Pareto's Principle

by Jack White on 10/31/2013 7:30:33 AM
13 Comments

It works the same in art. 80 percent of our sales come from 20 percent of our dealers. At outdoor art shows, the 80/20 Rule applies in full force. Only a few of the people coming in your booth are buyers, the rest are just lookers. It’s up to you to weed out those willing to spend money from the tire kickers. [...]

Heartfelt Words About Art Marketing

by Barb Dougherty on 10/30/2013 7:33:10 AM

Why has the tradition of patronage not grown? The reason is the failure on the part of the artist to understand that their future will come from those who are willing to support them as they move forward with their dreams. [...]

Low Tech Auction

by Keith Bond on 10/28/2013 7:44:17 AM
18 Comments

They don’t sell for huge sums of money, but I am making enough on them that it does make economic sense to sell them in this manner when I have one that I want to sell. The price does vary a bit from painting to painting, but if I were to sell 3 or 4 a week at the average price they are going for, it would be sizeable amount at the end of the year. [...]

FASO Featured Artists: Artist Leslie DuPratt

by Carrie Turner on 10/28/2013 6:29:41 AM
Comment on this

Artist Leslie DuPratt places society and human behavior under the scope. Her paintings -- which thrive on satire -- explore the multifaceted lives of modern women. She notes that she often uses herself as a model for the adult female characters in her paintings -- describing said choice as a step beyond the self-portraits that artists typically do as an exercise.

Not Fitting Into The Box

by Mark Edward Adams on 10/24/2013 7:41:56 AM
4 Comments

So in my case I learned that not fitting within a certain genre was more difficult in the beginning, but actually helped me stand out. Within the last 2 years, I have noticed my style has begun to find an audience. The magazines have started to take notice and I even started to get into to some juried shows. I feel I am finally carving out a little place in the art world for my style. I realized that not fitting into the box was actually a blessing in disguise. [...]

Of Fear and Faith

The things we fear are often generated from imagination, not from reality, and since we have no way to verify how realistic those fears are, ask yourself what's the percentage chance they are likely to come true. [...]

You, Tu, Can Make a YouTube Video

by Carolyn Henderson on 10/21/2013 7:18:22 AM
10 Comments

So here is point number 1: if you’re going to make a YouTube video, then put out a quality product. While it doesn’t have to look like a Peter Jackson film, it needs to be more than a screen shot of whatever it is that you’re talking about, with flashing red arrows as you, in the background, figure out what you are going to say.

Two Way Street

by Donald Fox on 10/19/2013 9:15:40 AM

The challenge for artists is always to present their work to their audience in the most effective ways possible while remaining true to their personal ideals as creative individuals. It can be a balancing act, but by first developing a strong vision and then remaining true to that vision the communication of that vision will take care of itself. [...]

Eight Exercises Guaranteed to Stimulate Your Creativity

by Pamela K. Beer on 10/18/2013 7:11:52 AM
7 Comments

Write down your view of how your creativity should be as if it were that way today and review in your mind a visual representation to begin each day. I learned this in a recent seminar at the Pacific Institute. I highly recommend visualizing your future the way it should be. Warning: This will make your subconscious uncomfortable enough to move you in the right direction, so hold onto your seat. [...]

Cul-de-sac Career

Dreams do come true for those of us who dare to daydream. I know it sounds like platitudes, but these statements are true. I hope to hear from you in a few months saying you decided to no longer accept defeat and have elected to be successful. You found your way out of the cul-de-sac onto the Interstate, zipping along with the top down and the wind blowing in your hair. [...]

Hoops

Think about this: if the power goes off in the middle of the night, can you walk from your bedroom to the kitchen without running into something? And if you have a guest at your house that night the power goes off, would they be able to make it to the kitchen unscathed? I will venture a "yes" to the first part, and a "no" to the second. Knowing something like the back of your hand plays a big part in the art of navigation. [...]

Role of Student vs. Instructor

by Keith Bond on 10/14/2013 8:15:23 AM
20 Comments

An instructor can give example after example, theory after theory ‘til he’s blue in the face. He can encourage, correct, praise, and push the student. He can walk the student step by step through the process while holding the student’s hand. But none of this will lead to the student learning anything until the student takes responsibility to learn. That doesn’t take responsibility away from the teacher, though. It takes both for learning to occur. [...]
