Your Job is in the Studio
If you don’t make art, you have nothing to market
stole borrowed this saying from Alyson Stanfield at http://www.artbizblog.com/2014/02/studio-job.html.
In this blog Alyson talks about how the artist’s job is in the studio making art and that; although, we do have to take care of the business end, our primary work is to make art so we have something to market. Makes sense?
Have you ever been so overwhelmed with all the other work surrounding an art career that must be attended? Is it any wonder that art making gets pushed aside or worse – comes to a grinding halt while we worry about posting to various accounts?
I only post once a week but if I haven’t completed any art in that week I will have no image to add to my post. A block of text is so boring!
It is only Monday morning, usually I don’t tackle posts until Thursday. However, when inspiration hits and I think I have a blog post then it is a good idea to record my thoughts when they are fresh.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some art to create!
This painting is lovely but it didn’t photograph well. The reason, I believe, is that I didn’t under-paint with a dark enough color so that the camera picks up the lightness.
The next image was under-painted with a very dark green and although there isn’t much dark showing the result is that the camera recorded the painting much better.
