I finished nights this morning & am currently filling boxes & making lists (purchased a kettle.. very important)
later today I move the first of my stuff into my new studio.
I have made the decision to rent a professional
studio with various other artists (& apparently
a death metal band, who live in the studio directly
next to mine.. note to self; don't forget Ipod)
This may be a short lived venture..
I have no idea what to expect.
I work long hours & varied shifts, but I get odd
days off in between, these days will now be spent
in the studio in an attempt to re-adjust the balance.
I have exhibited my work in many galleries & even
managed to sell some work.. here and there... so...
Obviously the professional studio doesn't come free
(or cheap) - to make this a viable venture I have a
set goal; at least one painting per month must be sold
to continue into the next month..
I don't see how otherwise to justify the need to
pay rent for a studio if I am unable to sell any work.
We shall see how I do.
This is a no risk situation from a 'money' view point,
having now paid everything I owe and being, for the
first time in 8yrs, completely debt free.
A good feeling, euphoric even.
I owe nothing; note to banks "go fuck yourself and bleed
to death in the hell of your own making"
seriously, if you do work for any kind of financial institution,
please kill yourself now.
So, this is the time to try and 'make something'
of myself other than being able to count paperclips
and fill in spreadsheets.
The games we play..
wish me luck.
