It is not just about painting pretty pictures

Most people think this is what art is about. But it is not. It is so much more.

Unfortunately many beautiful paintings are never seen, and most painters wait for someone to notice them.

All aspiring artists need to develop a brand and promote themselves continually through shows, workshops, exhibits, advertisements, business cards, flyers, email blasts, and websites blogs. Building a brand takes a lot of time away from the artist’s true passion: painting.

By tenaciously building a brand, an aspiring artist will eventually get noticed. Getting noticed is not easy, but if you love art, nothing is too small or large of a challenge for the determined artist to reach his dreams.
