Has someone stuck that sign on MY back? I have noticed a curious trend in my career…
Someone wants to use a piece in a brochure, another wants to include my work in a slideshow in Asia, a third wants me to do a presentation and workshops at an elementary school in her town, and another contacted me today… would I be interested in presenting to art teachers locally for an inservice day this week. The common denominator is that there is no financial
compensation available. Did I file for 501C inadvertently?
In the end I have agreed to them. (and say I need to be paid for one that involves travel) I want to get my work out there and support my community. I have also noticed that in the case of our book, Butterfly Kisses and Wishes on Wings: when someone you love has cancer… a hopeful, helpful book for kids. when we give without expectations it comes back to us in spades.
Point me in the direction of the magical place where good karma and good business intersect!
