Inside Baseball

The purpose of this article is to persuade you on the importance of the potential client getting to spend a few minutes on the phone with the artist. If I owned an art gallery I would ask all of my artists to be willing to help by saying a few words to those interested in their work. On second thought...I do know a few artists I’d have to pass on, they have zero personalities. [...]

Dammit Spock! I’m a Doctor, Not an Artist!

by Carolyn Henderson on 6/26/2012 7:09:10 AM

While you may not be comfortable setting up your own blog site, or tweeting, or Linking, or posting and re-posting funny sayings – YET – (we’ve got plenty of fodder for future discussion here) don’t let good opportunities pass you by. When you’re offered something – like the ability to pass on updates about your business to a legitimate site – look into it closely, research the validity, and if it checks out, go for it. The more that you write about yourself and your art, and the more venues you take advantage of to post these writings, the more that your name – and your art – is floating around in cyberspace, where a lot of people travel.

Pressure Makes Diamonds

by Kevin Mizner on 6/22/2012 7:12:09 AM
13 Comments

But this is what I think: The same philosophy that worked when things were good should be the same philosophy you use when times are difficult. I know that flies in the face of most business models, but then again, a lot of businesses go under in bad times. What I mean is that when times were good, I tried to make the best painting I possibly could. When times are hard, I try to make the best painting I possibly can. Doing the old "paint what sells" may sound like reasonable advice, but it is fraught with peril. Trying to figure out what sells in hard times is like trying to shovel steam into a bucket. And if you alter what you do, change your style to chase a trend, you'll stray further and further from what was once successful. I believe you have to stay true to yourself. [...]

If we apply this advice to making art and to running an art business, we will see that many things can be done to enhance our chances of success while actually building on the dealt hand. Each of us is different. We have different experiences, different understanding, and different intellectual and creative impulses. Depending on our motivation, we can learn new and useful things for improving our artistic skills, our business skills, and our people skills. [...]

Cleaning my Desk

My first impulse is to tear out those pages. But then I stop, and set the notebook aside, too. I realize that sometimes, in order to go forward, it’s necessary to go backwards for awhile. It’s good to remember that hard times pass, that most failures are a prelude to a new path, a bright new direction. [...]

Failed at Computer Science; Succeeded at Life

by Carolyn Henderson on 6/19/2012 7:20:13 AM

And bit by bit I became less and less of an incompetent, to the point that my mother – who knows nothing about computers – is actually impressed by what seems to her to be a vast level of expertise. My point? If I can do it, mon ami/e, so can you. I encounter far too many artists who bemoan their ignorance of the computer, lamenting that they “just can’t do it.” [...]

The Biggest Mistake Of All

The biggest mistake is to fear failure so much that you do nothing. Remember, the tortoise only makes progress by sticking its neck out. Do the same and make more mistakes. Don’t think of them as failures. View them as results, as feedback, opportunities to learn and improve. [...]

Shaken, Not Stirred. Not Shy, But Reserved

by Carolyn Henderson on 6/12/2012 7:45:18 AM

You can do this, but in the same way you do everything, including the artwork you create, you will do it your own way. You probably won’t sound like a used car salesman (funny how we think they’re all the same, isn’t it?), but you will sound like you, communicating with and talking to another person. It won’t necessarily be easy, especially starting out, but then nothing is easy when we first start. With practice we improve, and with failure we finesse. [...]

Being a slave to your reference hinders creativity. Slavishly regurgitating what you see is not creating. It does not show me anything more than your ability to copy. I want to see your voice. I want to see your thoughts and ideas. I want to see your creativity. [...]
