Myths That Hold Us Back

by Carolyn Henderson on 5/2/2016 8:11:21 AM

The reason it's important to dispel myths -- not only those we face as artists but in all areas of our lives -- is because we will look for results based upon our belief in the truth of what we're told. If what we're told is a myth, then there's no reason to waste time chasing it, expecting success from an area, or a method, that is not designed to give it. [...]

If You Want to be an Artist, Understand Loneliness

by John P. Weiss on 4/30/2016 9:39:55 AM

Late nights of sustained creation. Early morning epiphanies. Private frustrations and repetitive rituals. Long stretches of weekends and canvas time where you are deep in the thick of it.

Talent vs Learning: Artistic Talent is so Overrated

by Carole Rodrigue on 4/5/2016 10:06:40 AM

It's time to stop glorifying talent so much and start recognizing great artists for what they really are, people who dogged determination who didn't give up, people who had a passionate desire, people who showed up and learned, and kept learning.

Rightful Action

by Donald Fox on 1/12/2016 7:47:38 AM

Illusion and delusion are partners in crime. They conspire against the real. The real struggles to contain both, but in truth reality is but another illusion. Nothing is permanent but change, so says the cliché, and in the end (which never comes, for every end is only another beginning) even the permanent is illusory. [...]
