Teaching 101

21 Comments

As I said, it was a good class, and I’m happy I took it. But I couldn’t help thinking how much anguish I could have avoided, and how much more time I could have put into learning the actual technique, if only I hadn’t had to also come up with a design suitable for a medium I wasn’t familiar with!

Make sure you don’t rush into having an art exhibit before you are ready. Sometimes opportunities presented themselves to me and I didn’t want to pass them up. It would have been wiser for me to wait because I hadn’t matured enough as an artist. [...]

As far as I can tell, there is one Warren Buffet, one Bill Gates, and one Steve Martin the comedian, on the planet, and yet too many people who want to collect art limit themselves by feeling like they have to be like these people, buying for the reasons that they buy, and seeking out the same type of work that they call good.

Doing It Over

by Donald Fox on 7/23/2014 7:21:36 AM
19 Comments

Continuous practice in order to perfect is not questioned. More than a duty or expectation, the practice is done as part of the job, and for many practitioners, doing that practice and doing the job are one and the same. The performer is always performing, as it were. Such a performer, then, would naturally start again in order to improve a performance. Dedicated artists do this continually because the practice has become the performance. [...]

You Already Know What You Need To Do

by John P. Weiss on 7/22/2014 7:14:42 AM
6 Comments

So here's the deal - we are all in different seasons of our lives. Some of you are raising little ones and others are empty nesters. Maybe shift work is making it really hard for you to get more exercise. Whatever the scenario, a lot of us love to play the "some day" game. Don't do it. Take a good hard look at your schedule and figure out where you want to make changes. Get up earlier, learn to say no to people (nicely), shut off the television and close the liquor cabinet. You don't have to retire or finish raising the kids to chip away at your dreams, goals and passions. Remember, you already know what you need to do. Now, go do it! [...]

I can? You want to see my art in your gallery? Really?

by Doug Hoppes on 7/21/2014 7:22:34 AM
18 Comments

So, when I’m checking out galleries, I’m always nervous. I sit outside of their door. I take a deep breath. I remember that there are people who like my work and purchased a number of paintings from me. I remember that they are just like me… doing a job and working at a business. I remember that I love the paintings that I create. I take that deep breath… then walk in their door. [...]
