Yes I love my job!

Yesterday I shared with you part of my job as a working independent artist by showing you a trip to the framer. Later today I will be back at the framers picking up the finished pieces to ship them. I enjoy what I do. I thought I would give you a broader perspective by sharing a day so you can see the wide spectrum of my business. My day is a mix of business in person, online, marketing, tasks, and making art.

A shipment of 6 Joyful Fine Art bags arrived. YEA!! I just luv this picture!
I notified the shops who are selling them. Updated them in my etsy shop,
then wrapped the recently sold ones in tissue paper and raffia.
Then I wrap them in bubble wrap, with some added goodies for my customer.
I weigh the box, select shipping, print out the label and drive to the post office.

Next make art! Shown above is a few layers of acrylic paint on a gallery wrap canvas in progress "Paris Promise". I paint listening to music, with Max my shui tzu in the studio, birds by my windows, and my computer nearby to tweet on twitter.

Your work is inspiring! Fabulous colors, Robin. My kitty hangs out in my studio, too. He has his own chair but prefers my lap. I look forward to seeing more of your talent~

Thanks for these little peeks into the day of an artist, I love it.

What kind of music do you listen to? I've been working on a novel lately, and while writing I've been listening to several British artists (no one in my novel is British, so I don't know why) like Lily Allen, Duffy, Adele and Nick Drake.
