The Storm is Coming

by Doug Hoppes on 4/22/2014 7:14:37 AM
5 Comments

When the clouds start moving in fast, you want to be in that position of control. You want to know if a gallery calls you at a moment's notice with a show, you have 20 paintings for a show AND still be able to support the other venues where you sell your art. You want to be prepared for that storm. If you are prepared, it could be a fun ride with a lot of sales, lots of new customers, and lots of new opportunities. If you aren't prepared, you have a great chance of damaging your reputation, losing sales and losing some future opportunities. [...]

The Single Most Important Piece of Advice I Can Give You about Pursuing Your Art

by Carolyn Henderson on 4/21/2014 7:24:29 AM
18 Comments

Now if you, like some of my progeny, are cobbling together three minimum wage jobs just to survive, this won’t seem especially helpful, but my experience is that many, many people who make a decent amount of money are convinced that they don’t, and they’re living paycheck to paycheck. Some of them are convinced that there is no way that they can cut any more out of their budget -- and then, when their hours or cut, or their pay scale plummets because they lose one job and replace it with another, they discover that yes, indeed, they are able to cut in places they never dreamed possible.

I have learned that my right brain (my creative side and the one that paints) is full of chaos and loves to be in the Zone BUT, I have to engage my left brain (analytical, organized and intellectual side) to access usable knowledge, keep me on target mentally and not wondering off somewhere in the chaos.

If you do not have good current photographs, take some more! Take many! With digital cameras, any photographs that cannot be used can easily be deleted. If you know someone who is a keen photographer or does photography as a hobby, they may enjoy taking some photographs for you. (NB Whether professional or amateur you will always need to get permission to use someone else’s photographs). [...]

A Spot of Color

by Donald Fox on 4/11/2014 7:28:55 AM
6 Comments

We gain a huge amount of information through our senses all the time, much of it being visual. Increased awareness enables us to perform more effectively and efficiently. Some of these basic responses are old survival mechanisms. It would have been very useful to distinguish particular colors and patterns of dangerous animals, for example, in order to avoid them. Designers use specific colors to enhance architectural space and in some cases to set mood. Advertisers use color to sell their products by making them more appealing. Even supermarkets sometimes use colored lights in produce and meat departments to make goods more attractive to customers. There are many books that give in depth analysis of color theory and its applications. Artists study color for their own practical use, but everyone is affected by color. It is useful to understand how color works and how it can be utilized to enhance our lives. [...]

Take a Chance... On Myself

by Doug Hoppes on 4/8/2014 7:14:50 AM
11 Comments

In the end, you are the only one that can decide whether or not the risk you take is worth the changes that you have to make. If you don't take the risk, you, most likely, will not improve and get better. This is extremely true as an artist. For me, there are two situations for my art work. I can just paint for myself and never show my artwork to anybody. No stress. No loss of money from training or art fairs. No rejection. However, I would not see myself improve at a rate that I would view to be acceptable. OR I could put my artwork out there for people to criticize, go into galleries and deal with the rejection by some of them, show my work in art fairs and potentially lose money, and take classes/workshops to potentially improve my work to a professional level... at the cost of time and money. I go for the second method. It's my way to become the best artist that I think that I can be. [...]

Skol'ko. How Much?

by Karen Cooper on 4/2/2014 7:14:15 AM
9 Comments

I would like to toss out there the idea, that the images we see are not nearly as important at the moment of seeing, as they are after we've rolled them over in the old thought process function. As they are after we play in the sketch book with them. As they are after we struggle over the personal decision about what to leave out, what to add in. As they are after we start to put them on the canvas with our favorite color palette. [...]

How Bad Do You Want it? A Tim McGraw Song That Lays Down a Challenge to Visual Artists

by Kelly Sooter on 4/1/2014 7:13:10 AM
17 Comments

There's a high price each of us will pay depending on what level we choose to take our artistic gifts. If we know we have talent and skill to develop and use, yet choose to do it only as a hobby (perfectly fine life choice), or choose to paint for pleasure and an occasional sale (also an ok choice), or to put pedal to the metal and produce and market our art as a professional, there will be a high price to pay. For those who do not develop their art as much as they could have, there may be profound regret later on. For those of us who go "whole hog", there are some events we can't attend, or people we can't spend much time with -- and those exact a very high price - believe me. [...]

Artist Janet Fish Reminds Us That the Road is Never Easy

by Brian Sherwin on 3/29/2014 8:47:54 AM
16 Comments

In closing, I know that many readers have experienced economic hardships over the last several years. Some of you have mentioned that you have taken a second job in addition to a 'day job' -- others have mentioned cutting corners on art materials and studio space. These situations are often mentioned with a sense of guilt or shame. Keep your chin up! Clearly some of the most famous artists have 'been there' as well at some point -- even after reaching a high level of financial success. You are not experiencing failure... you are experiencing life. The road is never easy... even when it appears that you have found your art marketing path. [...]

Who Wants to Deal With All That Stress?

In the end, I will sell more paintings if I spend more time at the easel. My time at the easel is not effective if I'm stressed and worrying about a lot of other issues. I need to focus on the painting. In addition, if my painting looks good, I'll feel less stress about that. When you have limited time, you better that you can set up a good situation at the easel, the better that you'll do in the long run. [...]
