No Plan B

by Jack White on 10/31/2012 7:34:42 AM
28 Comments

The reason most artists don’t succeed is their failure to focus on what works. They burn through pages writing down goals only to cave at the first bad turn in the road. Look back over your successes, expand on them and you will find more. You can be adaptable within your plan, adjusting your sails to catch the best breezes. Burn the bridges of Plan B behind you and go for it. You can reach your goals. [...]

Bringing Old Paintings to Life

by Larisa Aukon on 10/30/2012 3:05:38 PM
1 Comment

Since my painting time was too chunky for a more serious work, I thought, it would be perfect to play a little bit with the smaller, unfinished plein air pieces. There is nothing to lose anyway! With this attitude, I had a great time and painted into life several paintings from my unfinished project pile. [...]

Remember, people aren’t investing in you, they are investing in themselves when they buy anything – whether a hot dog and soda or a fine work of art. People buy to fill a need. Identify both what and how your art satisfies collectors’ needs. [...]

The Process of Painting

by David M. Kessler on 10/25/2012 12:52:24 PM
2 Comments

I make a mess when painting because I love the process of creating, designing and painting. Everyone that sees my work can vicariously experience the process by which it was created. This keeps the work alive and animated even when complete and fosters a connection between the viewer, the artist, and the work. [...]

Shifting Patterns

by Donald Fox on 10/23/2012 2:33:56 PM
3 Comments

It is interesting to note the many painters that alter their technique as they experiment with various solutions to similar problems. These painters don’t simply repeat the same technique over and over. They remain inventive and engaged with the subject at hand rather than cranking out picture after picture according to the same formulaic approach. [...]

Idiots and Maniacs

So it is with vetting comments on our websites and blogs: while it is tempting to see a person posting a negative comment as an idiot/maniac who needs to be put down, squashed, boxed up, and sent to another planet, sometimes it is best to take a deep breath, still the rapid beating of our heart, take a sip of tea, and let a few minutes pass before we launch a keyboard attack.

Make time for your family, but also make a business plan, and if you need to, write it out. Make reasonable goals and figure out what you need to do to achieve them.

Those Who Know

by Jack White on 10/17/2012 7:07:26 AM
34 Comments

The questions I get from the artists I help are mostly the same; basic variations of “what can I do to improve my art” or “is my work good enough to sell?” Everyone is searching for improvement. This is where danger steps in. In desperation for help, artists fall for vanity galleries, scam ads and workshops put on by people who know little about marketing art. It’s important you look for “those who know” before you freely spend. [...]
