Anyone can see how long it has been since I've blogged--and I've not even visited my website in ages. For that I am embarrassed and ashamed.
Many artists lack confidence--I am one of those artists. I thought only friends and fellow artists visited my website. I gave out my card at exhibitions never really expecting people to go and look at my art online. And I NEVER thought that complete strangers would ever find MY website while browsing. There are millions and millions of choices out there--why would I stand out?
Well, I'm thinking...some people must get lost online and just find me by accident. AND THEY DID.
Today, I finally checked out my site. And OMG two people I'm sure I've never met wanted to purchase my art. They wanted my work for loved ones--gift for special events in their lives--anniversaries. Well, not checking my website regularly, NOT SINCE MAY 2019, cost me the possibility of sharing my art. It's not the money--I've been remiss in replying to someone interested in what I do. I've appeared flakey and disinterested which is quite irresponsible. I am not that person! I just thought no one was really visiting my website so why check it regularly.
I am just so very sorry for Jamie and Pamela. They waited for a reply and did not get one. For that I am ashamed. If I'm going to have a website, the least I can do is keep up with it and respond to interested parties.
One of many lessons I've learned today is: Don't be surprised! My website isn't invisible--some may visit and have something to say about my work--and they might even want to purchase it.
