What is Creativity?

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. Scott Adams 

If you don't know who Scott Adam is I am sure you are familiar with his work.He is  an American cartoonist, creator of the Dilbert comic strip

I used to think Dilbert was living my life that was in the way back machine and before I decided to move my life to next level and work at my art full time.

Snacks in my office/studio you bet and coffee all the time. All nigher yep and I love them. So no more Dilbert life he's on his own and the studio cats and I are laughing ourselves fuzzy with happiness.

quotes to make you think

"Go not to the object; let the object come to you," (Henry David


 Thoreau) or "There is no art without contemplation," 


I am always thinking and reading. I listen to audio books while  

paint to get just a little more out of my day. There is never 

enough time to do all. I find ways so  that I can stretch my 

day where I can.

I let my watercolors dry between glaze coats while I'm on 

the computer.

What do you do to add just a little more value to your day?To 

make the object come to you?

The Art Sprit

I am always amazed when I wake up in the morning and go to daily painters web site or daily paint works on how many artist had the same idea of what to paint that day but in how differently each handle their idea. I think there are many ways to paint an orange as there are oranges and artist combined.

So do not paint what you have seen and think should be your inspiration but be yourself.

Oh, Bad Delilah

The simple fact is that people will become loyal, trusting potential buyers of you and your work when they know they are dealing with a human, especially one with flaws like them.
When you show more of who you are, you are morphing into the product. The product is not just your work and your skills. You are the full package. And that is what people invest in – their time and their money.
I know this but I don't share. I need to do more of this; if you are an artist like me you also need to do this. So today I am making a change a commitment to share more. To show more of the process and the frustration of being a one woman show. The creator,the marketer ,the book keeper,and the self motivator. 

Have a bright and sunny day and paddle your way into a great year of painting
