This Again

I feel like I am having a little bit of an art crisis... (who me? No.....) Ugh!
Today I was going through work in my studio and I'm seeing stuff that I have to admit I'm really really happy with but I feel like I'm in this weird limbo with my work and I don't know what to do with it (longest sentence ever). The most logical thing is to show it, right? I just don't know what that venue would be for my work. I could apply to shows but what shows? Most of the shows that come through my email seem quite academic. My work crosses the academic line. So where does that leave me? I have no idea.
I used to put my work on Etsy but I think it's so super duper hard to sell art online. Can I just tell you for the millionth time it's hard to be making art outside of school. Only for me the problem is not the making. It's the showing. I make work all the time. I have some pieces for sale at Cracker Jax and I adore having my work in that venue but I would really love to try to get it into shows and traveling.

Please is there anyone out there with advice for a girl who just wants to draw hearts all day and then hang them in a gallery?

Art is hard. And by art, I mean the artist's dilemma. I feel ya, but there are not a lot of good answers. Keep making what you care about... <3

I completely understand. maybe we should brainstorm and try to come up with lots of places/galleries to submit our work to.
I always love to see your new work.
