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

Fun Products for the Arts

Product of the Month Hey watercolor painters, did you know that you can permanently fix your watercolor paintings?


This may not be overly important if you frame them under glass, but if you are like me you may want to mount them on a canvas or a wood panel. If you need a good fixative that is non-aerosal and made with all natural ingredients, try SpectraFix. 

I use it in a pump bottle with a couple of light coats on the painting. No odor, no mess - it just works. You can use it on watercolor paintings, pastel, graphite, charcoal, colored pencils or nearly anything else. Give it a try and see how you like it. Pump bottle of Spectra-Fix
