Progress Update: 11/25/13
When I started this blog, I promised to use it to mark my progress towards a more creative career. 79/100 paintings later, I think I’m overdue. So, here are some exciting new things that have come together in the last couple months.
- I completed 79 5x7s. They’re all here. Just keep scrolling.
- I re-learned that writing is hard. Each 5x7 set takes a few days to paint, but it’s really the writing part that slows me down. I’ve actually completed 85+ 5x7 paintings, just haven’t had the time to write something about each of them yet! I would like to continue making and posting 5x7s here after I reach 100 paintings, but I may have to sacrifice some of the writing in order to keep moving at a decent pace.
- I started an Etsy shop! I’m selling prints and greeting cards of all the 5x7s from this site, as well as a few other paintings (shown above). I love custom orders, so just send me a note if you have a request. Check it out: sylvieceres designs (http://www.sylvieceres.etsy.com)
- I’m still trying to figure out what else to sell. Let me know if you have ideas or requests. Anybody in the market for a new iPhone cover? Coasters? A lunchbox? You can pretty much print on anything these days.
- I applied to be a vendor at a holiday craft fair, but didn’t end up getting accepted. I knew it was a long shot but was still bummed. Keeping my eyes open for similar opportunities in the future.
That’s pretty much it. Have a good day! Looking forward to your feedback in the final stretch of this project. Thanks for reading and viewing! and feel free to ask me questions anytime.
