My first time building and stretching a canvas from scratch

My first time building and stretching a canvas from scratch

Full disclosure, I have stretched a canvas before, on an old frame I had lying around, but this time, I'm starting from scratch, with custom stretcher bars. This beast is 4'x6', and will take up a sizable portion of space on my wall. I can't want to see what happens to the canvas next. You can guarantee, it'll be featured here quite often, for awhile.

How to get over the fear of making art

Conquering fear in my business has been pretty easy for me. I don't take that for granted, because I know I have a gift for knocking back the scary moments. However, I'm not always so courageous when it comes to my art. I have way more fear surrounding the work I put on canvas, than the work I do on video, audio, or anywhere else.

I've been thinking a lot about which strategies will help me grown my business, and it's not an easy conversation to have, because it ultimately leads to me realizing I'm not always putting my energy in the right places. In today's vlog, I make a few of these revelations, but I'm feeling very good about all of them. First, I realized that my new book didn't help me get into the local events that I was hoping to be a part of. So, I have to examine why that might have been the case. Second, when talking with a friend...

Your Art Will Not Save You!

Your Art Will Not Save You!

The other day, in a moment of brilliance, I decided to film a short video about some  things I see from artist on Instagram, and other platforms. There is an alarming amount of creative people who go out of their way to post really beautiful pictures of their art, which is great, but that is the extent of the value provided to the viewer.  By all means, post up your beautiful pictures of your art, but what are you going to do next? You may be an incredibly talented artist, but that won't be your saving grace. You may be...
