How to Write Artwork Descriptions in the Third Person

by Dave Geada on 8/16/2017 9:49:16 AM
4 Comments

One thing to note is that this framework is a guide and not meant to be rigidly followed. It’s important to include all the content elements (i.e. your inspiration, how you were pushing boundaries, how your artwork makes you feel), but the ordering of these elements is completely up to you. [...]

So, next time you're busy in the studio on a painting and you think, "If this comes out well, I can post it on Facebook", think about how that fact alone is contributing to your effort and artistic growth... because, after all... you can exhibit your work online as soon as the painting is completed.

What about Art Festivals?

by Carolyn Henderson on 8/14/2017 9:40:09 AM
6 Comments

There is no secret path to success. There are no surefire tips. There is no method which we can copy to get the results that another artist did, because we do not share their background, their thought process, their opportunities, challenges, and disadvantages. While we can learn from their story, the major message never changes: the one constant involves hard work, perseverance, determination, grit, and independence. [...]

What Does Inspiration Feel Like?

by Carolyn Henderson on 8/4/2017 9:46:26 AM
7 Comments

Inspiration. It’s what makes the difference between a response of, “Hmmmph,” and “WOW,” and while different people react to a work in individual ways, there is a reality to inspiration that cannot be denied. When the creator of the work has invested time, thought, skill, feeling, and soul into a piece, the result comes across in a manner not duplicated when the creator was in a hurry, unskilled, uninvolved, passionless, and just out to get the thing made to turn a buck.
