Without a Net

by Mark Brockman on 3/31/2016 6:32:33 AM
10 Comments

Starting a painting without a preliminary drawing is scary, you have to have a strong will, a hearty disposition, stamina and a great tolerance to pain. No, actually you just need to be willing to try it. To be willing to fail. But then even with a preliminary drawing failure is standing right at our shoulder, isn't it? [...]

Healing Power of Art Part 2

by Brienne Brown on 3/30/2016 6:34:34 AM

When an artist creates something, it can become a unique expression about the subject and experiences of the artist. Then, when a viewer is touched by that piece of art, they bring their own unique experiences when viewing the painting and can be touched by something through how the artist created it. [...]

Artfulness is everywhere, improving our lives and injecting more beauty into our midst. The trick is to slow down and adopt a bit of my father-in-law’s quiet living. Because when we do, a creative awakening will be there to greet you. [...]

Yes or No -- Am I An Artist?

by Carolyn Henderson on 3/21/2016 6:42:07 AM
27 Comments

Interestingly, when we answer this question, we know instinctively that the answer involves money, to wit, we are to respond with the activity that provides us with a regular paycheck. If we are retired, we say, “I’m retired”; if we are unable to work, we reply, “I’m disabled,” as if the many tasks we perform throughout the day are meaningless unless accompanied by remuneration. In other words, we are what we do for pay. [...]

Dear Artist - Know Your Worth

by Linda Fabry on 3/18/2016 6:24:17 AM
23 Comments

So thank you for your service. Thank you for being brave and letting your silver-lined, triple-glazed, watercolored light shine. Keep seeing the beauty. Keep on balancing and harmonizing our world. Keep inspiring the rhythm and leading us to love with your song. And the next time someone asks you “what do you do?” Go ahead and tell them proudly, “I am an Artist”, as you flip your cape back over your shoulder and feel that badge of honor beating deep within your chest.

Eat Your Vegetables

by Mark Brockman on 3/17/2016 6:30:04 AM

What happens is we may have an area or object in a painting that we are unsure of, maybe it even scares use to attempt to paint that object, so we hold off, waiting for the right moment. The right moment though is not at or near the end of the painting process. Those scary things need to be tackled early on. [...]

Decide on One Center of Interest

by Brienne Brown on 3/16/2016 6:44:55 AM
8 Comments

There are many more stories to tell. I can change my color palette for different moods. I can change the design and choose a different center of interest. I can zoom in closer or zoom out further to get different stories. The point is that it is important to decide before you start painting what it is you want to emphasize. What will be your one center of interest? [...]

9 Things to Look for in a Website Host

Many artists still don’t have a website, email or social media. Older artists, in particular, resist the changes computers are making in the art world. They haven’t recognized that computers are here to stay and are the way we communicate with other artists, buyers, dealers and how we enter most art shows. [...]

What to do When the Workshop's Over: Becoming Your Own Teacher

by Kathleen Dunphy on 3/14/2016 6:58:55 AM
8 Comments

Although I had all the time in the world to paint and no need to schlep my supplies to school on the train and deal with all the hassles of assignments and deadlines, I had no one to turn to with questions, no fellow classmate to gripe to, no instructor recommending this technique or that theory to help solve my problems. Life as a "real" artist wasn't exactly what I had imagined. [...]

Traditions are meant to be carried on, and it’s my turn to ink those artful, fatherly letters to the next generation. So that the joy of creativity is carried on. And so that he’ll know, even many years from now when my old letters are found in the attic, that he was loved dearly. [...]

The Challenge of Maintaining Focus on Your Subject While Interacting With Interested Spectators

by Jim Glover on 3/11/2016 6:28:42 AM
8 Comments

I think Tim Deibler, an amazing Colorado artist and friend, once told me that 98% of the people who stop to look are in absolute awe of what we are doing! If we can help these inquirers and admirers bridge the seeming distance between them and our "brush magic" by "inviting them in," they'll see that we aren't paint zombies, but ordinary people with a special passion for communicating our vision in color on our canvases. And maybe they'll take one home with them! [...]
