Watercolor by the Window

Watercolor by the Window

Sitting the window frame at the end of the day.

Been thinking a lot about Art, Inc., a great book I’ve been reading about getting a real career as an artist going. As in a successful one. One of the book’s central premises is that you don’t need to be a starving artist. You just need to get up from behind that easel and start making it happen.

The book is great for learning how to find your voice as an artist, thinking about getting started with selling your work, and also contains lots of advice on how to present yourself to galleries.

Check it out!

In a related note, I’ve been toying around with Procreate on the iPad Pro for a while. So much fun with this app!

Smiles in the Tub

I don’t know why, but this picture just makes me smile. Innocent child bath time fun! The photo is a stock photo, treated with the Oil Painting setting in Topaz’s Simplify plug-in.

Running as Art

A short gallery of Impasto paintings celebrating the art of running. Whether watching the human body mid-run, or taking in the beauty of the natural surroundings, runningĀ is an art form worthy of much appreciation.
