So, you artists out there must know what “the waiting” is like…waiting to find out if you’ve been accepted for a show or event, waiting to see if you’ve received a commission or award, waiting for a client to pay you for work, waiting for someone to pick up artwork or receive delivered work. I figured I’d blog about this since I’m currently in a state were I’m waiting for almost all of those scenarios to happen!
Don’t get me wrong..I’d much rather be in this position than one where I have nothing going on with my art career…much better to wait for $ than to have none coming to you. Better to wait for clients to get their work than not to have clients! BUT, when you’re a full time artist whose life revolves around these things, it can get stressful. So my question to you is, how do YOU deal with “the waiting game?” Do you meditate ( sometimes this works for me but other times my mind is just too busy & I can’t focus). Do you leave the studio, freak out, eat, watch TV, start new projects?? Just curious since it can help to share ideas about what other creative people do to get by.
