The Problems With Social Media

by Mark Edward Adams on 8/30/2013 7:23:12 AM

These high numbers can give you a sense of accomplishment. It is very easy to fall into the trap that has you seeking higher numbers in both social reach and likes. However, after a certain point, I had to stand back and look at the benefit of these numbers. [...]

The Best Medicine

by Luann Udell on 8/29/2013 10:09:58 AM
15 Comments

My point is, whether you continue to make your art the foundation of your income - or not - it’s still important to use your creativity. If you still love making your art, you need to keep making it. Whether you persevere to make it your vocation, or whether you relegate it back to avocation, or even hobby status, or whether you channel your creativity into something else altogether, is entirely up to you and your particular financial needs. But don’t turn your back on your creative spirit completely. For your heart’s sake and your brain’s, continue to make time to make your art visible in the world. [...]

Avoiding Email Subscription Overwhelm

by Lori Woodward on 8/28/2013 6:45:53 AM
20 Comments

The funny thing is - when I unsubscribe, I feel guilty about it, like I'm no longer supporting people I care about - but wouldn't those bloggers rather me not just hit the delete button every day when I see their email? That gives them a false assumption that I'm getting something from them. I can't help but get distracted by what's on my computer screen because I have no internal filter. I'm visual, and if I see it - it enters my mind and takes up space and energy. Ultimately, I must limit distractions that take me away from my important work... which is making my artwork. [...]

Notan #2 - Composing with Notan

by Sharon Griffes Tarr on 8/27/2013 8:03:15 AM
13 Comments

The simplicity of the notan concept helps students make clear, quick choices in a direct way that allows creativeness to become intuitive based. As an instructor, I've found, over the past several years, that my students who use this concept, no matter their skill level, more quickly adapt to the idea of value and color contrasts in their work. For this reason, I see significant leaps in their understanding and knowledge of value and color as they progress with skill building. The learning curve is greatly enhanced. [...]

The Countercultural Artist -- with or without the Tattoo

by Carolyn Henderson on 8/26/2013 7:12:51 AM

Being countercultural is an internal thing, which sometimes, but not always, shows up in external aspects -- like tattoos. It’s less important that you look like a free thinking, independent human being than that you live like one. [...]

NOTAN - What is it?

by Sharon Griffes Tarr on 8/24/2013 1:10:55 PM
20 Comments

Personally, I find that creating several notan's of a subject more quickly establishes a composition that has dynamic visual strength than a whole series of studies utilizing several values. I’ve been in the habit, for many years, of developing my compositions with thumbnails of 3 to 5 values. While this worked well, it never created the straightforward strength of design that I experience now with fewer choices. Notan forces me to quantify by putting more eggs in one basket, so to speak, thus establishing dominance. It’s a simple concept with a hugely powerful impact. [...]

Offsides

by Jack White on 8/22/2013 7:27:15 AM

I say this often, THINK. There is something in life called common sense. Webster’s says common sense is sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts. Perhaps this is why in 1776, Thomas Paine used these words as a title for the most famous pamphlet ever written. [...]

What is Plein Air Anyway?

by Keith Bond on 8/19/2013 7:32:18 AM
54 Comments

What does en plein air really mean? It is a French term. Depending upon which dictionary you use, the English translation is a variation of the following: “in the open air”, “outdoors”, “open air”, or “out in the open”. That sounds simple enough. Paintings done on location, outdoors, and in the open air are considered plein air paintings. [...]

Up until now, I've explained the problem, but now I want to look at how to resolve issues that get in the way of productivity. The first step in that process is to teach my brain to stop adding ideas and let my physical self get the work at hand, DONE. That means less time online because I'm so influenced by everyone else's thoughts and ideas. [...]
