Forum Friday: Discussions from the BrushBuzz art forum 6-22-12

This article points to recent questions asked on the BrushBuzz Art Forum.

Some recent questions / discussions from the BrushBuzz Art Forum:

1.) With art marketing in mind -- what have you gained from online social networking? (Read more about this question by clicking here)

Artist Jackie Jackson offered an example of her experience, stating, "I'm pretty sure that Clyde Butcher, also a Florida photographer, is well known to everyone here. He has (I think) two Florida studios/galleries neither of which are anywhere near here. This morning, Andy posted his work, as he does every morning, on Twitter. Clyde Butcher saw it and his response, that all his followers, saw was 'Beautiful". That is, in effect, a personal endorsement. How else could that have been achieved without social media?" Artist Janet Glatz added, "I genuinely feel that my name recognition has grown exponentially and that when I attend shows there will be people who recognize me."

2.) Do you have any regrets when you think about where you are as an artist today? (Read more about this question by clicking here)

Artist Gayle Faucette Wisbon responded to this question, stating, "My biggest regret is not having produced as much art as I could have. I've allowed myself to get distracted by so many other things. Hopefully, I've reached a point where I'm more aware of time passing and not waste so much of it.". Artist Marianne Hornbuckle offered her two cents, stating, "I found it useful not to blame anyone other than myself when things didn't work out as hoped (gallery red flags ignored, settling for less than I should have, not seeking instruction when I could have), but it's been a great ride, I'm closer than before to where I want to go, and still excited about the surprises around the corner.". 

3.) How often do you draw? (Read more about this question by clicking here)

Artist Nancy WinLove Smith replied to this question, stating, "I draw everyday....there is a place in my imagination where all things are created with passion, purpose and balance. I can draw for hours and sometimes I am not even aware of the image that is about to unfold. I often look at the finished picture and wonder how it came to is an awesome experience, like nothing else.". Artist Lucille Dweck shared her thoughts, stating, "I'm drawing almost everyday. I draw mostly from life if I can... or using photos. I love it.".
