I saw this post that said:
“the bible is the only book whose author is always present when one reads it.”
When i read great poetry, and speak it aloud as one should do;
You are speaking in the breath and soul of the writer.
It takes time to build an Art career.
One of the keys to a successful Art career is good management of your time, we only have so much time we can work so make it efficient and deliberate.
Use your time efficiently, especially if you want to be successful in a shorter time than most.
Every Artist today can take the opportunity to do something remarkable.
Imagine today like never before in history, I can watch Artists talk about and make their Art from all over the world.
What an amazing marketing tool.
I can watch Kelly in Australia talk to me about her marvellous abstract paintings…
She understood what Art market she wanted to be in.
The Art market is diverse, find your niche and build there, know what you want.
She persevered for years to build her reputation.
Get attention and build a reputation of trust, honesty and integrity.
She protected herself against failure.
She was careful…
If we as Artists can make the sales process a good and memorable experience for the stranger and we can then give them excellent after sales service, we will be half way towards our next sale to our new friend and future collector.
Imagine the advantage we would gain if we were to do this…
I talked this morning on the video about the different types of people that we will encounter when we go to sell our Art. Often we are going to get more rejections and knock backs than we will get sales.
Unfortunately most Artists remember vividly the rejections…
