Yesterday I shared five things you can do to stay positive about your art. Here are a few more!
1. Remember that your art work is NOT made to please people. It's made to please yourself. This is why you became an artist right?
2. If you are mad, frustrated or discouraged, your artwork is going to show it. Don't let that stop you! Use your emotions to your advantage, you'll be surprised at how good you'll feel which gives you a positive outlook on everything.
3. Try different things. If you paint landscapes, then try painting abstract instead. If you mostly paint still life, try painting figures.
4. Take a short break from art. Step back and breathe. You are a good artist, maybe you need a vacation.
5. Slow periods happen in just about every business, and they will happen to you, too.
6. Rather than panicking, slashing prices of your art, or wondering why you ever thought you could be an artist in the first place, stay focused on constructive things that you can afford to do while you have available time.
7. If you’re just starting out, you might be experiencing the first evidence of the sale cycles in your art business. There is a busy season for buying, and sometimes you can go into a temporary slump during a usually busy time.
Stay positive. Don't discount the fact that being an artist requires a lot of hard work and dedication. Just don't ever forget how lucky you are to be an artist.
