Life of Art SitRep #90 Abracadabra

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 46 photographs trying out "Sammon Swirl" technique. Pretty cool. I'll put one up when I get a chance.

  • Post-processed Red Dianthus with Raindrops photograph using what I've learned about Photoshop in recent months. Created a collection of Red Dianthus With Raindrops products. Noticed 6 templates didn't show up during quick create, so I'll have to go back again to make those items. (Zag!)

  • Made calendar posters with Rainbow Polka Dots on White, Rainbow Planets, North Window, Puffy Clouds On Blue Sky, Red Linen Fabric Texture:

  • Remade new cases for Double Arch and finished making Rainbow Bullseye wrapped canvas and tile which were stuck in 'in progress' limbo. Made Rainbow Bullseye boxes with full bleed.

  • Finished making Tiles, 2" boxes, and Tile Gift Boxes for remaining 21 suitable designs.

  • Made Rainbow Polka Dots on Grey image and created a product line for my store. I like how the grey has an almost metallic feel to it.

  • Zblogged Rainbow Bullseye and Rainbow Polka Dots on Grey.

  • Posted 19 of my products to blogs. Set up my Rocklawn Arts blogger blog to receive email posts to and started posting to it on Wednesday.

  • Tweeted, zblogged, and FB'd some sales.

  • Renamed photo files in 2 folders.

  • Reworked my avatar from scratch and swapped it out everywhere I could think of that I have a profile picture.

  • Watched "Exploring the Light with Rick Sammon" Creative Live workshop.

  • Finished reading September 2011 issue of Popular Photography.

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