Do you remember when Kelli and I did the Landfill Art Project and painted hubcaps? This one was done by Robin, a friend of ours in Orlando. I came across her video about the work and thought you might like to see it.

Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!

Artists Making Money

ARTISTS MAKING MONEY! Doesn't that sound good?! That's the title of our newest workshop presented in two half day increments at Red Swan Paint and Art in Ocala, FL. This class is designed for the advanced student artist (or hobbyist) who is doing high quality work and getting ready to sell. The basic business information in this workshop will include helping the artist to price artwork, accept commissions, approach galleries, stay out of trouble with the IRS and more.

For a long time now our advanced students, some of whom have been with us for more than 10 years and doing excellent work, have been asking us how to price their work and how to go about negotiating a commission. We've decided to compile some basic info on the business of art and present it to anyone who is at that in-between stage of not yet professional, but more than Sunday painter. This workshop will give them the foundation to sell successfully, make a profit and pay taxes.

If you need this information, comment to this post or email us at our address so that we can send you more info:

Workshop takes place from 2-5 on November 17, and Dec 1. Isn't green a beautiful color?!

Peace and creativity,

We love our students!

Jane is doing a spectacular job!

Diane's just painting away as usual, damn she's good. :)

Maria's flowers in colored pencil are so rich.

Kelli came out from behind the canvas and took over Jean's painting. She loves it when we grab the brush. The trick is getting it back.
