A Different Path

by Brian Kliewer on 8/29/2012 9:22:50 AM
21 Comments

Anyway... my approach and wish for my website are at odds with the 'norm' that everyone seems to be following, I know. I'm not interested in the least in 'traffic' as many are. What I have always wanted to get out of the Internet is a chance to connect...to have conversations...to meet people. A connecting of minds, without any pretense or third party involvement. This challenge became the game. [...]

Of course you have something to talk about! You create art, don't you? You put it places, sell it to people, send it to shows, have a reason behind why you painted those two particular horses or sculpted a dog eating oranges. So let other people know about it all. [...]

Making the Choice

by Donald Fox on 8/27/2012 7:33:36 AM
14 Comments

Artists are told many things about the way the world is, about who they are, and how worthy their work may or may not be. It takes a lot of courage sometimes to continue in the face of what seems like never-ending negativity. But, we have that ultimate freedom. We are free to choose what we think and how we respond to those “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,” which may neither be arrows nor outrageous. We have the power to choose wisely. [...]

It Takes 3 Days and 30 Years

by Roseann Munger on 8/24/2012 7:29:02 AM
20 Comments

I am a "speedy" type. It is an ideal day for me in the studio if I fill the entire canvas with paint, judge it to be close to my goals, with finishing touches applied the next day - adding maybe a dot or two several days later when I have a fresh eye. Other people make spectacular decisions (and paintings) by taking the time to ponder and consider and "edge into" their decisions and their creations. Neither methodology is right or wrong - just different. [...]

End of the Trail

Don’t cling on when your physical skills go away. Just to say, I’m an artist, is not enough - you need to be able to maintain an acceptable level. As Kenny Rogers sings, you have to learn when to hold ‘em, when to fold ‘em and then when to walk away. [...]

For painters that choose to write about their work, it can be an interesting challenge to describe the painting in words. A literal description would simply be telling the reader what is in the painting. The trick is to show the reader with language that appeals to the senses and with figurative language that appeals to the imagination. [...]

Practice Your Art

by Keith Bond on 8/20/2012 7:25:43 AM
21 Comments

Neither musicians nor athletes perform without a lot of practice. In most cases more time is spent practicing than performing. Yet, many visual artists think that once they reach the professional level, they no longer need practice. Many have the false idea that they can perform each time they enter their studio to create.

Every Painting Has a Story

by M. Camille Day on 8/17/2012 7:49:56 AM
8 Comments

If you are an artist, you know what I'm talking about. If you're not but can identify, you also have a gift...the gift of seeing, feeling. I believe that the gifts we receive should also be dispersed to others in every way we can. That's how we can tell the story and honor the blessing of the "one thing". [...]

Don't Be A Hater

by Mark Edward Adams on 8/16/2012 3:19:46 PM
3 Comments

We can spend our whole lives hating the state of art in America, modern art, represenational art, galleries, and everything else we deem problematic in the art world. But does this help anyone? Are our opinions on these matters greater than teaching others about our world and how we create our art? [...]
