Standing / sitting in your own shop waiting for the customers that never come can be soul destroying although I know I have had a December sales total comparable to 2019 in the shop.
So some Art for fun time. First outfit – Artisans on the beach boiler suit the first one I drew during that event in December 2018 plus pith helmet of course.
I sold Christmas cards today and happy to now have exceeded 4100 greeting card sales.
So what should I draw? An art postcard? Another wooden box? A picture at A4 or A3 size? Or a hat?
It is a pith helmet, they are associated with hot areas so today’s theme was a Jungle hat. I didn’t draw any paper plan and have just added to it through the day as I felt for the next stage. Is there a definite plan? No. Is it proving fun? Yes
Stages of hat
There has been progress since last photos and I will share this tomorrow. Closed shop early as hadn’t seen any visitors or customers for 4 hours, just friends dropping by including fellow shopkeepers.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-4360-600eaca61183d' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=4360&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-4360-600eaca61183d' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-4360-600eaca61183d'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
