Why taking a vacation can make you a better artist.
Saying goodbye to vacations doesn't have to be a side effect for starting your art business. Vacations are often viewed as a luxury, but what if instead of putting us behind in our work they actually make us better?
My husband has been running his own business for over 20 years, and I started my art business almost 3 years ago. We totally understand how hard it is to fit traveling into an already full schedule, and to be honest, we have sacrificed many travel opportunities for the sake of work leaving us envious of other's vacations.
How To Get Past A Negative Critique | Beverly Gurganus Fine Art.
Having another artist critique your work can be scary causing many to shy away from the opportunity to receive feedback, but critiques (good or bad) are beneficial to your career.
Podcasts are another one of my must haves while working in the studio. Today, I thought I would share with you my top three art podcast.
A few weeks ago, I shared with you how I make my "Perfect" cup of coffee. Coffee is just as important to have in my studio as my art supplies. Too extreme...not if you are as much of a coffee lover as me. Wait! What? You missed that post...no worries, you can still read How to make the perfect cup of coffee.
My Children of the King collection is going to the Chesapeake Central Library!
I have been working since the beginning of this year creating new paintings to add to my Twirly Dresses collection for my April solo show at the Chesapeake Central Library, and I've been having so much fun developing other ways to incorporate the crown in my work.
I'm so excited to introduce my new custom paintings "A Mother's Crown" just in time for Mother's Day!
If you haven't learned by now, crowns have become my thing, and I am always dreaming up ideas on how to paint them. I have shared in previous blog post about how my Children of the King: Twirly Dresses was birthed with the intentions to send a message of value to young girls about their value. I'm not talking about the prideful kind of value, but the value they have to their heavenly father. We live in a world full of expectations, labels, and comparisons. Twirly Dresses is a colorful reminder to embrace who we were created to be, and when you are happy, you can't help but to dance and twirl.
