Realism Painters?

Hi people. I am about to do outdoor shows. Not sure what to expect, but, I sure hope it is better than hanging in galleries. Does anyone out there do realism? That is my style; even when i have tried to branch out or loosen up. Finally decided to paint the way I paint and not fight it. Even though it is time consuming. Not seeing much realism painters. Are you out there?

Hi Everyone - anyone

I have no idea what to expect from this forum. I am guessing that fellow artists can post things that they might want to share - like shows they are in or problems they might be having with a painting or sculpture.

i am also starting to uncoil. i didn't realize how tense i have been at the office. the prospect of not having to do that anymore feels so NICE!

plus, i had… Continue

Chicago Portraits

I recently had the pleasure of being photographed by Michael "Chester" Alamo & Costello (yes, that’s his name). Chester is working on a series of photographs of Chicago artists. When he asked if I would allow him to do mine, I was honored.

I wasn't sure what to expect; Chester came to my studio with a couple of lights, cameras, and other photography equipment. I have a large space, so luckily it all fit… Continue

The scary transition to being a full-time artist

I have wanted to be a full-time artist since I was 16. Now, at 60, I am being laid off from a good job. Getting by on what will be available to me financially is very scary. But I am taking the risk of trying to make it work.

Last weekend at the studio, facing my canvases after deciding to paint full time, I was riddled with doubt. Am I really good enough? Even if I am good enough, will I be able to survive? A recipe for creative constipation. Of course, I painted anyway - that is… Continue
