I'm going to include a couple of "water lily" pictures from Ventana in Big Sur, because they remind me to breathe.
I need to sit down and come up with a yet-to-do list, and attach dates to each item. If I feel more organized, I'll be more confident that I'll be ready. And I'll have something to check off.
My new business cards came in mis-cut -- the picture on the side with the text goes all the way to the bottom of the card instead of having a white border around it -- those have to be redone. And one of the canvases I got has flaws -- a couple of little white spots on the front and one on the border. Fortunately, the replacement for that came today, but it's still frustrating.

I also have to write an artist's statement and start behaving like a professional -- I'm going out tomorrow on my first foray of self-promotion; I will go to various places to see if they will put a bunch of my cards on their counter. This will not be easy for me, as I tend to be better at self-deprecation than self-promotion, but I'll give it my best shot. Wish me luck!
Has anyone else had to do this kind of self-promotion? Any advice? I think I'll look at my water lilies for a while and breeeathe --
