5 Things About Writer's Block No One Tells You

  (via skinnyartist.com)


 "Ask any type of creative artist when they get stuck and most of them would tell you the same thing. We tend to get stuck at the beginning of a new project, and then again when we're close to completing it. It doesn't matter whether your are staring at a blank page or an empty canvas, beginnings are hard." (Drew Kimble)

God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

  (via www.edwardwinkleman.com)


 "So stop coddling the artists who refuse to invest a little of their own time in taking advantage of the mountains of information available on how this all works, usually hoping to take a short-cut ahead of the other artists in their same position. There are no short cuts, and there really are no longer any excuses. " (Edward Winkleman)

How to varnish a painting created with Artisan Water Mixable Oil Colour

  (via www.winsornewton.com)


 "Wiping it very lightly over with white spirit allows you to clean the surface from any grease or grime that has got onto the surface. If there was any trace of grease on your painting and you varnished without cleaning it off, the varnish would reticulate into beads where the grease is. The cleaning ensures that the varnish applies well." (Winsor & Newton )

What Was the Pictures Generation?

  (via www.artspace.com)


 ""The Pictures Generation" is as elusive as any label attached to a group of contemporary artists. As it is often used, the phrase refers to a range of painters and photographers active during the 1970s and 80s whose work made use of images appropriated from mass culture. " ( Alex Greenberger)

Discuss: What kind of art buyers do you attract?

  (via faso.com)


 "It is often suggested that an artist only needs to focus on a handful of regular art buyers in order to be financially successful -- but it seems, based on my observations, that the majority of business-minded artists experience one-time buyers -- people who don't necessarily want to collect work by a specific artist.

Being an artist, trick or treat?

  (via www.artadvice.com)

Have an Artful Halloween

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "The Halloween traditions I share with my daughter go beyond searching for printable pumpkin carving patterns, decorative roasted pumpkin seed recipes, or having a Monster High movie marathon. Point-blank, I introduce art to my daughter on a regularly basis -- BUT we both love monsters... so the month of October is a special time for our art viewing sessions. I suppose you could say that she and I try our best to have an artful Halloween." (Brian Sherwin)
