  (via www.artistsnetwork.com)


 "I've had to be as creative with my money-making ideas as I have with my artwork, and supplement my income by also teaching art classes, writing books, and owning an art supply retail business in my studio. Like any other entrepreneur, I've had some losses. It just goes with the territory." (Lee Hammond )

Painted Outside of Your Box Lately?

  (via www.celebratingcolor.com)


 "We artists have often heard art instructors/gurus tell us to Paint outside of the box. This suggestion is usually couched in the encouragement for us to stretch our current approach to painting or to further our growth as an artist. Sounds good. Except there is a question that always pops up in my brain when I hear this. Could you demonstrate what you mean by painting outside of the box? Or, could you give an example of what YOU did to paint outside of YOUR box? Since I have not seen or heard an example, I thought I would share mine." (Carol McIntyre)

  (via www.figurines-sculpture.com)

Why are Tertiary Colors Always Defined Incorrectly?

  (via www.celebratingcolor.com)


 "Typically art instructors and authors state that tertiary colors are the hues between secondary and primary colors. For some reason, this misinformation runs rampant almost everywhere where color theory is taught. " (Carol McIntyre)

ART MARKETING 101

  (via www.wirelady.com)


 "If 99% of a gallery's art collection is paintings, take your 3D somewhere else. If they're representational and you're abstract, keep looking. Even if you can persuade the gallery to try you out, their clientele will be pretty locked into what they've got. So instead of wasting vital energy trying to force a fit, use your resources to find the right environment for your works." (Elizabeth Berrien)

How to Start Licensing Your Art (and Why You Should)

  (via lateralaction.com)


 "What's great about licensing is that you are able to fill in the gaps when art sales are at a low or in a seasonal slump. This helps immensely when you need to get the bills paid! If you want to do this full-time, then you have to expand your multiple streams of income. Licensing is a continual, residual income builder." (Natasha Wescoat)

Let's Have an Ar(t)gument: Can 'lesser' works damage your professional credibility?

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "MANY artists -- including a long list of notable names -- have offered painting studies and other less polished work. They are upfront about the status of the intention behind the work. A study is presented as a study. Nothing more, nothing less. In other words, they don't leave room for buyer confusion." (Brian Sherwin)

The Big Secret About Your Art Career That Nobody Is Telling You

  (via www.artbizblog.com)


 "The big secret you need to know is that there is no big secret. Stop looking for it and start taking action. If you take time to analyze the careers of successful artists, what they have in common is hard work. That's hardly a secret, but I think many artists are trying to avoid this hard work. Art should be fun, they think. So they keep looking for something that would make their businesses fun and easier." (Alyson Stanfield)

Just for Today: Try Something Different

  (via faso.com)


 "Don't try to impress other artists (as a profession). Try to connect with your audience (which may include other artists.) Just for today, lose the artspeak-and speak from your heart. Just for today, share what happened in your life that changed everything, that got you here from where you were before. If the what' is too personal, share the why'. Just for today... Try it!" (Luann Udell)

The Evolution of the Watermelon, Captured in Still Lifes

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "The watermelons of our summers are not the watermelons of yesteryear, as demonstrated by a 17th-century painting by Italian artist Giovanni Stanchi. The Renaissance still life depicts a sliced watermelon with a knife resting over pinkish, pale flesh full of dark seeds- much different from the lush reds with only a scattering of seeds that we see when slicing them open today." (Allison Meier)

Piece by Piece

  (via www.artnet.com)


 "Installation pieces are problematic, said veteran Chelsea art dealer Renato Danese, an understatement if there ever was one. He was talking about the kind of 3D artworks that sprawl throughout the gallery space, and may well be site-specific. They are also problematic for another reason -- they can be hard to sell." (Daniel Grant)

Discuss: Share your gallery representation tips...

  (via faso.com)


 "Clint Watson once suggested that it is best to check the exhibit calendar before contacting a gallery about representation. He stressed the importance of identifying a time when they are not overwhelmed with some huge show. By doing this you'll increase your chances of gaining their attention. Clint makes an excellent point. After all, you don't want to be viewed as a pest straight out of the gate. " (Brian Sherwin)

Discuss: Should you only focus on a gallery if it is 100% focused on art?

  (via faso.com)


 "An artist recently noted the difference between arts and crafts galleries compared to art-focused galleries. She mentioned the importance of deciding which type of gallery to pursue. She warned that arts and crafts spaces may have an 'anything goes' approach. Long story short, she feels one may distract from the other depending on your artistic and professional goals. What do you think? Should you only focus on a gallery if it is 100% focused on art? Does it matter? " (Brian Sherwin)
