10 Ways Perfectionism Kills Art and Joy

  (via artistswhothrive.com)

Don't Create This! (Create it!)

  (via www.professionalartistmag.com)


 "It is impossible for your art to be liked by every art lover on the planet. I understand that trend chasing has worked for some artists... BUT it is a real gamble! People are fickle. Art market trends change. Doing what you love AND keeping at it is the best way to go after everything is said and done. Being YOU in the studio is a bet you can live with! Your following is waiting... create and they will come." (Brian Sherwin)

Don't tell me how long to look at art

  (via www.theguardian.com)

Artist Spotlight: Pablo Picasso, Quotes

  (via painting.about.com)


 "Unlike some artists - Matisse, for example - who wrote prolifically about their work, art, and painting, many artists prefer for their art to "speak for itself." Picasso was one such artist. He did not like to write about his art and did not like to be quoted. " (Lisa Marder)

How to Use Facebook Interest Lists for Your Art Business

  (via www.artbizblog.com)


 "Doesn't it just get your goat that Facebook is keeping your business page posts from your fans? Doesn't it drive you batty that you don't see posts from your favorite businesses in your feed anymore? The reason for both of these is that Facebook thinks businesses should pay for exposure. I get that: Facebook is trying to run a business. I've ponied up more than a few bucks myself to the big blue F." (Alyson Stanfield)

Artists' Websites

  (via www.edwardwinkleman.com)


 "I often lecture that there's no reason an artist shouldn't have a web presence in the age of blogger. When the discussion comes down to brass tacks, though, (i.e., what should an artist's website look like), I feel the priorities should be: Good, large images of the artwork, easy navigation (skip the bells and whistles), good - easily found contact information, a bio, a CV, a bibliography." (Edward Winkleman)

Discuss: Do any of you keep a physical portfolio of your work?

  (via faso.com)


 "An artist friend of mine recently lost a decade of images after her computer crashed. She failed to keep copies -- everything was on her computer. She had stopped keeping a physical portfolio over a decade ago. Long story short, she no longer has images of works sold years ago. She likely won't be able to obtain images of all the artwork she has sold. With this digital tragedy in mind, do any of you keep a physical portfolio of your work (photographs or original works)? Perhaps you should..." (Brian Sherwin)

A French Artist Demonstrates How Not to Handle Criticism

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "Only an artist who is profoundly confused about the purpose of criticism, which is by its very nature complicated and subjective, could want reviews of his exhibitions to be simple and objective. Those types of reviews exist; they're called press releases." (Benjamin Sutton)

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "Many artists have been successful building a powerful presence on Facebook, Twitter, and other popular websites. However, history tells us that social websites that are popular today may not be as strong tomorrow-- think of how popular Myspace was compared to now. " (Brian Sherwin)

From failed preacher to struggling artist, exhibition traces Van Gogh's time in Belgian mining towns

  (via www.theartnewspaper.com)


 "Van Gogh can never have imagined that an exhibition based on his early drawings from the Borinage, Belgium's coal-mining region, would be the highlight of Mons' year as European Capital of Culture-and that it would be honoured with a royal opening. Appropriately, a blizzard hit Mons just before Belgium's King Philippe cut the ribbon on 24 January, mirroring the artist's sketches that depict coal miners trudging through the snow towards the pit-head." (Martin Bailey)

Discuss: Why don't artists support each other more often?

  (via faso.com)


 "A lot of artists claim that they don't have time to visit local exhibits unless they are showing -- yet you can bet your bottom dollar those same artists want people to show up to their exhibit! Perhaps we, the art community, should do a better job of setting a good example. After all, if we can't support art appreciation directly... who will? " (Brian Sherwin)
