After 2 successful openings of the Art of Fearlessly Doing Business I took a chance and opened the Fearless Art Works Gallery in Carefree, AZ. Opening night of the gallery was a success with 80% of the work selling before the show even opened and 250+ people attending open night.
I will never forget the week before the opening. I was grinding glue off the floor, painting the walls, completing the frames, managing the media, hanging the work…. literally working day and night. Being an artist who happens to be an entrepreneur is not for wimps. I was exhausted in these pictures having not slept more then a few hours a day for weeks and weeks. However, I felt pretty amazing though when the sales from this show helped me to operate my business without funding from other sources. You know you are a professional artist when sales support your business!
