Life of Art SitRep #45

Every week, I work towards creating a life of art for myself. This is the journey, full of zigs and zags that are collectively, thankfully, progress.

Play along in the comments with your own pursuits if you'd like. (That's where I'll cheer you on.)

This week, I

•Arranged wooden chairs into living room tableaux outside (y'know, like you do) and also relocated the picnic table and its chairs into another scene so it will not ruin my background (once it's covered with enough snow for me to photograph it).
•Prepped Footprints in Snow, made it black and white and uploaded it. Created product line:

•Overhauled online sales spreadsheets.
•Revised my American Southwest lens a little.
•zblogged 15% off official Harry Potter products sale.
Tweeted various sales and did some other online promotion.
•Watched some of Jasmine Star Creative Live mini-rewatch. Posing bride & groom for photos, working in small spaces for variety of looks.
•Watched all of Zack Arias Creative Live mini-rewatch. Woman in fish tank. Safety first, yay! (During my time on film sets, safety was often second to getting the shot.)
•Watched most of "Jason Hoppe: Photoshop CS4 Mastery Week 15- Scrapbooking Extravaganza" on Creative Live.
In case it hasn't sunk in, Creative Live is awesome. Watch courses live for free, pay for downloads later. (They usually re-air live classes later on the same day to give people in other time zones a chance to watch it free too.) Check out their End of year sale. Great for someone creative in your life.
•Watched Grunge Backgrounds and Blending Modes, Using Adjustments You Never Thought About, Blending Modes and Adjustment Layers Photoshop CS5 tutorials.
•Listened to GoingPro podcast #20- networking at conventions/conferences.
•Drew and scanned 1 sketch.

How are your pursuits going?
