Getting Started

Getting Started - student project

I do acrylic and watercolor painting, mostly of nature, and am starting to look into different avenues for selling my art with the hope of being able to shift to creative work full time. I've always been afraid of trying to create a business for myself and my art because I'm scared that the business aspect will take too much time away from actually creating and then painting won't make me as happy as it does now (plus all the typical self doubt that comes along with putting your own art out into the world!). I'm at the point now where I want to take a serious look into the different avenues and get something going even if it has to be a side business to start out.  Instagram seems to be a popular way to showcase work so I think getting that set up is one of the first steps.
