Abstract triptych, 24" x 24" each.
It's so easy to be a loner as an artist. Everyday we paint. In our studio or en plein air. We don’t have an "office" to go to as there really aren't any places to go on a daily basis to paint. Yet, if you want to propel your business and skills as an artist you need to find a team. Your team. Put together a mentoring group. Find a local art group to join. Take a local class to meet other artists. Start a Facebook group to find other artists. Whatever you do, don’t be an artist all by yourself. You need other artists to have fun, motivate you, challenge you and support you!
Isn't it hard to achieve anything all alone? It's not that much fun either. Most of us receive some guidance or help from others. Support, information, a sense of shared experience, encouragement, advice, and a well-timed pep talk are all invaluable as you set off on your adventure. This is where having a mentoring group of art friends can be important. Review your art contacts or look on Facebook and see if there are artists in your area, or ones online, who want to talk art. You can meet at a coffee shop monthly or meet via google hangouts or using a free conference call service.
Find your team and support each other! That way you will have someone to share your training, accomplishments and successes.
