Art, Auld Lang Syne, and 2008

by Clint Watson on 12/31/2008 7:40:52 AM
2 Comments

Today's Post is by Clint Watson,  founder of FineArtViews. Follow Clint on Twitter. Auld lang syne literally means "old long since"—but a more idiomatic English translation would be something like "long long ago", "days of long ago", "in olden days", or even "once upon a time". "For old time's sake" or "to the good old days" may be modern-day expressions, in common use as a toast, that capture the spirit of "for auld lang syne." (Source: Wikipedia) Each New Year's Eve, we toast the happy moments of the past year, we look forward to even better days in the new year, and, hopefully, [...]

It's a Wonderful Exhibit

by Clint Watson on 12/23/2008 1:50:14 PM

For this year's Christmas message, we decided to try something a little different and to share our holiday feelings through a short piece of fiction.  We apologize in advance to the writers of It's a Wonderful Life. . . . George the painter toiled away at his easel again.   He had a few days off from his "day job" during the holidays and was determined to get a few pieces of artwork done. “Don’t know why I bother,” he thought to himself, “it’s not like anyone really appreciates my art anyway.” No!, he tried to push the negative thoughts out of his mind, [...]

Operating a Hedge Clipper Without a License and Other Foolish Things

by Deber Klein on 12/19/2008 9:28:28 AM
3 Comments

Today's Post is by artist, Deber Klein, Regular contributing writer for FineArtViews.  Find out how you can be a guest author. Meet Bill, my husband. Imagine him as he is right now, trimming my enormous topiaries into a gumdrop shape. More or less, anyway. Imagine that he is standing on the top rung of our aluminum ladder operating a long handled hedge clipper. It's a little frightening. No doubt about it, my husband Bill is a manly man but he's not Superman. By the way, I should tell you that my hero is tottering unsteadily on that ladder [...]

Artists: Lead Your Collector Clan

by Clint Watson on 12/17/2008 9:40:29 AM

Today's Post is by Clint Watson,  founder of FineArtViews. Follow Clint on Twitter. Understanding the overwhelming desire of most people to belong to a group, a tribe . . . . a clan,  moves the artists from the idea of simply "marketing" to the more powerful juggernaut of leading.  And for those who "get it," the results can be astonishing. Looking at the Powerful Desire to Belong Most people make bad investment decisions.  People are inherently emotional -- not logical.  In fact, people who study the psychology of investing know it's true:  people become emotionally attached to [...]

Tell the Whole Story

Today's guest author is artist, Daniel Keys.  This article has been edited and published with the author's permission. Find out how you can become a guest author. Have you ever missed an opportunity to make a sale, because of a potential buyer's fickleness? Have you ever experienced the feeling of disappointment that comes when a collector [even though they're drawn to your particular style of work] begins to point out what they find strange, or different, in a negative way, and talk themselves right out of investing in one of your pieces? I call these particular art mongers [...]

Art: A Part of Who We Are

Today's Post is by artist, Deber Klein, Regular contributing writer for FineArtViews.  Find out how you can be a guest author. The Young Artists of Happy Hearts Kindergarten The basement of the old church was cool and damp, and smelled of concrete mingled with fresh baked sugar cookies. Every step of my little Saddle Oxford shoes could be heard echoing down the narrow cement stairway at 9:00 each weekday morning, and then heard again while going back up with the noonday sun directly overhead. The only windows that I can remember were high and small, so it was dark and sometimes [...]

Twin Pillars of Art Marketing Success

by Clint Watson on 12/10/2008 9:12:48 AM

Today's Post is by Clint Watson,  founder of FineArtViews. Follow Clint on Twitter. Successful art marketing requires that you develop two fundamental character traits:  Discipline and Self-Control. Discipline and self-control separate the proverbial "men" from the "boys."   Creative Types and Discipline Look, I absolutely love what I do . . . even before my company took off, I loved to write software and "play" with computers.  In fact, our current most popular product, I originally created as a side project, for fun.  These days, however, when some people I know see what I do, they [...]

Time Management for Right Brainers

by Lori Woodward Simons on 12/9/2008 1:05:41 PM
4 Comments

Today's Post is by Lori Woodward Simons, Regular contributing writer for FineArtViews.  Find out how you can be a guest author. I could write a 10 chapter book on time management for artists, and I'm well qualified to do so -- because, I don't have a natural bent toward self-discipline, but I've had victory over this beast from time to time. Fortunately, I have deadlines and commitments, and that's a blessing. Some folks are born with such a passion to do their work that they need no prodding. While I don't begrudge them that attribute, it's one that I don't [...]

Art Versus the Stock Market

by Connie Tom on 12/8/2008 1:05:31 PM

Today's guest author is artist, Connie Tom.  This article has been edited and published with the author's permission. Find out how you can become a guest author. Yes, the stock market has been frightening this year, but did you hear about the new record set by the Coeur d' Alene Art Auction in July 2008 of $37 Million, eclipsing last year's sales by $2 million? It seems that in this economy, people are turning to art as an investment. As an artist myself, and as a collector of other artists' work, I am an avid reader of art magazines. Two [...]

Interview of Rising Star, Kathy Anderson

by Lori Woodward Simons on 12/4/2008 4:00:51 PM
1 Comment

Today's Post is by Lori Woodward Simons, Regular contributing writer for FineArtViews.  Find out how you can be a guest author. As promised in an earlier blog post, here is a question and answer session with artist Kathy Anderson. I've known Kathy for 5 years. She is a fellow Putney Painter (an invitational small group which meets and works under the direction of Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik). While Kathy's work is outstanding and gaining national recognition, her career hasn't always been this lucrative. However, she has diligently applied herself through periods of praise as well as discouragement. Ultimately, her hard work has handsomely paid off.  What follows [...]

Is Your Art Making a Difference?

by Clint Watson on 12/2/2008 11:33:22 AM

Today's Post is by Clint Watson,  founder of FineArtViews. Follow Clint on Twitter. Why are you an artist? How do you decide what to create? Do you absolutely love what you do? Back in my gallery days, I had to wonder about some artists who were constantly asking me for advice about what to paint.  "What's hot? . . . What does 'the market' want? . . . . What's selling?," they would ask. I, frankly, never understood why an artist would ask such questions.  The answer that I always gave was maddeningly simple, "Paint [...]
