Good and Bad News: Your Work Is Never Done

Newsflash! Youíre just getting started. Whether you think this is good news or bad news depends on your disposition. Some people feel fulfilled and complete every day. I envy them. I want more. Not more stuff, but more out of life. More experiences, more love, more friends, more cats. (Only kidding about that last one!) I know itís not fashionable these days to want more. They say I should be content where I am and live in the moment. Canít I want more and appreciate the present I have come to r...


Overcoming a Major Setback: Annie Salness (Podcast)

Artist Annie Salness suffered a stroke almost 8 years ago. While many artists would have given up when faced with the trials Annie had, she met the challenge and kept moving forward. It wasnít the single challenge of learning to make art again with her non-dominant hand. Annie also had to relearn how to walk, speak, write, and drive. Sheís one of the bravest and most determined people I know. This is the story of a true artist - an artist who has something to say and is committed to making sure ...


Sifting Through Noise that Throws You Off Course

Iíve taken great pride in the fact that Iíve written a weekly newsletter since March 30, 2002 without ever missing an issue. Itís a story Iíve recounted repeatedly. Until now. I skipped last weekís (April 26, 2018) edition - on purpose. I did it because I want to own a better story. I donít want to be known as the woman who wrote a weekly newsletter for more than 16 years. I want to be known as the woman who changed the lives of artists for the better. I had to let go of the old story in order t...


Confronting Your Professional Legacy: David Paul Bayles (Podcast)

Last fall I received an email from David Paul Bayles, who was a member of my class at the time. The email read, in part: Recently The Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley (third largest special collections library in the U.S.) created The David Paul Bayles Photographic Archive to create a home for my lifeís work. I am driving down to meet with them on Monday to place a large number of prints and oral history audio files into the Archive. Whoa. How cool is that A major institution deemed Davidís work ...


The Career Journey of Growth-Minded Artists

One of the most-used business metaphors is the ladder of success. With this metaphor itís assumed that you start at the bottom and work your way to the top rung in a predictable, progressive fashion. Wouldnít it be easy if you always knew your next steps But this isnít how your business works. Think about it. Whatís at the bottom of the ladder of success What is the progression of steps And, most importantly, what in the world happens when you get to the top When you get to the top, are you fini...


Dysfunctional v. Healthy Artist Organizations

Iíve been encouraging artists to join artist organizations for my entire career, but the truth is that not all organizations are created equal. And before you go thinking that you should start your own, let me say this: the world does not need more artist organizations. The world needs better artist organizations - organizations with powerful visions and commitment to serving their artists. To be clear, Iím not talking about organizations for hobbyists. Those serve a separate and noble purpose, ...
