My goal is to read one article from this site everyday until I've read all the articles. I've probably read most of them before already but they are helpful and sometimes I need reminding.
For example, there's an article about how to add value to your work by including more info about each piece. That is one of my goals moving forward as an artist. To keep better records of each piece in progress, and to keep notes about what went into each piece etc. I did this for 5 or 6 of the paintings in my current show where I used photos and narrative to show the progression of a piece from start to finish. Of all the things people commented on from the show, I got the most positive feedback about that. People seem to really enjoy seeing the behind-the-scenes process.
I bought a cheap mini camcorder that should come in on Tuesday. I plan to take a short video showing my new pieces in the gallery and I'll include this section that breaks down each step that went into some of the pieces...and hopefully I can set up the projected part of the show as well. We'll see if this new camera's any good.
