My Week so Far @wallartbyemily by Emily Duchscherer Kirk

So Far this week….

Welcome to my art blog,

Today I’ll be talking about my plans for the rest of this week,

It’s snowing and cold today in the studio.


My Six Painting Challenge

On Friday I started a challenge to motivate myself in to using impulsive ideas to create six large paintings in a week,

Six months has pasted since I have used these skills to create this sort of work,

But I remembering quickly, Like getting back on a bike after you haven’t cycled for a while.

So I’m only have two days left and I’m halfway through,

I’m going to try some very quick painting techniques and see what happens,

Painting number three didnt come out as I wanted but I was happily surprised by the outcome.

Sometimes the best way to work is to paint not to think too much about the results.

Be Free.




So I’ve been attending an online course called Instagram for artists,

It’s really helpful so far,

It covers how to be professional and have a better online presence.

I’ve also been speaking to a lot of other artists which really helps to motivate,

Support is hard to get when you work on your own,

Sometimes you need another opinion or perspective on your work,

So this is great as I now feel I have a group of artists to help me out.


My plans for promoting my art

So, I’m concentrating on improving my website and social media presence,

It is the best free promotion you can get,

Because if the fact that most people now shop online,

It’s the smartest way to build your business.

I don’t know what the future is for shops around the world.

What do you think?


Drive safe in the terrible weather and wrap up warm guys,
