What About That Small Grain of Sand in Your Artist’s Shoe?

I know, your artist-career palette is brimming over.

There are sales to consider. How to be, and stay, connected to collectors. Where to show your work. The website updates that haven’t been dealt with. The studio that needs an overhaul.

And goodness only knows, that’s just the career side of your life.

So here I come and yammer on about that small grain of sand in your artist’s shoe: artist statements.

I can only imagine that taking five minutes out of your day feels like five years.

But let me tell how much I’ve learned from those of you who took 5 minutes and completed my easy-peasy survey.

  • Feel more confident writing about your work
  • Understand why you do what you do! (Seems as if you have the what you do, and how you do it, under wraps.)
  • Identify the true spirit of your work

The irony here is that one of the mainstays of any artist’s careers are the collectors. And when you know what to write for them to become, and stay, engaged with you, that grain of sand in your shoe becomes a sun-warmed beach with aqua waters.

What do you want at this point in your art career? Now’s the time.

P.S. I even give you a space in the survey to tell me anything you’d like me to know about you, your art, and your art career.

P.S.S. You have no idea about all the areas of an art career I can weave into an artist statement workshop. All I need to know is what do you need. So, come tell me!
