Art Business, West Wind, Daily Painting by Jo-Ann Sanborn

I've added a new box to the blog, linking you to artists who blog about the business of art. Art is like any other business and an area where most artists welcome help. Top of the field is Alyson Stanfield, who writes and produces podcasts about the business of art on the Art Biz Blog. Every Thursday she posts a question that make us think about where we fit into the BIG picture of life. It's fascinating to read the different positions of artists from all over the world. Don't be wary of blogger/artists Barny Davey in Art Print Issues even if you're not a print artist. His thoughtful blog is full of helpful information about becoming a better art business person. Harriete Estel Berman in Ask Harriete has developed a series of Professional Guidelines for artists that you'll find helpful. In addition, she welcomes and answers questions about the art business, as does Alyson. As an artist are you the best business person you can be or do you have more to learn? Check out these art business bloggers by clicking on the link on the right side of the blog, about half way down!

Today's painting is still influenced by the wind! Who would have thought it could be so windy here on Marco Island from a storm so far away? By the end of the day yesterday the winds had subsided and the sun peaked out. We're still watching Ike and hoping that the targeted folks in Texas have prepared well and will find shelter from the storm.

Thank you, Jo-Ann. I'm delighted to be in such esteemed company. And I'm surprised you are getting the winds from the hurricane. It's always windy here in the Rocky Mountain foothills, but I don't think I can blame it on the 'cane.

JoAnn Sanborn said...

You're certainly one of the esteem-est! You do have some spectacular views out there in Rocky land but it'll be cold soon! Here, there's some interest here in getting an Art Marketing workshop together. Hoorah!

Thank you for adding that box, Joann! We all do need to pay attention to the business of art. You're kind to share! Good luck getting through the rest of the Hurricane season!

It's not the most fun part, but we have to learn to do it! We're lucky that some people are willing to help us along!
