What Do I Do All Day in My Atelier?

Updated: Apr 3

I let the crisp sea breeze waft through my locks, and stare wistfully out my expansive windows, as my paintings magically paint themselves, my personal assistant tracks my art pieces and takes care of the accounting, and an enchanted fairy fills out submissions forms to shows. You would be surprised to find out that an artist does much more than just make art. I sure was. Conducting an art practice is running a small business. This entails plenty of paperwork, emailing, book balancing, marketing, networking, tax-paying, inventory tracking, archiving, packing, shipping, writing, and finally art-making.
