    Hi Crista, I’m sorry I can’t make the call tonight To personally ask you these questions . I’m too tired. I know it’s not three hours before, but hopefully 2 1/2 hours is enough to have my questions answered. I’m already 85% through the course, the only thing I’m missing is the art fair essentials. Here are my questions : i’m thinking about getting rid of my social media. I was wondering if it’s possible to make a living as an artist without social media. Just with the website and a newsletter. What are your thoughts on this? My second question is regarding an upcoming trip I have to Europe for six weeks. I am usually in oil painter, but I’m coming to the conclusion that painting while traveling around 6 countries will be too difficult so perhaps it’s better if I do watercolor. What do you think about changing media? If oil painting is my favorite do you think I should attempt to continue to do oil painting while traveling? I look forward to waking up tomorrow morning and listening to your answers. Thank you Nicolás Luna
