There are a handful of older pieces that I absolutely love. I feel that all of my paintings that I sell are good. However, a couple of them have something about them that I really love.

So then, how do we change when we need to? Since artists are creative by nature, we love novelty and we can be a little contrary in getting our point across to others. Why not put that creativity and contrariness to work and break out of our own stuck state? [...]

Just How Much Work Does Fun Have to Be?

by Carolyn Henderson on 2/24/2014 7:14:10 AM
9 Comments

This means that, when weíre in the studio, creating and wanting to have fun while we do it, we do not have to be whipping ourselves into a frenzy of learning and progressing and striving: itís okay to mentally relax, dab if you will, and just enjoy where the current is taking us. After all, many people start painting or sculpting as a hobby, and the more they do it, the more they want to do it, and the more they want to do it, the more they want to do it better. It can be easy to forget that the whole project started out to be fun. And thatís where it can stay, for many people. [...]

How to Fix That "Something" That I'm Missing

by Doug Hoppes on 2/22/2014 9:57:41 AM
19 Comments

So, this is not a discussion of what is and is not art. Everybody has their own opinion and I may or may not agree with it. I have my own opinion and I will keep it to myself. I know what I like and I know what I donít. I know what I consider art and what isnít. [...]

Lesson Learned

by Donald Fox on 2/21/2014 7:10:37 AM
15 Comments

We like to think that because we have language and can explain processes, as well as demonstrate them, that we have advantage over other animals. Perhaps we do, but we also have internal processes that can complicate a task with excuses and rationalizations that act as barriers to successful completion. These may be different for each person, and how we learn to move beyond these barriers, or if we learn to move beyond them, may depend on more than being shown the proper way to do something. We may have to remove the barrier before we can even see how the process is done. [...]

The Art of Teaching Yourself

by Vianna Szabo on 2/19/2014 7:09:51 AM
14 Comments

Classrooms are important for us to hear new ideas and gain new perspectives but the real learning comes from within, by challenging ourselves and taking effective action to find new insight. I love painting because there is always something to learn. As a science major in college, I found that the method of question, test, and analyze could be applied to art. Painting and drawing are inspired problem solving and going to the easel with a purpose helps move my work forward. [...]

I've heard people say they write to clear their mind, a therapy kind of gig. Okay. But if you're writing a blog to attract people to you website, get more traffic for your art, and no one is reading, maybe it's time to pick up your game a bit. There are people out there who can help you, just do the google search. Think of it as working to develop another facet of your creativeness. [...]

An Organized Palette Leads to Intuitive Color Mixing

by Keith Bond on 2/17/2014 7:09:43 AM
13 Comments

Mixing through intuition doesnít mean that I resort to formulas, either. It merely means that I know by heart where the needed color is on the palette. There are many challenges to painting. Searching for the colors, because they arenít organized, simply adds unnecessarily to the challenges. [...]

Lessons From the Move: Reality Check

by Luann Udell on 2/13/2014 7:03:46 AM
17 Comments

We can keep doing business as usual. Or we can decide itís never too late to master a Facebook presence, or an email newsletter, or a Flickr/Pinterest/blog to showcase our latest work. Or a great website like FASO where we can manage and update our content ourselves, instead of waiting for ďthe web designerĒ to do it for us. And pray he isnít too busy this month to get to you. And that his rates donít go up. [...]

Can I Just Sit for a Bit, Please?

by Carolyn Henderson on 2/12/2014 7:15:24 AM
6 Comments

Within any creative endeavor upon which we embark, we quickly and shortly run into people telling us that we need to work harder, do better, apply ourselves more, or we will never get better, and theyíre right. It doesnít matter if youíre quilting, knitting, painting, cooking, gardening, playing the piano -- believe me, if it involves skill and practice, you can always improve. [...]

Growth and Change

by Donald Fox on 2/11/2014 6:59:26 AM
7 Comments

What an artist chooses has to come from a deep, inner reservoir in order for the choice to be effective over the long term. The ripples and eddies of immediate culture are often too superficial to make lasting impact. Whatever the artist feels, however, is important to honor. Real growth will come from that which is felt most strongly. [...]
