Lovely Lonely Things

My name is Kat Fedora and I make art for the free spirits, bohemians and weirdos.

So I should probably be asleep right now, but my weird little brain is not having it. I have  been taking a few day off from doing any painting and drawing to focus on….. business 😱😱😱 ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Business is hard. Business is boring. Business is the thing that is going to help me get to the next level. What do I mean by ‘business’?

Every part of being an artist that does not involve actually making the work.

Because I have got to tell you, if I just could paint and draw all day and make a living, I would be living easy. I freakin’ LOVE that part. I am good at it. I have so many ideas. I jump around from project to project and a million other ideas get lost in the storm. Even when I feel the ol’ painters block setting in, it never lasts long. Even when I wake up one morning and have forgotten how to paint and every thing I do is suspiciously awful…. it is still not such a big deal. I know I will remember again soon.

But the business, oh the business…. There is the marketing, the social media algorithm dilemma, apparently I should have been building an email list, promoting without being to self promotional, embedding code from mail service providers, uploading, downloading, resizing, describing, contemplating if I should join yet another social media platform, should I do vlogging? What is vlogging? Which of these free webinars is the webinar for me? Why isn’t my picture appearing, my picture should be appearing? Seriously, how am I out of packing tape? Like I said, I can’t sleep, I could just stay on this rant all night… but I won’t. You all get the idea.

So I keep thinking I am going to turn out the lights, but then I am like 😳😳😳 “I put a pop up on my website. Does this make me an asshole? Pop ups are annoying. Maybe I should leave it; it did take me and hour to figure out how to do it. Oh my god, I cannot leave it, what kind of a person am I. I should just go back in and figure out how to make it a widget. Yea, widgets are non threatening.”

Then I was like, while I am here, a few other things need a little polishing. Then I was like, I should write a blog post right now.

If I had just painted today, I would probably be sleeping like a baby.

What is a blog post without a pic? So here is a pic of what I would have worked on today, if I was not busy becoming a social media marketing genius.
