My Three Favorite Reference Image Libraries

by Moshe Mikanovsky on 1/27/2011 10:03:23 AM
44 Comments

I need a constant source for images of varied subjects. Sometimes I can take these photographs myself, especially nowadays that my smart phone has a decent size built-in camera, available at any time. But in many cases, I just don’t have the right picture for what I need to paint. Whether it's exotic animals, plants from different continents, or buildings found in far off countries, there is no limit to subject matter that is just not right at our fingertips, yet we can still feed our creative juices.

How to be Truly Successful as an Artist

by Brian Sherwin on 1/22/2011 9:46:20 AM
38 Comments

Most artists will never receive the spotlight they deserve-- but an artist can easily leave his or her own mark within the global art community, so to speak. Leave fame and fortune up to chance-- focus on creating art and gaining exposure for your art today. Take as many steps as you need to realize that you can truly be a successful artist beyond the bar that has been placed above you. [...]

21st Century Art Marketing Strategies

by Lori Woodward on 1/19/2011 10:32:08 AM
47 Comments

The ways in which art is marketed are rapidly changing. Ten years ago, I wrote a chapter on artist websites for Calvin Goodman, author of The Art Marketing Handbook for the 21st Century. Calvin has been a consultant to galleries and artists for over 40 years, but he didn't have the desire or knowledge to get involved in counseling artists about web design, so he asked me to author that chapter for his book. Ironically, I interviewed a guy who was co-owner of a gallery and had just created some websites for artists. That guy was Clint Watson. [...]

FineArtViews Interview: Alan Bamberger, Art Appraiser, Consultant, and Author

by Brian Sherwin on 1/15/2011 1:40:52 PM
15 Comments

An art dealer once told me, "No art sells itself." And he's right, but that doesn't mean you hawk it like timeshares or used cars. Perhaps the most important key to "selling" art is giving people reasons to care. With all the other stuff out there for people to care about, why should they care about your art? Why do you care about your art? That's a great place to start. [...]

What Exactly Makes Art...Good?

by Heather Craft on 1/14/2011 9:18:43 AM
32 Comments

What makes art good? It's the conscious act of boldly putting brush to canvas. It's those unintended "mistakes" that turn out to be game changers that send your piece in a whole new exciting direction. It's never being afraid to experiment. It's accepting failure as nothing more than an opportunity to create something you never thought you could create. It's speaking to masses in your own unique way. It's never stopping until your creation is everything you envisioned it to be. [...]

Listen!

by Deber Klein on 1/11/2011 9:22:49 AM

Though it may not be intentional, it is imperative we artists be aware of our tendency to get caught up in the distractions of the moment and forget to listen. As we develop our artistry, we also must develop our ability to listen; to drop everything and concentrate on something other than our own brain on its never-ending creative binge. [...]
