What do artists do all day?

It’s a busy time here, and because what artists do all day seems like a bit of a mystery, I thought I’d invite you to get a glimpse behind the scenes.

I’ve been creating a new course for artists called the Four Foundations for a Thriving Art Practice. My collaborator, the Seattle artist Sarah Guthrie and I conceived of this 5-week class to help artists build sustainable, fulfilling art practices, and there is no other course exactly like this one out there. I’m really proud of this work because I know it can make a difference in a lot of artists’ lives. The course launches on February 23rd.

Last week, I had an excellent conversation with Sonya Pfeiffer, director of Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art, about the thought process behind the work in my exhibit, Hold us in the light. You can watch our chat here on my blog. View the works and shop the exhibition here.

For the last year, I’ve had an installation/video project I’ve been thinking about (something on the scale of Paper Mountain) and I finally got the ball rolling. The project is inspired by the effects of flood waters, and I am currently in the early prototyping phase and working on grant proposals for funding. Given the scale of the project, I’m probably a couple of years out on exhibiting this, so stay tuned!

I’ve also been continuing to develop my painting and drawing skills by working from life and refining my knowledge of color by doing color studies. In retrospect, it seems that’s what I typically do in the winter and in between larger projects.

I have a favor to ask. If you know anyone who would be interested, would you forward this post to them or let them know about my work? Or if you feel comfortable, would you forward their email to me and I’ll take it from there? Word of mouth is one of the best way that I connect with new collectors. I really appreciate your support!
