The Business of Making Art

Artist often forget that art is a business. Making great art is the first step in your artistic business development. Your business starts out as a one man show ,so you must show up each day and be at the top of your artistic game

If you are going to succeed and prosper in a business where so many others fail , making a good living with your talent is your goal then you must also develop your artist marking skills. Do you have a marketing plan? Are you using it daily? How much time do you set aside each week to increase your marketing skills?

No one know your business better than you do. You are the best person to market your art so now is the time to learn.

The year is almost 1/3 over, it is time to review your annual goals. Winners value the power of planning and persistence. Many artist are not natural planners and organizers. These are skills that can be developed over time. The devil is in the details so get those details down and start today to plan. What has been successful for you over the past three months? Can you build on this? A larger body of work? More collectors? Decide what will be your path for the next three months. What will you do to reach those goals? What is your three month marketing plan? Plan, Organize,and create the best art you can.
