Seven Ways to Improve Your Artfulness

by John P. Weiss on 1/30/2016 11:27:11 AM
26 Comments

I believe that embracing an artful life is one of the most rewarding ways to live. There is great beauty in the world. Be it nature, art, literature, film, music, crafts or whatever quickens your creative heart and soul. But learning to build more artfulness in your life requires some focus and intentionality. As Robert Henri put it, “If you are to make great art, it will be because you have become a deep thinker.” [...]

But Isn't Goal Setting the Harbinger of Success?

by Carolyn Henderson on 1/25/2016 8:05:21 AM
18 Comments

1) I want to sell my work. Yes, that’s insanely simple, and yes, you’ll probably need to build upon it with concrete ideas like, “Try to get a presence in the town next to me,” or, “Check out various magazines and see if there’s a way to get my name there,” or, “Determine what demographic of people I’m trying to reach.” But don’t waste time with whiteboards and charts and statements of intention and resolutions of your commitment to excellence.

With that, the professor became quite serious and said, “Johann Sebastian Bach’s music wasn’t broadly appreciated until after his death, 80 years later. When another composer, Mendelssohn, played it all over Germany. Same with Thoreau. His Walden Pond wasn’t embraced by the public until after his death. So, you just keep painting. You never know when or how your art will impact others.” [...]

Relentless

by Jack White on 1/21/2016 7:52:55 AM

I fully believe that being relentless was the key to my success. When you discover what works then go after sales with a vengeance. I am not exceptional in any field, I’m a man filled with weakness. My feet are made of clay. I believe if I can find a way to make it, anyone can. [...]

Rightful Action

by Donald Fox on 1/12/2016 7:47:38 AM
4 Comments

Perspective is a curious state of mind. One can be so involved with a personal discomfort that beauty or truth or possibility are ignored or are never even recognized. Illusion and delusion are partners in crime. They conspire against the real. The real struggles to contain both, but in truth reality is but another illusion. Nothing is permanent but change, so says the cliché, and in the end (which never comes, for every end is only another beginning) even the permanent is illusory. [...]

Whether we call it a Mission Statement, a Manifesto, a Creed, a Proclamation, a Declaration, or a Statement of Belief, this matter of writing down our beliefs and/or goals has become a mania with us, no doubt because our entire culture is infected with psychological/corporate-speak, influencing us in the way we do and say things.

Embracing simplicity and minimalism will absolutely improve your art. Whittling away the excess, simplifying your schedule and politely saying no to commitments will free you.
