I've been avoiding some things for a very long time. Like taking the leap to sell my art. I don't know why I've been so actively avoiding it, surely fear plays a part. It's a scary thing to put your art into the world and wonder what people will think. Is it good enough, will it sell, will anyone be interested in seeing what you've created?? I don't know! But I aim to find out....
This is the year of getting my creative act together and today, finally, my art is available as prints or canvases here: www.artpal.com/AndreaDixon
Eventually I'll get my act MORE together and sell my work directly from here, on my website and that will be better. But for now, done is better than perfect. And we will call this a wrap in the short term.
I'm still in Antarctica and have been busy working on some other v e r y . b i g . t h i n g s . I'd like to tell you more about them now, but I don't want to talk about it before I have taken the massive action needed to get it off the ground. I've set myself the date of July 15th to put this project out into the world so stay tuned... It's right around the corner really.
Speaking of Antarctica... my station at Palmer Station has been so fun and incredibly beautiful. Last weekend some of my South Pole friends that are here took me boating in a little zodiac and we had humpback whales rolling through the water right next to our boat and Gentoo penguins porpoising nearby. It was a spectacular day on the water and I feel so incredibly fortunate to be here.
This week I'm focusing on monochromatic work. Obsessed with it you might say....
