirts as well. This way they able to get out into the world on a more personal level. Be sure and stop by the CNY Artists' store in Shoppingtown Mall to see them. They will be vey happy to see you!

The really cool thing about being an artist is that I can leave my junk all over the house and just call it a "still life".
And guess what????
You can learn how to paint a still life...or how to creatively leave your junk around the house.
