Life of Art SitRep #74 Two-fer!

Every week, I work towards creating a life of art for myself. This is the zigzag filled journey.

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

  • Shot 152 photographs: plants, Mom and Dad, bridge view, school buses, and a crazy cool tower with scaffolding, among other things.

  • Used Inkscape to make Dark Red and Blue Rectangles and Light Blue and Dark Blue Rectangles images. Wrote product descriptions and created product lines including my first gift tag, woo!

    Light Blue and Dark Blue Rectangles and Dark Red and Blue Rectangles are now available in my shop on a variety of customizable gift items: iPad and iPhone cases, binders, prints/posters, cards, postcards, mugs, mini speakers, t-shirts, tote bags, magnets, buttons, stickers, keychains, mouse pads, ornaments, necklaces, bumper stickers, return address labels, gift tag, and stamps:

  • Tweeted, FB'd, zblogged Dark Red and Blue Rectangles and Light Blue and Dark Blue Rectangles folder links.

  • Unlocked a squidoo ad which will run for 1 month. Picked my Official Harry Potter gear lens since the timing is apt and perhaps the ad exposure will translate to a referral or two.

  • Revised Rocklawn Arts zazzle store introduction.

  • Starred some possible daylilies for shop.

  • Added Fireball Hibiscus to secondary title and tags for Red Hibiscus With Raindrops.

  • Tweeted Firework Hibiscus folder link for 4th of July.

  • Watched "Photographing Fireworks with John Cornicello" on Creative Live which you can still watch for free. Fun! If you're short on time, you can read his post which covers most of the show info. Alas, I didn't get out to photograph any fireworks myself because I haven't been feeling up to snuff. Perhaps I'll manage to track some down later in the summer.

  • Watched Scott Kelby video with a couple quick Lightroom (or Camera Raw) tips.

  • *******
    How are your pursuits going?
