A Happy FASO Customer

by Clint Watson on 12/29/2009 9:27:32 AM
Comment on this

I just retired in May from teaching high school art/drama for 34 years. In mid November I decided to get a website up with FASO, sent out my first newsletter, and sold 2 paintings the first week. I received rave reviews on my website! The FASO competition was an awesome experience. The artwork was incredible in November—560 entries. I was so excited to have my painting, “Mr. Blues” selected as Finalist-Outstanding Watercolor by FAV Jury! I love everything about FASO!...Tuva Stephens [...]

The Hunger, The Void, The Logos and The Ultimate Gifts

by Clint Watson on 12/24/2009 7:13:17 AM
154 Comments

Art affects people deeply. I've seen grown men weep in front of paintings and grown women brought to sheer joy from art. Perhaps people are so deeply affected because they are connecting with the logos via the hand of the artist. Don't ever minimize the importance of your art, your gift, to the rest of the world. You see, art really does change the world. [...]

Share Your Gift, Share Your Art, Share Your Images

by Clint Watson on 12/16/2009 3:35:25 PM
30 Comments

The funny thing is, this sometimes leads artists to complain about other people who are actually promoting them for free by "stealing" their images and displaying them on other websites. Ironically, artists also complain that Google isn't indexing/showing enough of their images and they want Google to index more of their images. You can't have it both ways people, sharing is sharing.

What Can I Share?

by Clint Watson on 12/14/2009 8:05:19 AM

We share links. We share stories. We share blog posts. We share photographs. We share ideas. We share tweets. We share thoughts with each other. We want to share images of artworks with each other (at least when the artist doesn't use those annoying right-click disablers to attempt to stop us from promoting their artwork for them) And, sometimes, we even string shared series of these thoughts, stories, links and ideas together into what we call conversations.

It's true that sales beget sales. Psychologically, we tend to put value on items that we see other people purchase. If a collector falls in love with one of your artworks, and sees that others have invested in your career by buying, it is more likely that they'll get off the fence and make the purchase [...]
