Have you ever wondered how artist get their artwork on products in stores such as stationary, wallpaper, fabrics, and home decor? It’s done through a licensing contract.
Making art that sells can be a difficult code to crack. Today I'm going to share with you how I've evolved as an artist, and the strategic decisions I've made when painting to build a successful full time art career with art that not only sells, but is also true to who I am.
Looking to attend a new Art Festival? I have summed up all my favorite shows, festivals, and fairs to help both vendors and shoppers find exactly what they are looking for when searching for a new show.
Recently, I have started to create art that can be printed by you! This kind of art is usually referred to as printables or instant downloads.
I want you to have the best possible experience printing out your designs so I have put together this in-depth guide to printing printables to help troubleshoot any problems that may arise.
It's been a while since I have posted anything around here lately. It may seem as though I have been neglecting my art, but that couldn't be further from the truth. What I have been neglecting is posting, and here's why:
The wait is over! I finally dove into painting a waterscape collection. Similar to my Bird Tree and Owl Tree, I'm once again composing a collection that fits together like a puzzle. This one will consist of sixteen separately painted pieces that can be mixed and matched.
I've been very busy painting lately! This time it's been dogs. I have painted six new dog portraits in various humorous scenarios, and have documented my creative process to share with all of you!
It looks like I may have an artist in training on my hands! I brought my daughter Abby with me to the 2016 Spring Show for Sugarloaf Mountain Works in Oaks, PA this past weekend, and discovered just how crafty this kid could be. I'm a proud Momma!
It's been a while since I've posted what's happening around these parts and feel it's time for an update! I know inquiring minds want to see what's new. There has been a lot of activity, but I gotta admit the most interesting piece of art completed around here lately has been a colorful thank you card my daughter made for a customer of mine.
I want to stress the word completed! I have had no troubles starting a rather long and ambitious to-due list, and I have also successfully accomplished the start of several projects on this list... but I have yet to finish one.
