“I did it my wayyyyyyyyyyyy!” Frank Sinatra started his song with “And now the end is near, so I face the final curtain…” No worries. This illness isn’t terminal and I don’t plan on leaving the internet, just yet. Though, I do have my regrets and have felt like just giving up on putting my work out here for everyone to see. I’ve been posting my work for sale on the internet for about four years, now. I’ve worked a few of the popular print-on-demand sites. Work can mean a lot of things on those sites. Mostly, it really means exhausting yourself. For about a month I’ve entertained the idea of trying to sell work, myself, rather than trying to market it on the print-on-demand sites. Then, I realized that might have its own complications. I can’t give up. I need the money. I can’t work the sites as often as I’d like to because I’m just not well enough to do that. So…what to do?
To be honest….I don’t know. For now, I’m going to keep going, in hopes that things will turn around. Maybe I’ll have home parties? Go ahead, laugh! If some people can sell Tupperware in other people’s homes, why can’t I do that with my art? How about standing on the street corner, dressed as the statue of liberty, waving a big sign that says “Buy my American Art!” Maybe I’ll become an annoying art telemarketer. Hey..why not? I already have hang-ups.
