Merry Christmas! My Twelve Days of Christmas giveaway has come to a close and I want to thank each of you who joined me in celebrating the holidays these past 12 days. Yesterday we had over a hundred suggestions as to ways we can all give back and help our fellow artists in the coming year. I will be sharing many of these wonderful ideas on next week's "Artists Helping Artists" show. 

Don't forget I am hosting the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge in January!  If you would like to participate in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge you can sign up here on my blog. Be ready to post your first painting on January 1st right here on my blog. Please be sure to sign up to receive my Daily blog posts as well so you don't miss anything! So far we have 203 artists signed up for the Challenge.

The winner of the final giveaway (which is the painting pictured above) is Shannon Celia! Congratulations! Email me so we can finalize all of the details and I can get figure out how to get the painting to you. 

Finally, for those of you that participated in the Twelve Days of Christmas, there was a reason behind every "request" you had to do to participate. I tried really hard to get all of your artwork shown and publicized on my blog. I also hope that the comments you made on my blog were a great catalyst for getting ready for 2014.  For those of you that went back and found a favorite painting or blog post, make a mental note of what you liked! Try to incorporate everything you saw and liked in to your own artwork. Most importantly, take one of the suggestions as to how you can help your fellow artists and make a point to incorporate it in to your plans for 2014. We all need to give back and help our fellow artists.

Happy holidays. Merry Christmas. And thanks for making my life so complete!

12 Days of Christmas - Day 12

Pin It

It's hard to believe tomorrow is the last day of the Twelve Days of Christmas giveaway. This has been a lot of fun and thank you to the hundreds of you that have participated in the fun. 

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed all of your stories about Christmas traditions. There were so many  traditions that I absolutely loved! Our family has many holiday traditions ... our Christmas party, the boys playing hide and go seek at the Christmas tree lot, watching the Citrus Singers, piling in the car in our jammies on Christmas Eve to see the lights on St. Albans, Dave reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas" on the night before Christmas and making my mom's Overnight Sausage Casserole on Christmas morning. All of these traditions were started in our family many years ago and hold strong ever year. Our boys may be taller and older but these special moments will be with us forever. Thanks to each of you for sharing so many wonderful stories. 

The winner of the 11th Day Giveaway is Paula Riley. Paula is the winner of one of my cookbooks. There aren't many copies out there so I hope you will enjoy it! Send me your address and I will mail it to you. I just ordered some cookbooks and they will be here in mid-January.

The 12th Day giveaway prize is one of my original oil paintings.

"Ready for the New Year"
Oil, 11" x 14"

It is featured here and it is an 11" x 14" oil painting. I will frame it and of course ship it to the winner. If you would like to have a chance to win the painting, my request is simple. I am a true believer that as artists we all need to think about giving back. We need to do everything we can to help our fellow artists.  That's why my radio show is named "Artists Helping Artists".

I am looking for suggestions as to how we can all help our fellow artists. So to be eligible for the final giveaway leave your suggestions here. What do you think is a great way to help a fellow artist? Share your ideas on my blog or on any of my facebook pages. And you are welcome to make as many suggestions as you want if you would like to increase your chances to win. The winner will be announced on Christmas Day.

12 Days of Christmas - Day 11

Pin It

Wow, only one day until my Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaway is over! I can't believe it. And, I survived our party. Now that's good news! I can't wait to get in my studio and start painting again.

Some of you may have heard that I am doing another "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge. It starts on January 1st and all of you are invited to join me! We are going to paint 30 paintings in 30 days and you can post your painting on my blog if you choose to participate. It will be fun and it is a fantastic way to start of the new year. I think it's a great chance to try some new things and also get in the habit of painting more often. Think about it. Give it a try. What's the worst thing that can happen? Perhaps you paint 15 paintings and after 15 days you can't continue. At least you will have painted 15! 

