There is simply no way to take that much time out of painting and continue to be able producing art at a regular pace! It's ok though- this is really important to me too:)
So, anywhoo- what *I've* been doing for the market......Bill and I pretty much grow veggies and herbs for our own personal use, and since Ben and my Dad pretty much produce mainly veggies, what *I* do is buy fresh local organic seasonal fruits and transform them into tarts, preserves, mini cheesecakesglazed with said preservesand compotes.
Last fall, they were very popular, and I was CRAZY busy with it- we generally could sell as much as I could produce which is a good thing, but does tend to add chaos to an already busy life.....because I had a show coming up, and the growing season was pretty much over, we decided to take the winter off. But now that it's spring, here we are again!
Right now strawberries are in season, so that's what I'm working with.........
Bubba-Gump's shrimp factory from Forest Gump...anyone besides me remember that movie?
