When Rejection Is Not About Your Art

by Mark Edward Adams on 2/29/2016 5:32:52 AM
31 Comments

In summary, you should understand that rejection is part of the life as an artist. Yet all rejection is not about the quality of your work. Most of the time there are other factors at work. The best strategy to deal with it all is to ignore most critiques and instead focus your time and energy of the people that appreciate and buy your art. [...]

There’s no reason why you can’t shoot for the moon. Face your fears, pull off that mask and walk through some spider webs. Reprogram your thinking, expect some setbacks, but keep tackling those problems head on. And learn to be more optimistic. [...]

Somewhere in the Middle Part 2: Tai Chi, Lessons From the Gym, and the Circle of Life

by Luann Udell on 2/25/2016 7:20:38 AM
12 Comments

Wherever we are in the process, in our journey, we can look forward, to the sides, and back. We can see where we are, and where we want to go next. If we open our eyes, and our hearts, and take a look around, we’ll see we’re never completely abandoned. We are always somewhere in the middle, with hope, with faith, with tiny, daily miracles, to get us through. [...]

The Challenge

by Donald Fox on 2/23/2016 7:24:33 AM

Artists develop a feel for what they do. Only some of that can be explained while doing it or deconstructed afterward. A student has to keep doing until knowledge, skill, insight, and understanding converge within a successful piece of art. [...]

While it all sounds like an inspirational art plaque, it’s not something we have to write down to remind ourselves to do. Your goals -- the deep ones -- are so intrinsically woven into your character that they are a part of you. Do not let someone else define you. [...]

That by perhaps changing the mood, the environment, and numerous other aspects of what they truly see and paint what they want to see and how they feel, that they just might make us feel the same way about that teapot as the artist does, or at the very least see it with their own memories or emotions. And isn't that the artist's job - to get the viewer to feel something? [...]

Once Art Makes a Home in Your Heart, There is No Turning Back

Critique This, You...

by Donald Fox on 2/9/2016 7:30:26 AM
6 Comments

Art is not simply about self-expression. The artist isn’t simply a channel for creative spirit. A violin will not play itself any more than a brush will paint a picture. These are instruments that must be utilized by the artist, and though the artist might be described as the instrument of creative expression, he or she is the source of that expression rather than the mute instrument waiting to be brought to life.

Your Dream is so Deep You Don't Have to Write it Down (Or Share It)

by Carolyn Henderson on 2/8/2016 7:43:02 AM
25 Comments

Your true goals -- the ones that simply won’t go away no matter how much others, or you yourself, try to talk yourself out of them -- are ones you don’t need to write down on paper because they are written down on your heart. One way or another, you will reach them -- but because the process of getting there changes you, don’t be surprised that your dreams change as well. [...]

How Art Can Rescue Wayward Souls

by John P. Weiss on 2/6/2016 9:05:34 AM

If art can rescue wayward souls, then it can certainly rescue the rest of us. So don’t compromise on this one. Make time for your art. Share it with others. Teach if you can. In this way, we enrich ourselves and lift the emotional lives of others. And that, my creative friends, is a noble endeavor. [...]
