Good Enough: More Lessons From "the Move"

by Luann Udell on 1/30/2014 7:02:53 AM
14 Comments

Too, too often, waiting for doing it “the right way”, “the best way”, “the perfect way”, “the professional way”, results in just “not doing it at all.” Don’t let your desire for perfection hold you back. Do what you can. When you can do better, then do better. Yes, some things deserve your best. But you’d be surprised how many things simply need “pretty good” or even just “okay”. [...]

You - Yes, You - Can Have an Opinion

by Carolyn Henderson on 1/27/2014 7:23:02 AM
25 Comments

There’s nothing wrong at all about learning from others -- we all do. But as we learn, we gain, or should gain, confidence in our knowledge so that we can use what we know and move forward. Spending an entire lifetime sitting at the feet of a guru ensures that what we create, at best, will look like the Master’s work, and certainly not anything better. Believe me, you can do a lot better than that. [...]

What is the Story That You Tell With Your Art

by Jan Stommes on 1/25/2014 9:10:42 AM
36 Comments

When I look paintings online or in galleries I am surprised to see so many that I have no notion of the narrative that they are trying to tell. Of course that makes me wonder about my own work. Am I communicating to my viewers? Are they able to decipher my visual description? Have I been too obvious or too subtle? [...]

Celebrity Sightings

by Karen Cooper on 1/22/2014 7:04:53 AM

Okay, let's veer back to the Bruce wannabee, yeah, the Bruce Willis look-alike on the bus. On Gagarina. That's what happens when someone gets famous, I suppose. People like to borrow the appearance. Use the image. Trouble is, maybe the guy on the bus just shaved his head to look like Bruce, or maybe there was even a little gym work, to look like Bruce. Heck, maybe a smidgen of surgery. Hard to put on Mr. Willis's talent thought, isn't it? No surgery I've heard of for that. Yeah, shave your head, but you're still going to have a hard time filling the role of John McClane. [...]

Eye and Brain at War with Each Other

by Fredric McCormick on 1/21/2014 7:18:23 AM
5 Comments

As artists we should realize, too, that no matter how much we admire a particular artist and want to paint just the way they do, we never really will. We must reconcile ourselves, even as we try our best to achieve goals we've set, to the fact that we are going to be making a unique contribution to the world of art -- and this is precisely as it should be. I'm not saying not to copy others or to emulate their style -- far from it! If the work of So-and-so strikes you as the pinnacle of fine art, strive with all your heart to emulate their work, with this assurance: your paintings will never be a carbon copy of theirs. Yours will always be distinguishable because your eye-brain-hand configuration is not going to be the same as that of the artist you admire. Your work will always be unique, and yours alone. [...]

Stuck? Take a Close Look at Your Process

by Sue Martin on 1/17/2014 7:15:15 AM
8 Comments

If you're stuck in an unproductive place, or if you're looking for ways to change your art, maybe it's time to take a close look at your process. My continual focus on process is a carryover from my former role as a business consultant. If a business wants to change an outcome, they need to analyze and change their process in some way. The same is true for artists. [...]

Sipping From the Fire Hose

by Luann Udell on 1/16/2014 7:14:40 AM
21 Comments

When it seems like the whole world is rushing out to blog, or to spin, to post on Facebook, or to Tweet, or to pin on Pinterest, or whatever the newest social thing is, focus on one thing you can do today to let the world know you’re here. It will be enough. Recognize the power of being curious about the world. Let it serve you in making your art, not drive you. Let your desire for novelty inform you and inspire you -- in small doses. When you feel overwhelmed by your inadequacy, know that all you really have to do is put down the fire hose. A fire hose is a wonderful tool for putting out a house fire. But it’s not the best way to drink a glass of cool, clear water. [...]

Artistic Collaborations

by Madeline Dukes on 1/15/2014 7:15:21 AM

Adventure is a must for the painting process. It pushes the artist through and boosts him/her up for the next "big thing." Most importantly, I learned that artistic collaborations are not one-sided teaching or mentoring events. Art collaborations are about learning from each other and working as a team to achieve a goal.

What If The Art Market Never Recovers

by Mark Edward Adams on 1/14/2014 7:08:30 AM
85 Comments

While this may seem like a tragedy for the gallery world, it is actually an opportunity. It is a chance for the galleries to embrace the digital age and work with the artists as partners to promote the gallery and artists. If they work together, I believe a new business model will emerge. I do not know what it will look like in 10 years, but I am excited. We are currently experiencing a time of transition and while the art market as we have known it may never recover, a new one will lead the way. [...]