Some of you may want to decide on a theme for your thirty paintings. That's great. You can also  choose a size and paint that size every day. Or paint 30 value studies. Maybe you will paint 30 larger versions of paintings you have already done. Or paint 30 paintings that each represent a month of the year (then you can print a 2014 calendar right away!) Maybe you want to paint the same painting but just vary it each day. It's up to you! Just make sure you are ready by the first day of January ...

Today's giveaway is your own personal copy of my cookbook!
It's titled "Old, New, Borrowed and blue" and it has every single one of my favorite recipes. Every item that I serve at our Christmas party is in the cookbook and I promise, you will love it!

To qualify for the 11th Day Giveaway all you need to do is share your favorite holiday tradition. Share them here or on my Facebook page. I can't wait to read your stories!

The winner of the Day 10 free workshop giveaway is Cindy Stierhoff. Congrats! Be sure to email me  so we can get you all signed up for one of my workshops.

12 Days of Christmas - Day 9

Wow. If you ever needed any tips to organize you life, office or studio then you might want to head on over and read the nearly 100 posts on my blog from yesterday's giveaway. There are so many great ideas! And to think I thought I was organized. Apparently I am not even close. I can't tell you how much I appreciate sharing all of these great tips! Thank you.

The winner of the 12 Days of Christmas Day Eight Giveaway is Nancy Laliberte.  One of you mentioned that you thought I would award the giveaway to the person with the best organizational tip. But that is not the case as all of the winners are selected at random. I use random.org and the computer actually selects the winner. So congrats Nancy! Email me and we will set up your free consultation.

The Day Nine Giveaway is a $100 gift certificate towards one of my paintings or any of the merchandise featured on my website (I am sorry it doesn't apply to my workshops). To qualify for the giveaway, all you have to do is leave a post on this blog or my Facebook pages answering the following question.
"I love being an artist because ...".

Dig deep, and take a moment to think about why we are so blessed to be artists. And enjoy your day! 

I have been cooking for weeks for our annual holiday party which is tonight. I have made enough food for over 200 people. My menu is ridiculous ... twenty-four appetizers (including smoked turkey, shrimp, smoked salmon, chicken, steak and ahi) and six desserts. I actually have an excel document that breaks down the preparation of every food item into steps.  It is color coded reminding me what has to be cooked that day. The grid is set up for the 14 days prior to the party. And believe it or not, I am on schedule!!!!

12 Days of Christmas - Day 8

Pin It

If you haven't figured it out by now, there is a method to my madness in asking you to do certain things to be eligible for my 12 Days of Christmas giveaway. Most of them are to prepare you to get ready for 2104. By having to go back and decide on your favorite painting for this past year, I am hoping the process will lead to some good things for 2014. The same goes for having you choose your greatest success, biggest marketing challenge and suggest a topic for the AHA show. I am hoping the process you had to go through to identify these things will help you with your goals for next year.

The Artists Helping Artists radio show today was titled "Getting Ready for 2014". I thought the show was excellent and I suggest you try to listen to it as it does relate to some of the things we have done here. Click here to listen to the show.

The winner for the 12 Days of Christmas Day Seven giveaway is Dawn Kinney Martin. Congrats on winning a set of 20 notecards. Email me with your address so I can send them off to you later this week. I hope you all read the great APPs that were mentioned on my blog yesterday. I can't wait to try some of them out.

Keeping in the AHA spirit, to be eligible for the 12 Days of Christmas Day 8 giveaway, all you need to do is share something you do to stay organized. This "tip" can occur in your studio, your office, your computer or when you are painting plein air. Just think of a tip, website or great tool you use that helps you stay organized. I can't tell you how much these ideas will help every single one of us! I will be forever grateful.

The giveaway is the most expensive one yet ... another Private Marketing Consultation. It's a pretty cool service I offer that's valued at $250.00.  If you want to learn more about what happens in one of my marketing consultations, just go here. So, start thinking about those organizational tips. Post them here on my blog or either of my Facebook pages. Thanks!

12 Days of Christmas - Day 7

Pin It

Yesterday's blog posts were all about selling your art. I asked all of you to identify the biggest marketing challenge you face as an artist. The response was amazing! Many of you want help with identifying your style, getting in to galleries, pricing, building a better website and just balancing marketing and painting at the same time.

