Well, I could pretend that my working day is entirely focused on painting. The reality is, of course, as with any small business, that there are other practical and administrative matters to contend with. My friend gave me the paperweight as a joke (she knows how I love paperwork)! At the moment, fuelled by coffee, I am doing bookkeeping and getting organised for my tax return. I also have to manage my website orders, reply to email enquiries and update my website content regularly. There is quite a lot of admin really. I can’t help feeling that all this bookkeeping is valuable time away from the easel but it is an essential part of my business as any small business owner will know.
Later, when I can stand no more, I plan to make a start on a painting to illustrate a website!
