Using Note Cards as a Marketing Tool

by Tommy Thompson on 10/22/2009 3:23:37 PM

There has been quite a bit written lately about content (how to effectively tweet - post sweet not bitter tweets), so I will focus on the quantity issue. [...]

Freedom and Flexibility

by Lori Woodward on 10/20/2009 10:46:48 AM

As an artist, I have a maximum of freedom and flexibility with my time. This is one of the things that makes being a professional artist a joy. At the same time, it creates a war within me. The daily struggle to choose the right thing to do for the advancement of my artwork is very real. [...]

The Dreamer

by Keith Bond on 10/12/2009 10:32:47 AM

I have learned that time spent dreaming is critical for my creativity. These moments are when my mind is free to wander and wonder. . . .

You then move forward towards the art and delight in the beauty of the piece, which holds you for some length as you let it communicate with you. You then decide to walk right up to the piece and examine its textures and you became thrilled at the surface quality of the work. The techniques thrill you; the textures and colors send your mind into a realm of wonder and discovery. [...]

When was the Last Time You Called a Collector....on the PHONE?

by Clint Watson on 10/2/2009 8:27:53 AM

Think about that. An artist who is considered to be pushing the edge of modern technology is telling you that the core of her non-art activities are phone calls, emails and meetings (all mediums that provide personal, one-on-one interactions with collectors)...I seem to recall saying ad nauseum that Art Marketing is Conversations.
