Marketing workshops and new paintings is a lot like that. (Only usually I get to do it at a desk with a cup of coffee and in the shade.) You can't just design a website and place an expensive ad in a glossy magazine. Marketing is a lot of work. When I talk to professional artists, most agree that the bulk of their time is not spent painting but in seemingly-peripheral tasks like marketing.
There should be something similar to the USDA's Cooperative Extension Service for painters.
With that in mind, I leave you with the following painting while I go off to sharpen my hoe. It's a painting I did over two sessions in the field plus a little studio time for tweaks. This is a more muted palette than some of you have seen me use, but I was trying very hard to get the color I saw matched exactly. Sedona's not as garish as you might think!
