Hello, how was your January? I can't believe it's already February 1st! I said good bye to 2018 by barely being able to stay awake until midnight! Then I received a wonderful, surprise visit from my son to ring in the New Year with him so that was awesome!
My goal has always been to be consistent with my painting. The end of 2018 brought me to a place of being very focused with building my social media presence and being consistent with online marketing.
I implemented a monthly Facebook giveaway on my Facebook Page: Goddess Rockstar Arts
This has been very successful in helping me build my fan base as well as my relationships with the people who love my work!
It just so happens that my one and only finished painting of the month was my January giveaway painting of this beautiful tabby cat!
I must say that I'm really having a lot of fun with the Facebook marketing and giveaways!
Especially the live videos like this one here:
What's really cool is the new relationships I'm building with my fans! I'm meeting some great people on Facebook who are very supportive of my work! The woman who won the giveaway painting last month also happened to be someone who purchased a different painting of mine earlier in the month and this is some of what she had to say:
My oldest son keeps telling me that I need to feel more at home by adding color to my place... I was totally meant to meet you! I've turned people on to your work and will keep on following you, your wonderful colors are going to brighten up my life!
WOW! That kind of response to my work is overwhelming! This is just reaffirming that I'm doing the work I was put on this planet to do! So thank you, to all of you! If you're just meeting me online for the first time....WELCOME! If you have been following my work longer, NAMASTE... I'm honored to be on this journey with you and I hope we can make each other's life brighter. Isn't that what it's all about?
Here's a look at the other main painting I have been working on on January. I was inspired by the wildlife programs on NatGeo Wild on TV. This one is dear to my heart and still a work in progress:
