If You Want to be an Artist, Understand Loneliness

by John P. Weiss on 4/30/2016 9:39:55 AM
47 Comments

Late nights of sustained creation. Early morning epiphanies. Private frustrations and repetitive rituals. Long stretches of weekends and canvas time where you are deep in the thick of it. Navigating the whispers of inspiration, personal expression and tortured execution. This is a big part of what it means to be an artist. [...]

The Age of the Workshop

Like any skill, and painting is a skill, it will diminish if we don't use it regularly. Painting is learning on the job and I don't think that ever stops. When we stop painting as much as we should we stop learning and progressing. [...]

Why Beauty Really Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

by John P. Weiss on 4/23/2016 8:57:18 AM
6 Comments

So take heart, fellow artists and struggling creatives. Remember to take the bad with the good in your artful journey. Try a few salvage operations now and then. And remember, beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. Even if you decide to throw that stinker of a painting away, it just might get reclaimed and recycled at your local transfer station. Because one person’s trash might be another person’s art. [...]

This year, in an effort to clean up my act, I've implemented a very simple system for keeping my head above water in this area. [...]

Behind the Biggest Question of Them All

by Luann Udell on 4/21/2016 9:25:21 AM

AND, one of our roles, as artists, is to advocate for the power that art has in our lives, over mass-produced tchotchkes and mass-produced reproductions. To stress why real art is important, especially with new collectors. To share how timeless it is, not only through our history, but is long-lasting appeal. [...]

This Is What Happens When You Become An Artist

by John P. Weiss on 4/16/2016 9:59:38 AM
42 Comments

Because in reality, we make our own “inner rings” by staying true to ourselves and our artistic sensibilities. In time, other craftsmen and artists will be drawn to our authenticity and sincerity. From there, true friendships blossom and a deep peace settles into our soul. And, dear reader, this is what happens when you become an artist. [...]

Thoughts on Drawing

by Donald Fox on 4/12/2016 10:18:41 AM
7 Comments

Drawing for me is full of possibility, and it has taken me on many journeys to known as well as surprising destinations. The discipline came first – and maybe that’s just me and my learning process although I’d strongly suggest others experiment with that too – and that freed my thinking which my hand has learned to follow.

Is it Necessary for Fine Artists to Learn the Basics?

by Judy Ballance on 4/11/2016 10:29:52 AM
35 Comments

Art yesterday, today and in the future is different now and will be diverse in the future. Art materials today aren’t the same as those artists had in the past, and future artists will also have new choices in art materials. The great artists will push the boundaries, the art they make will be innovative, art like we have never seen before. That work, because it is new and different will become part of history. They won’t be constrained by boundaries, but will learn the basics, do the work and follow their vision. [...]

Besides if they actually got what it was you wanted to express they might not connect with the piece, but if they get their own ideas about the work, connect with it on their own terms, they might want to buy it. They feel what they feel, you feel what you feel, they get the art and you get the the money. You both get it! Get it? [...]

The difference between painting and art is that art connects with a deeper sense of truth about who you are. When you see a piece of art, you instantly feel that you’ve known it forever. It connects you with a truth about yourself. That’s what I aim for with my art. [...]

Talent vs Learning: Artistic Talent is so Overrated

by Carole Rodrigue on 4/5/2016 10:06:40 AM
21 Comments

It's time to stop glorifying talent so much and start recognizing great artists for what they really are, people who dogged determination who didn't give up, people who had a passionate desire, people who showed up and learned, and kept learning. People who still keep learning. That's what makes great artists, not talent. Talent almost seems like a myth when you really think about it. [...]
