I had a phone consult with an artist.
Then she sent me an email with some good news, see below.
Rather than just reply, I decided to have a chat with her and let you to listen-in.
Just thought I’d drop you a note.
I’ve done a lot of thinking and writing since our call, and one of the things that I took the most away from was you telling me that “it’s not about you, it’s about them.”
I started doing custom bridal bouquet paintings, launched it as a product on my website and immediately sold two custom paintings last night upon launching.
People are very excited to have this preserved as a memory for them.
One of the things that stopped me initially was that I don’t paint at all realistically… but it turns out that my customer doesn’t want a photo realistic painting of their memories.
They want the magical treasured memory.
So, I’m popping their language into all I do.
I’ve also emailed several customers and talked to a lot of people about my art (haven’t had time for the excel spreadsheet yet), and the one consistent word they use is “happy”.
At any rate, I really appreciated your time, and the results I think are going to be amazing.
Much more work to do, but I know where I’m going at the very least.
