Can it be that the calendars have all been turned and we are all on the same page? June!
This is the beginning of the open air venues in my area. Art fairs, farmers markets, painting on location, photo ops around every corner! Keep an open mind and look for places to create art and display or sell your art.
You don't have to work in a brick and mortar (helps if it rains, though) to sell your work or to promote your work, just get it out there for people to see and fall in love with.
Look for groups that are having events for families and children. Volunteer to set up and draw in front of the group or as an added attraction, provide a hands on experience for the visitors. Make sure you have contact info to hand out in case the visitors of this event would like to see you again! I believe in selling my work, if this is one of your goals as well, be prepared for it but don't count on it.
By this I mean, be ready to sell if the opportunity comes up, but don't be disappointed if nothing sells, people may just be looking. Be consistent and have a price list or stickers on the work so that you are ready to tell people the cost. A wishy washy answer to a potential buyer's question is unprofessional, be prepared to answer, even if your answer is NFS.
PARTING THOUGHT: What do you think?
I have been photographing flowers as usual but have also logged in many great shots of CLOUDS. I don't know what I am going to use this info for yet but I have snapped dozens of interesting formations and views. I will post a few here and if you have any ideas about what and where I might use them for, let me know.
