Use the principle of Design to make stronger art

The Art2Life Free Online Workshop starts tomorrow, Monday, February 13th and I’m so excited! Click here to join us if you haven’t already.

I’ll be diving into our first principle — Design. The basic idea is that a painting is more interesting when there’s variety in the work. Take a look at this piece I’m working on. Something’s not quite right, but I have a hunch how to fix it.

Let me show you…

Understanding and applying the Art2Life principles can get you unstuck quickly and make your work stronger. I’ll go deeper into this tomorrow in the Free Workshop. I can’t wait to spend the week with you!

How do you think about Design in your work? I’d love to hear in the comments.

My guest for this week’s podcast is German artist Insa Hoffmann who came into the Art2Life community several years ago and her work took off. I love how she thinks and talks about the art/life dance we’re all in. Join us for this engaging conversation coming out this Wednesday! Click here to subscribe to the Art2Life Podcast and catch up on past episodes, too!

Hope to see you tomorrow for this year’s Free Workshop! It’s my favorite time of the year!
