Manifest Success with a Big Brush

Manifest Success with a Big Brush

I have my own story to tell today. As full-time artist and the author of Manifesting 1,2,3 and you don’t need #3, I recently used manifesting to help with my artistic career.

Successful artists have to constantly produce works to create income but it is also necessary to have multiple ways of having our works seen. Having been in the art business for over 45 years now, I have learned that galleries are very important for an artist’s career.

Ideally, you want to be represented by a gallery that is enthusiastic about your work and with a clientele that is a good match for what you are creating. I remember thinking about this in late 2017 and I came up with the idea of having new gallery on the east coast or in Santa Fe.  It would be a little too much pressure to get two galleries at the same time, so I started to look at Santa Fe Galleries online.

After the initial search that left me without a clear choice of a Santa Fe gallery to contact, I started looking at East coast galleries. I did contact one on the East Coast but I was told it was a bit premature for them to acquire a new artist. That being done, I stopped the online searches and went to work on manifesting a solution.

This is the script I created to say every day:
“I’m in my future and I am very, very successful as an artist
I have tipped it over, having mastered this artistically, professionally and financially.”

To that, I added more galleries and other improvements:
“I am very efficient at making my artworks and I get better with each one. They thrill me and they thrill the many that view them. People feel compelled to buy my works and they do, placing them everywhere, some in prestigious locations and museums.

I have numerous galleries and representatives that are very successful in consistently selling and placing numerous originals of my art every month. I am selling everything I make, older and new works very quickly.”

Two months later in February of 2018, I was contacted by the owner of a well-established gallery in Connecticut, the Sorelle Gallery, and asked to exhibit there. I immediately sent her the available oils I had in the studio.

That contact was followed three months later by another invitation to exhibit with a Santa Fe gallery on Canyon Road, Dominique Boisjoli Fine ArtDominique has been in business there for 28 years, a real accomplishment. The timing of the Santa Fe gallery was perfect since I had the previous three months to create more works to send out.

Although the East coast and Santa Fe galleries weren’t precisely specified in my daily manifesting, it had been my original intention and I had often thought about those two locales. My manifesting script was intentionally open to all possibilities and as it turns out, everything worked out perfectly and with the timing that worked best for me.

There are other parts of my manifesting script that have happened as well, but that’s another story…

I am so very grateful!

    Thank you Ken! Such helpful stuff to understand how your “specifications” were defined, or not defined, but that the heart and intellectual intent moved with your new criteria.

    Always grateful to read your posts!
