Sorry, Wrong Number

In the end, I believe it’s about getting our message through, without misdials and misdirected calls. The world needs your art, and you are the only person who can do what you do. If your voice is lost, there is no one who can replace it. Our belief that what we do, matters, is the most vital part of that very important message. [...]

Blank Brains

Here is how I see it. Those times when the planets are aligned and the gods are smiling down at me, when the work flows from my fingers, is a time of great energy. Energy received and spent. Those down times, those times I used to fret over, and worry, that is when my creative juices are refilling, when my muse is resting. It's not a bad thing those down times, in fact I suspect the down times help to prevent me from suffering burn out. A forced, out of my control, R&R. [...]

You Learn a Lot by Glancing Through Your Junk Pile

by Carolyn Henderson on 12/28/2015 7:52:02 AM

But finally -- don’t be afraid of scams. If you know they exist, and you maintain a healthy, and rudimentary unwillingness to believe everything you are told, then your instinct will continue to be honed, and will kick in more and more when you receive an email or phone call, get a circular in the mail, or even, turn on the evening news.

Artist vs. Viewer

by Brienne Brown on 12/23/2015 7:54:40 AM
13 Comments

On the other hand, I find enjoyment when other people appreciate my art. I think most artists do. I love it when someone tells me that my painting reminds them of someone or some place they had seen before. It brings back memories for them and they have connected and related to my art work. I think this is a great thing to aspire for. Your art will not connect with everyone, but I think it is great when it does. [...]

Are You a Serious Fine Artist? What is Your Label?

by Judy Ballance on 12/22/2015 6:43:00 AM
34 Comments

To be an artist takes expendable time, money and energy. You give up all free time to work on learning and practicing your art, with little hope of being reimbursed. Only by working a lot and working hard will your art improve. There is nothing wrong with being a hobby artist, it is simply a choice. If you are a ‘hobbyist,’ and want to achieve ‘serious’ status, all you have to do is work more. [...]

Certainly there is no guarantee that the produced painting will work. That is taken for granted, for even with carefully planned work there is no guarantee, but the success rate is likely much higher than with spontaneous work. [...]

Why Freedom is the Answer

by John P. Weiss on 12/18/2015 8:02:17 AM
17 Comments

Henry David Thoreau wrote: “I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear, nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary.” Dear reader, don’t live a life of quiet desperation or resignation. Summon the courage and forethought, and then embrace freedom. Your Walden awaits you. [...]

Why Your 20 Minute Sketch is Better

by John P. Weiss on 12/12/2015 10:54:29 AM
25 Comments

So here’s the deal. Don’t get discouraged because you’re not painting like Anders Zorn. Pursue excellence, but keep your internal cynic in check. Think about the purpose of each piece, and then tap your inner poetry. Try to paint with the freedom of your 20 minute sketches. In this way, you’ll release your creative voice. [...]

So could be no one but me, my wife and someone else will read even this blog. Maybe no one will read this blog. I feel a bit weird even saying that no one may read this blog, especially if no one does read this blog which means I'm talking to myself. But then I have been talking (interviewing) myself for years, so why change now, at least I know what I said. [...]

Painting Styles from Representational to Abstraction

by Gayle Faucette Wisbon on 12/4/2015 7:55:12 AM
9 Comments

How do you define a painting style? This is something I have thought about for a while. Not that it is all that important to the painting process, but I guess I like knowing where my work fits in the spectrum from representational to non-representational. There is a lot of information about this on the internet and I'm finding it very complicated, but interesting. [...]
