A Phone Booth in the Woods

by John P. Weiss on 11/28/2015 9:52:14 AM
29 Comments

We donít have to stumble upon a miraculous phone booth in the woods to reach out to the ones we love. We just have to reach out. Through our art, our words, our actions, our forgiveness and our love. In this season of Thanksgiving and holiday cheer, take a moment to find your own phone booth in the woods. And when it rings, do yourself a favor and have the courage to pick up the receiver. [...]

6 Ways For Fine Artists To See Values

by Judy Ballance on 11/24/2015 7:14:51 AM
22 Comments

It is important to do value studies, especially if you have difficulty seeing values and shapes. Value gives representational work form and depth, and helps leads the eye around the painting in non-representational or abstract paintings. If your painting looks flat, the values are probably wrong. [...]

The Best Way to Leverage Facebook to Grow Art Sales

by Dave Geada on 11/18/2015 7:54:34 AM

Collectors donít just buy art, they buy the story behind the art and the artistís story. So tell that story and tell it authentically. Feeling inspired? Share that. Feeling frustrated? Share that, too. The more you reveal about yourself and your creative process, the more likely youíll keep collectors engaged. [...]

This is the Real Life of an Artist

by Joan Brady on 11/17/2015 7:29:24 AM
13 Comments

I have come to realize that the real life of an artist is not based on how many paintings you produce in a week, but living your authentic life and bringing that joy to the easel (or whatever your mode of expression). When that happens, the contentment and energy you feel will cause you to overflow with inspiration. [...]

So You Want to be a Better Painter? Make More Paintings

by David M. Kessler on 11/12/2015 7:10:26 AM
17 Comments

Workshop students ask me "How can I be a better painter?" My advice to them is two-fold: 1. Learn the basics: the fundamentals of design, composition and color; 2. Make more paintings. You cannot ever be a good painter if you don't learn the basics. [...]

The Story We Tell Ourselves

by Mark Edward Adams on 11/9/2015 7:55:02 AM
13 Comments

I believe artists must create a personal story about their art. What made you want to create art and how will you determine the success of your work? I think the sooner we can figure out our own story then we can begin to enjoy the process. All the galleries and attention may fade away with time, but the story we tell ourselves will outlast all the good and bad times. [...]

How Your Creative Spirit Will Save You

by John P. Weiss on 11/7/2015 9:17:34 AM

I believe the greatest gift is our creative spirit. She dances with us, even in the throws of Alzheimerís and fragility of old age. She will accompany us beyond the indignities of infirmity, to the ultimate mysteries of living and dying. It is our creative spirit, that gentle lifelong companion, that will save us in the end.

Lessons From the Gym: The Dangers of Playing It Safe

by Luann Udell on 11/5/2015 6:55:47 AM

If youíve been playing it safe lately, push yourself a little. Try something new. Approach a new gallery. Start that new series youíve been dreaming about. Check out that new show. Rewrite that tired old artist statement. (I visited an art show recently. I just about died of boredom after reading too many statements in such a short time.) [...]

Why Is She Painting Like That (Part 2)

by Heidi Harner on 11/4/2015 7:21:39 AM
14 Comments

I like to think of abstract art like instrumental music. It doesn't need lyrics (details) to tell you what it's about. It is powerful in its own right. I'm not saying realism is bad and abstract is better. I'm just pointing out that people love those realistic paintings because the essence of that painting is strong abstract design. [...]
