Missed Opportunity?

by Donald Fox on 12/31/2013 7:09:38 AM
9 Comments

Artists are professionals. In presenting work to the public it is important to remember this. All of the marketing spin one can muster will not improve the quality of the work. What is important is whether the customer connects with the work; therefore, the focus of the presentation is on the work and not on whatever fluff the artist may try to promote in order to sell the work. Simplicity, honesty, and credibility are important traits for artists vis-à-vis their public. Let the work speak in its own behalf. [...]

Who Are YOU to Critique Art?

by Carolyn Henderson on 12/30/2013 7:19:31 AM
37 Comments

When you feel tempted to stop yourself by saying, “Who am I to pass judgment on a work of art?” ask yourself, “Who are the people, after all, who pass all this judgment on art? Who are the critics? Who are the magazine editors? Who composes the jurying panel of the shows and art societies?” Most of the time, you don’t know. And yet you accept that what they say is right, more right, say, than what you would think. [...]

FASO Featured Artists: Artist Joe Velázquez

by Carrie Turner on 12/19/2013 11:18:57 AM
Comment on this

Artist Joe Velázquez is deeply fascinated by the emergence of our nation. Joe's paintings explore the history of Mountain Men, Voyageurs and the northern Native American cultures. His dedication to visual story telling is marked by a passion for historical accuracy. However, Joe is quick to note that his paintings are more than the telling of a story. His paintings serve as a reminder of the fragility of the world and its people -- reminders of how quickly a way of life can change. [...]

Letting Go: Of Fear and Self-Doubt

by Luann Udell on 12/19/2013 7:43:10 AM
9 Comments

I know as I get tired late in the evening, my usual optimism and good cheer dissipate. I get cranky and sad, unable to process anything except in a dreary, hopeless way. As I get older, I wake up more and more at night to that “brain frenzy”. It’s not a good thing for creativity. Doubting our abilities, our gifts, our opportunities, shrinks us down to quivering, mouse-sized morsels of self-defeat and despair. So how do we let go of fear and self-doubt when it’s so strongly connected to physical and neurological factors beyond our control? [...]

Don't Use Facebook To Sell Art

by Mark Edward Adams on 12/17/2013 7:11:19 AM
13 Comments

I have sold work in the thousands of dollars, site unseen, that began from Facebook. But in all of these sales, at some point, the relationship went beyond Facebook and transitioned into people I viewed as real life friends. And it often takes months, if not years, for people to develop enough confort to buy something from you. It went far beyond the initial "like" on the page. Facebook is a starting point for a sale, not the end. [...]

The Nebulously Indefinable “World of Art”

by Carolyn Henderson on 12/16/2013 7:25:30 AM
24 Comments

But you do have something quite important that you do control -- your money -- and it is the one thing about you that matters to the Arrogant Artists at the top of the nebulously indefinable world of art. It is your purchases of their art, their books, their DVDs, their workshops, their magazines, their product lines, that keep them, monetarily, thriving. [...]

Procrastination - There’s a joke in there, somewhere

by Doug Hoppes on 12/14/2013 9:39:06 AM

Well, I could start off this posting by saying that I was going to write a post about procrastination… but, never got around to it. It’s an old one, but I like old corny jokes (especially really bad puns). However, this is about my art work and things that I have to work through. [...]

The Conversation

by Mark Brockman on 12/13/2013 7:15:23 AM
15 Comments

So often in my many years of teaching adults to paint, I see the student unwilling or unable (lack of experience perhaps) to have a conversation with their painting. They do not listen to what the painting is telling them - what it needs, what it wants, what will work. Often the painting knows what the artist does not. [...]

Artist Michael Orwick states that he has always been inspired by the ability of landscapes to tell stories. Michael's landscape paintings -- specifically his Zenscapes series -- explore the pure beauty of nature. His landscape paintings are strengthened by his eye for negative space, reflections, and various aspects of minimalism found in nature. [...]

Art in Life

by Donald Fox on 12/11/2013 7:11:09 AM
13 Comments

It has been said that art imitates life. Actually, I think that art comments on life, but it is very different from life. For thousands of years artists have used art as a vehicle for observation, expression, commentary, investigation, musing, propagandizing, philosophizing, and proselytizing. Art is sometimes spontaneously expressed and sometimes carefully planned, but even when spontaneous there is structure and boundaries within which it occurs. [...]

The Myth and Reality of Real Artists

by Elizabeth Lane on 12/10/2013 7:41:27 AM

I have never, for one second, divided "true" artists who support themselves from their art and "true" artists who work at something else to pay the bills and devote themselves to creating art. I do believe the distinction should die along with the myths. [...]

The Better Way

by Keith Bond on 12/9/2013 7:32:30 AM
34 Comments

I believe that we artists have a gift. I won’t go into the talent vs. discipline/hard work argument here (I believe it is a combination of both). And I’ll save that for another article. But suffice it to say that since I believe a good portion of it is an innate, God-given gift or talent, I also believe that there is a stewardship associated with that gift. We will be held accountable one day for how we used the gift of art. [...]

FASO Featured Artists: Artist Yuni Ko

by Carrie Turner on 12/8/2013 6:51:02 PM
Comment on this

Artist Yuni Ko notes that she has been focused on a series called The Flow. Concerning the series, she has said, "The Flow is a series of mixed media pieces. I express my feelings using gold ,silver and copper paints. This choice of color is very symbolic in that it is considered good luck in Asian culture, especially the gold." She adds, "These color choices also represent my father's over 30 years in the metal business and his research lab influences -- which inspired me to put all these metallic colors into my flow paintings."
