The Market is constantly changing, but the good news is there are constantly more opportunities for artist. Competitions, Juried Shows, Galleries, Staging, Pop-up Shows, if you can think it you can do it! Be pro-active the Market won't come to you you must go to the Market. The key is to have a following of collectors and a following on-line. Keeping work fresh with a new energy is always a must. Inspiration comes in many forms. Personally I get inspiration from going to other artists' shows whether i like the art or not it doesn't matter it's viewing other artists inspiration. And it's highly entertaining. Go to openings and have fun!
