Being an Artist
Karl Zipser has started a new blog on all things art and has started a series of posts on being an artist. He has started with two steps so far..
- (1) Keep the studio organized - I suffered from having a messy studio. I used to argue to myself that for every minute I spend cleaning, is a minute less I spend painting. But it really does make a difference when things are clean and organized. Francis Bacon's studio shouldn't be used as an example! (see image number 4 for a view of his studio interior).
- (2) Be an Artist - It's something that most artists have to deal with. So many artists become teachers, designers, or whatever else it is to put food on the table, while being an artist becomes a distant goal.
I'm not sure how much further Karl will take his series on being an artist, but it's definitely not as easy as walking in the studio and picking up a brush each day. See his blog here.
