Paula of (http://www.etsy.com/shop/PaulaArt) has been the first artist to respond to my request for posts for my “Making It” category. Here is her entry:
Thanks Paula, I plan to have a couple of my own ‘Making It’ posts in the next few days. I would love to have other artists do this also. My thought is that few people have any idea of what goes into the art work they see as a finished work.
I think they would feel more of a connection with it, value it more, and be willing to pay more for it when they see what is involved in the process. I plan to link to my ‘Making It’ posts from my Etsy description for those who might be interested. It only takes me 10 seconds to snap a photo while I think about what I’m going to do next.
At the very least, I’m interested in how other artists do what they do. And, if someone has an idea how I can do something better or easier, I’d appreciate that also.
Please send your entries to email@example.com thanks, Mike
