Understanding the Why Informs the How

by Keith Bond on 11/13/2013 7:34:10 AM
12 Comments

You are faced with many decisions as you approach a painting. First is what to paint. Second, and probably most important, why do you want to paint it?

Each of these principles is interdependent and a change in one will affect each of the others. [...]

Embracing The Bigger Vision

by Lori Woodward on 11/6/2013 7:27:29 AM
28 Comments

Although your vision might be very different from mine, I hope that you are not afraid to push yourself beyond your current comfort zone.

If it were easy, art wouldn't be worth much. [...]
