"The Everyday Life of a Working Artist".
And yes, that working artist is me. Arlene Marks
I have a tendency to take on a variety of projects whether they be murals, commissions, or my own fine Art. I frequently have to update my Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. And don’t get me started on YouTube, Tik Tok and Pinterest. I love those platforms and rarely post on it as I love browsing on them more.
So how do I get all done in a week. I have decided it is time for me to tell it all. The good and the bad. (To be more specific, the good is my accomplishments. The bad is the crazy stress, moment of being overwhelmed and then things I don't ever get done.)
This NEW blog will be full of tips and advice for anyone who has ever thought to follow their dreams and are just at the early stages of their journey. By starting my blog now, you will hopefully see my business grow and maybe by following me in my journey you can learn from my mistakes made and things I get right.
This includes all of my ideas, both the good and even the really bad ones (because I don't usually figure out they are bad ideas for quite some time). I will share how I manage my time, my tips to organization and the apps and software I use to get the work done. One of the most gratifying parts of my day is crossing off items on my to do list.
My goal is to blog all of the time instead of none of the time.
It will be a crazy ride but I think you will learn a lot or at least get a look into my world and have a better understanding of the work load a Full Time artist does.. Don't feel sorry for me as I am doing this all to my self. Since I am my own boss, no one is making me do all of these things. Except me.
Here we go.
