Outer Reaches

by Donald Fox on 8/31/2015 7:49:29 AM
4 Comments

Many people do and have done remarkable things and faced remarkable odds in the name of art, but we also see art grow and change and develop in ways both predictable and unpredictable generation after generation. At the heart of this growth and change is a sense of curiosity, awe, and wonder about life, consciousness, and what they mean if anything at all beyond the meanings we assign to them based on our experience.

But also remember that when we make the art we’ve carried in our heart, we are at our very best. Let it bring you back to yourself, so you have the strength, the endurance, the courage to carry on a little longer. The world needs your art. Your heart needs your art.

10 Dumb Ideas I Read about in a Grow-Your-Business Article

by Carolyn Henderson on 8/24/2015 8:47:01 AM
11 Comments

When we believe, literally, those fanciful stories, and try to follow the lessons that we are given, we find ourselves disappointed, because our chickens do not lay golden eggs (they’re sort of a dirty tan color) and when we spread the cloth on the table and command, “Fill the plates and bowls with succulent fare!” we wind up having to pull out cold cereal for dinner.

Art Marketing: Surviving a Period of No Sales

by Brian Sherwin on 8/19/2015 7:46:21 AM
16 Comments

You will face periods of no sales at some point as a business-minded artist. It WILL happen. I don't think we should automatically assume it is time for the artist to close her studio door for the last time when it happens -- just as we should not automatically assume it is due to the work itself.

Being Introspective

by Heather Arenas on 8/18/2015 7:54:34 AM
3 Comments

When I come to my own pieces in order, I'm surprised by them because I didn't know they were next in the list. This has an amazing effect because I instantly see how mine differ from some of the pieces that I've chosen to 'Like' in the list. This is great for people like me who find it difficult to critique our own work. [...]

Art Shows, Awards and Magazines

by Mark Edward Adams on 8/17/2015 8:14:35 AM

Every time something new happened I would seek out ways to promote it. It would start a chain reaction and lead to something new. After several years of repeating the process you end up with a solid track record of accomplishments. The worst thing you can do after winning an award or receiving recognition is to lean back and watch. Now is the time to take action and make it work for your art career. [...]

Because online is the place to be, and so many artists set up websites to promote their work, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and social media presence (Facebook, Twitter, Google-Plus, Instagram) are two areas that many of us find ourselves involved in, but just as many of us don’t feel confident that we’re doing it right.

What Would Artists Paint If...

by Roberta Murray on 8/7/2015 9:16:25 AM
36 Comments

To do something different, be it in painting or life itself, will always meet with resistance and criticism. Most people naturally gravitate to sameness, and following the masses will always be a safer road that forging on alone. But being true to yourself and following your soul, as an artist, may take you on unfamiliar, lonely roads. Go there anyway for the discoveries you will make will only help you to understand yourself. [...]
