As an artist, or any other entrepreneurial business for that matter, updating and refreshing social media accounts is time consuming. Curating my accounts is something that I have gotten better at with time and practice. Along with this, I came to the conclusion that I had to create a separate Instagram account dedicated to my art. I still share my art and creations on my personal Instagram page, but it’s a more clean, deliberate aesthetic on my dedicated account.
That being said, check out my dedicated Instagram account for my art, @art.by.marjorie
I hope to create a page that really shows my aesthetic and how my brain works through those perfectly square snapshots.
I have been able to take a week off from work, and it has been so productive! I’ve updated social media accounts, I’m posting to this blog, I’ve cleaned up my art room, and I’ve already sketched out some great ideas that have been percolating for a while. A trip to the beautiful Oregon Coast helped immensely as well! My husband and I got lucky and had a day of sunshine on Saturday, so walking by the ocean was warm and invigorating. We visited all the little galleries we hadn’t yet been to in Astoria, Cannon Beach and Manzanita, and it was all so inspiring. It was a much needed trip.
I’m looking forward to sharing more with you as my works in progress take shape! More paintings and maybe a coloring book are in the future:)
