5 for Friday

I got a late start today.  I think my body is already on daylight savings time trying to get that extra hour.

Things have settled down enough that I can play hookey on Fridays and while the weather lasts, I'm going to be outside.  Here are a few from today's adventure.  I'm still getting the hang of my camera but I think I have mastered the "auto" setting; only a bazillion settings left to go!  I'm taking a photography class at the (Indianapolis) Arts Center next month so hopefully quality will improve.

The leaves are just starting to turn!
Need to master the macro.
I love the worm marks on this piece of driftwood.  It looks like an alien language!

Back on the 'bay

I am dipping my toe back into Ebay waters beginning today...
This beauty is up for sale now!
I'm going to list some larger vessels, discontinued colors, and past series here and see how it goes and if it goes well, increase and expand my offerings.  Etsy just hasn't been the fountain of sales it once was so I'm moving around a little.  
Listings will be once a week at first and I think I will stick with Sunday afternoons.  Since I'm doing 7 day auctions, ending on a weekend might be more convenient.

Shifting Gears

With the "big" shows out of the way, this is the time of year when I change focus.  I do a few local art shows but otherwise, it's time to reflect, redirect and recharge.

I'm taking an art marketing class at the Indianapolis Art Center right now hoping to learn some new and better ways of presenting my work and communicating with those interested in it. 

from my favorite website, ever
They also have a couple of photography classes that I want to take.  I ended up getting a different camera, a Nikon D3200 right before Bead Fest and I haven't learned half the buttons yet so that will be a big focus this fall.

My next event will be the 2nd Annual ISLAGA Bead Show on Sunday, September 30th.  The super nice folks at Rings and Things let us hold our show in conjunction with theirs for the ultimate in local bead shopping nirvana.  Details are on my EVENTS page, come visit us!

Of course I will be getting back to the torch soon and working on some new design ideas but my immediate focus will be to get more wee vessels and focals in the Etsy shop.  If you need something you don't see listed, just let me know and I will move it to the front of the line.
