Variety and Experimentation: It’s What Art, and Life, Are All About

by Carolyn Henderson on 5/30/2016 8:53:51 AM
9 Comments

In retrospect, what you produce from your experimentation may not be a failure of the magnitude you thought it would be, because in the process of going about things a different way, you have made a small step in changing the way you think: when you go back to the medium and style in which you are comfortable, you won’t be doing so as the exact same person.

Originality and Fairness

by Cheryl Magellen on 5/25/2016 10:03:42 AM
10 Comments

I feel more confident knowing I have records that backup my claims if ever a dispute were to arise. Still, it is the artist’s responsibility to use their better judgment and think carefully about what they are putting out into the world, especially in this age of the internet. If you are ever, even a bit uncertain, do the research and/or stick to references you have created solely on your own by taking your own photos or painting from life. Eliminate the worry so you can get back to the painting. [...]

If you’re exhibiting, put your smartphone away. You’re paying a lot of money for the booth space. Have a short story for each of your pieces you’re showing. Engage with the people looking at your work and ask them questions. Be genuinely curious about others, and you’ll find your nervousness is diminished. Stop using introversion as an excuse and learn to be engaging in a genuine way. [...]
