Once we can look into the eyes of another person and see another human being who’s every bit as complex, lovable, contradictory, and confusing as we are, even those who are as yet undecided about our work, then we can make better decisions on how to handle their complaints, their doubts, their questions.

Why Can't Artists Be Like Writers?

by Christine Marx on 3/20/2015 9:02:58 AM
40 Comments

But is it deceptive to have a "pen name" as an artist? Some would say "yes!" and others would say "no!" I don't think so, if the work is so markedly different. You almost can't present these completely different works to your galleries. [...]

Art Transforms Lives

by Clint Watson on 3/17/2015 8:52:54 AM
10 Comments

So, how does FASO decide what markets to enter, what products to build, or what features to pursue? We ask ourselves: does it help people share art? Does it help enrich lives? Does it have the potential to take a powerful, emotion-inducing artwork and connect it with the right person? Previously, these were gut-level unconscious questions. They have always been in our DNA. The only change we've recently made is putting this guiding principle explicitly into words. [...]

What Is Your Art Worth And Where In The World Is It?

by Tom Shropshire on 3/13/2015 9:13:30 AM
9 Comments

One of my favorite things is to hear from a collector I’ve never met, who seeks me out to tell me they purchased one of my early works on the secondary market (Ebay, Estate sales, etc.), and to express how much it means to them. I’m always fascinated to hear where and how they found my painting. [...]

DIY: Stretching Your Own Canvas

by Carolyn Henderson on 3/9/2015 7:04:39 AM
3 Comments

As I mentioned in an earlier article, Building Your Own Stretcher Bar, any project worth doing takes longer than we expect it to, and generally includes a lot of steps that are in the “un-fun” category. Part of the DIY process is changing our mindset out of, “get this part done so I can do what I really want to do,” to, “It’s got to be done, so I may as well slow down and enjoy it more than I think I can.” [...]

Why You Should Be Different

by Mark Edward Adams on 3/2/2015 7:05:18 AM
16 Comments

I understand it might be tempting to create work similar to the work you see in galleries. But you should understand the art world is always changing. By the time you develop the skill set to replicate popular art, it may be out of style. The safer choice is to just make the work you enjoy. Then, do your best to promote your art and create a collector base. It should be your goal to create the next popular style, rather then follow the styles of the past. [...]

On many days, when I give myself permission to "play" and "wander" and let goals slide, opportunities arise and/or the day's work is more productive than if I had adhered rigidly to the Tyranny of the Task List. And often, on days where I strictly adhere to my task, dutifully advancing in baby steps toward my goals.....I tend to miss opportunities in the pursuit of checking off every item. [...]
