My art life and my 'normal' life spill over into each other a lot. Things that occur in my 'normal life' often provide surprising insights into my artist life. In fact, it happened just this week... What "bad saddle" am I using when it comes to getting my art out into the world? [...]

How to Get a Great High

by Clint Watson on 9/23/2010 12:49:14 PM
5 Comments

No this post isn't about what you think it is. But it is related to "that" kind of high. I was thinking about the things I wrote in The Maker's High and in The Tyranny of the Task List. This line of thinking led me to a startling realization: I realized that we all spend our lives trying to "get a great high." [...]

The Art of Non-Conformity by Chris Guillebeau - a Book Review

by Clint Watson on 9/20/2010 7:13:04 PM
12 Comments

The Art of Non-Conformity is a new book by fellow blogger, Chris Guillebeau. And, refreshingly, it's of the actual dead-tree variety...If you're not already living the life you want, then this book is for you. If you are already living the life you want, then it's still for you: Grab a copy of the book, read it to reaffirm your blessings, glean new insights into how you can be even more effective, and then pass it on to someone else who's not there yet.

Deborah Angilletta - another artist experiencing the maker's high, writes: "When I am not painting I am thinking of painting. When I am falling asleep I am thinking of painting. When I am driving my car I pass scenes that I want to sketch for paintings. When I have chores that need to be done I am resentful that they keep me from painting". - Deborah Angilletta Awesome Deborah.  Welcome to the Hunger. [...]

Thinking Like A Realist

by Shawn Sullivan on 9/17/2010 9:08:36 AM
37 Comments

As realist painters, it is important to hold onto the qualities that make our way of seeing the world unique. It is important to go to museums and galleries and see great paintings firsthand. Stand before a work of art and dive into the space of a painting. Breathe the air that the artist breathed. Feel the warmth of the light as it washes through the painting. [...]

The Tyranny of the Task List

by Clint Watson on 9/14/2010 8:08:23 AM
19 Comments

To-do lists are constraints. They are chains. Now, constraints are not always a bad thing. Sometimes we need constraints to achieve positive results. If you've got a plane to catch, it's probably not the best time to start a new work of art and try to get into the "zone". Constraints are needed. But we need to remember that constraints are, well, constraining. And that's not a good thing in creative work. [...]

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email through my website from a woman named Michelle Campbell. I immediately recognized her email as a scam. I then posted her email on my personal blog. Several artists commented on my blog that they had received the same email and were getting ready to make a transaction. If they had gone through with it, they could have lost thousands of dollars.
