I'm tired of my own nonsense. What is this junk I hear in my own head??? "They accepted me! They rejected me!" Nonsense! I am walking through a field of flowers, and some of them will spray me with yellow gunk, so I avoid those; and some of them look nice but have hooky thorns - so I disentangle, put on a band-aid and keep on a'walkin'; and some of them caress my face as I lean down to smell them. It's my good fortune to be honing my skills around discrimination, judgment, and plain ol' horse sense.
In fact, there's something else in the field: brand new, never-before seen plants, and I'm just the girl to plant 'em! I'm bringing the seeds of Art Licensing Awareness to those who didn't even know they needed me, or that they could need me!
I'll be at an Entrepreneurial Fair in a few days, and while I'm hawking my cards, I"m also hawking Art Licensing - which means I'm going to be educating some folks! (The nice extra in this is that to some of them I'll look like a brilliant goddess of knowledge. Won't that be fun? Why yes it will!) I'm printing out some pages with art shown on products (no, I have not had any products actually created yet, but I have put together images of what shower curtains, and mugs, and clocks and all kinds of things will look like with my beautiful artwork on it!). I will have those pages at my table, and I will have them tabbed: Cards, Art Licensing for Your Business, Wall Art. And people will stop and look and say to me, "What is Art Licensing?" and I will say, "So glad you asked!"
And since I will have these sample pictures in my book (alongside my designs for wall art and cards), even those who can not imagine how they could make good use of what I have to offer - personally,or professionally - will be helped to think outside of their normal ruts! I will see the little light bulb go on over their head, and hey presto! they will fill out my order forms like rabbits creating lots of smaller rabbits!
It should be fun, and I'll bet you it turns out to be lucrative!
So...Keep creating - not just the artwork of your hands, but the artistry of your fine minds - and I'll meet you on the flip side of this one and let you know what happened!
Cheers and blessings!
