Elemental 1

This image was created entirely in Photoshop, but the process was much like that of abstracts I have made using paint and ink. In both cases, the idea was to start with an interesting shape or effect and then add to it (or take away) in an intuitive way. In the end, the exercise is a much about the process of discovery as it is about creating a pleasing image. Of course, the creation of something attractive is at the heart of how most people understand art, but sometimes one’s intuition doesn’t lead to that result. In such cases, the response should not be to discount one’s intuition and try to force an effect, but to trust the process and stick with it.

Marketing Art Online

I just discovered the Abundant Artist, a site by Corey Huff that helps creatives market their art. I’ll be going back to it in coming days and weeks and will be listening to their Creative Insurgents podcasts as well. For now, I wanted to mention anĀ  article on that site that I found worthwhile, even though it is a few years old. For anyone starting to sell their art online, check it out. It’s called 15 Ways to Sell Your Art Online and has links to a lot of good resources. Make sure to check out the comments while you’re there too as people have offered additional resources and suggestions.
