The Art of Being a Failed Artist

Originally published in The Liberty Beacon, a powerful online news site.    When I was twelve, I knew I was a painter, same as I knew I was a girl. Actually, I knew it better than that because what you know as a being, inside where it counts, is truth at its highest level. You might say it’s all the truth there is, despite the apparency of land, sky, houses, trees and the IRS. However, in the physical universe (your competition), things have a way of taking your basic purpose and banging it around, along with you, till it turns into...

Interview with Kathy Diane Poitras

Kathy and I knew each other many years ago in New York City and lost touch. But, leave it to Facebook to bring people together again and now we are fast becoming awfully good friends. She has been a great help to me as an artist, always supportive and offering great tips on selling art, especially right here on Shopify. Equally, she is a fabulous artist. I very much enjoy her whimsical, colorful and fanciful paintings with such carefully thought-out design and yet, they still remain light and playful.  She surely  has her own unique style that she creates from...

Interview with artist Anne Fewell

Here is my interview with her: When did you start painting and...

Visit his site - and find out all...

Materials I use

I thought I would write my first blog here on the basics of how I get away cheap on materials. Maybe you other artists will find this useful. A few months ago, I got very inspired to paint large paintings - 30" by 40" and such. But canvases, especially "gallery-wrapped" ones which don't need a frame are unbelievably expensive, at least for me. I just priced a 30" by 40" canvas at $45.81!  On sale! So I discovered masonite. I buy a 4' by 8' piece of it  at Lowe's and have someone cut it to the sizes I want. Then...
