QUESTIONS YOU DON’T HAVE TO ANSWER: “How Long Did That Take You to Make?”

Here’s my latest article at Fine Art Views Newsletter called
Questions You Don’t Have to Answer.

And here’s a tongue-in-cheek article by Robert Genn on how the Art Marketing Board of Canada can help you price your artwork.

I find it just as important to write about my art as to make it. I am fascinated by stories. You can tell when people are speaking their truth--their eyes light up, their voices become strong, their entire body posture becomes powerful and upright. I love it when people get to this place in their work, their relationships, their art. As I work from this powerful place in MY heart, I share this process with others--so they have a strong place to stand, too. Because the world needs our beautiful art. All of it we can make, as fast as we can! Whether it's a bowl, a painting, a song, a garden, a story, if it makes our world a better place, we need to do everything in our power to get it out there.

  1. I like saying “40 years” (of however long you have been at it). It stops them in their tracks and gives them something to think about. I explain that over time one process or idea leads to another. It doesn’t just happen in 3 hours or 4. I always measure it in years.

    Anyway, just my take on that particular question.


  2. LOL Since I am a bead weaver I have no problem giving them the actual weaving time since it is hours and hours and not something most people are willing to invest time doing. I also add that I have been working in the medium for years and the time does not include shopping, design, and prep.

    Great question. I will click on the link and read the rest.
