Many years ago, I fantasized about being in a prestigious gallery in San Francisco. The art shown there was incredible. I often went to the openings and remembered being awed by the work of one artist in particular. The work was so amazing and his level of imagination felt so beyond what I could come up with, I just had to find out more about it. Of course, I didn’t dare speak to the artist himself, but I found the gallerist that night and asked, “how does he do this?” To my surprise, she said, “he just makes this stuff up!” That’s it I thought? I couldn’t believe her comment but suddenly, it felt like anything was possible. If this artist was just doing what he wants, so can I, and more importantly, so can you!
Let me show you…
This is what SPARK is all about— art-making that is accessible to all. Everyone is eligible, and anything goes! All that matters is what you care about. SPARK is open only for a couple more days — enrollment closes on Sep. 20th at 11:59 pm PDT.
I’ll be live today at noon on the Art2Life Youtube Channel and the Creative Breadcrumbs Facebook group to demonstrate how to get your art going easier, as well as answering questions about SPARK. Plus I’ll be giving away some cool prizes!
What are you excited about in your work? Let me know in the comments.
Have a great Sunday!Nicholas
PS This week’s podcast is my interview with an incredible artist, José Delhart Gonzalez, who takes this accessible approach to creativity, making it easy for all to connect with his work. Some of his most elaborate paintings start on pizza boxes! The work shows introspection and clarity about what matters to him most and it’s powerful. I hope you’ll join me.
