How are you doing?
Staying home and washing your hands? I hope so.
And I bet you’ve seen enough toilet paper memes, sanitizer bloopers and crisis as entertainment.
There is opportunity here.
The park has been filled with families, joggers, dogs and day hikers. Cars fill and spill over from the trail head parking. People are soaking up nature and this can only be good.
Art shows have been cancelled and art fairs postponed. I wonder if we’ll have our Open Studio in June? With every cancellation a different type of email enters my inbox. They’re invitations for online shows, pop-ups and Instagram story mentions. Artists from every country are connecting and introducing their audience to new artists. It’s wonderful.
I’ve been wanting to launch a shopping page on my website and now that is in the works. Curious collectors can now view a private password protected page of curated work just for them. Bespoke? Also thinking how I can teach my workshops online. Webinar? Videos? IG live?
This time has pushed me to consider new ways to pursue my goals and deepen my connection with my community. It’s as if we’ve been given an opportunity to step out of our life, hit the PAUSE button and take a look at ourselves from above. What is really going on?
When we hit the RESUME button it will be different.
