Elven World: Return of The Tuatha de Danann

Elven Mythology & Spirituality, Celtic culture, multidimensional Earth

Any advice on this wold be great :)

 

So here is the problem (highlight Spoiler = "I think too much") I have been working on a project for over a year.

 

The same project I'm on about all the time with the musicial and the art work I'm doing for the songs. WELL.

That has come to fruit it looks like...or starting to bloom if you will.

 

A gallery is willing to advertise in 35 publications for us, hold a cocktail/wine and cheese thing for the art and music.

They say it can be packaged and 'sold' to other galleries that are looking for new things to have. They kind of order the package (Art/music from the album) and pay us for setting it up.

 

They say they can have from anywhere to 400 to 4000 people show up at these things.

They have also offered to host my stone carvings in their gift shop as a separate deal.

The band and I have spent the last year flogging this art showing/CD release for over a year on all sorts of sites. There has been vidoes made, art work shown, updates and progress.

 

So the problem I have is that I was just gonna paint 10 painting for some one and call it done. I'm not comfortable with the lime light or smoozing with people. I don't want to take my love, my art, my hobbie, and now call it a "job".

Well...inless that job makes be a TON of money  - if not that - it's no fun...it's a JOB.

 

I'm more comfortable saying I'm a welder than I am an artist, and even still more comfortable calling myself a published author than I am an artist. I don't want to be trapped in that moment when I fail. I don't really feel comfortable being that kind of person who does it for the money, or does it because rich people come to the show, or something crappy like that. I just want to do art when I feel like doing art, not when the gallery tells me I need to pop something out soon..that looks like I'm setting myself up for failure in my eyes.

 

So I'm not sure what to do.

Just do that art I said I would and step out if the gallery deal?

Go through with it and just hide away after :)

I don't want it to turn into work - it's too fun to ruin it like that.

It does Daniel, thanks.

 

I need to find a way to drum up an extra $1000 now for the prints.

 

I'm just going to jump in the deep end and see if I sink or swim.

With my father's art lifestyle - His advice would be to go with fair sounding art shows while avoiding signing any papers. Even with displaying in book stores or craft shops, one sure thing is that many will start asking for your card and number. It's best to go with what your time schedule can handle. Hope that helps & best of luck with the artwork. /|\

Multi Dimensional Reality

The world as you know it - all that you see, taste, feel and touch, comprises only about 5% of all of the stuff of the universe. The other 95% is what we have considered "nothing" or the "firmament" or the heavens or mystic Other Worlds. This 95% is multi-dimensional and consists of potential realities that may be perceived.
