Personally, I like the "techie" stuff. Many artists don't see it as creative, but I differ. Maybe it's because for some reason my detail-oriented nature gets satisfaction and actually a boost from doing these things successfully. Well, up to a point. The point of...Get Me Out Of Here! You might know what I mean.
Then the next phase...Ok just one more thing to try...kicks in.
That's been my experience in the past few days. While being in "lockdown" (what a horrible word!), there has been a lot of creativity going on here in the studio. Cleaning out and sorting stuff that has been in my supplies area for a while, I came across some things that started a whole new burst of ideas, so that has been inspiring. I will share them when they are completed, but meanwhile it's fun to make new things that are artistically inspired and also functional.
Here's a preview of one of the items I've mentioned above.
Here is one of the images in the set of 6 varied greeting cards that you can order.
I'll personally select them from a number of my different designs that each have a few colorways.

So, back to the tech thing. I've been working on a making a landing page on Mailchimp and while I've been using that service for email for...about 15 years now, I've never done a 'landing page' before, with the purpose of offering some of my artwork and other created items for sale directly. After all, it's hard to go to galleries and in-person open studios when things are closed and nobody is going places! I have to say that this current project has been pretty frustrating, with just one little glitch that I hope will be resolved SOON! Then, I will send it out. Meanwhile, when it gets too annoying I can go into the studio for some relief and change of energy!