I have tried really hard these past few years to answer many of your marketing questions through the Artists Helping Artists show. But I realized earlier this year there was a need for more detailed information. That's why I created webinARTs to show you EXACTLY how to do all of this "marketing stuff". 

I posted this question on yesterday's giveaway post because I wanted to get an even better understanding of what artists need to help make them more successful. I am currently updating the webinARTs class as software updates necessitate this to happen often. The first new course starts in April 2014. So mark your calendars and plan to sign up! All of your comments will also help to  determine show topics for the AHA show.  So thank you for sharing and I am going to do everything I can to help all of you!

I am not trying to push webinARTs on any of you. It's just that I believe it is a really great resource. All of the information is there to create a website, better blog, manage all of your Facebook pages and build a client list. And you have access to it for a year. As a way to say thank you for helping me I have created a discount code to save $20.00 off the April class. Use "save20" at registration to redeem this discount. This offer is only available to the first 25 people who register for the course! Visit the webinARTs website to learn morea nd register!

Now ... The winner of the Day Six Giveaway is Rosie Phillips. Rosie has won the April one month webinARTs course. Just email me and I will get you all signed up for the course. Congrats!

Today's giveaway is a set of 20 of my notecards (valued at $60). To be eligible for the giveaway, all you have to do is tell us about your favorite App! I love sharing information with students in my workshops and app are a great resource. My two favorite apps are Houzz and Waze. Houzz was a very helpful tool for our beach house remodel this summer. And Waze is the best app for navigation and traffic. It's free and everyone should use it!

Day One!

Giving gifts during the holidays is one of my favorite things to do. Just ask any of my family members and they will gladly share a long list of the homemade, mostly "nice" gifts that I gave out every Christmas. Over the years there were some duds and quite a few that were given when "still unfinished"! It's time to continue my holiday tradition of gift giving!

The Day One giveaway is an AHA embroidered apron. The lucky winner can pick either white or black and I will embroider your first name on the apron!

To be eligible for the Day One prize, all you have to do is click below and add a photo of one of YOUR paintings that you consider is your most favorite from 2013! If you are not an artist feel free to upload any painting that you love! Just click the "Add Your Link" Button. You can link to a painting on your website or you can upload a photo. Have fun! This is my chance to say thank you by showing off YOUR ART to my friends!

Get Ready for the January 2014 "30 Paintings in 30 Days" Challenge!

Pin It

I know you are all swamped with the holidays. 
But you need to take a moment and consider joining me for the 30 in 30 Challenge in January. 
I did it twice last year and it changed my art career. You should too.
It's really easy to join the Challenge.

The January 2014 30 in 30 Challenge is very simple and easy ... all you need to do is paint 30 paintings in 30 days. You can post your paintings daily here on my blog to share and I hope my blog will offer encouragement for those of you who might fall behind, need inspiration or have no idea what to paint!
I am doing this challenge for a lot of reasons. Personally, I need to paint more so I know this challenge will get me in my studio every day. I also firmly believe that if you paint more regularly you will improve your painting skills in dramatically. I am sharing this with you because the 30 Day Challenge last January and September were awesome.

So, what do you need to do to accept this challenge and stay on track? Well, here are my steps ...
1. Post a link to your blog (or website) below to say officially that you are in.
2. Make a commitment to yourself to enter this challenge and understand there may be days when you need to paint more than one painting to "get ahead" or "catch up".
3. Understand there are no real rules for this challenge. If you miss a day, then paint two the next day. If you fall behind, please stay in the challenge! No one is counting how many paintings you have completed (except you), I promise. The only rule is that you must have fun and enjoy the process.
4. Tell your art friends about this challenge and get them to join in so you can share your experiences with your art buddies.
5. Decide in advance on what you want to paint for the month. You might select a theme (such as painting still life, reflections, glass, flowers, landscapes, value studies, portraits, etc.) or a particular size or different medium. I do suggest you paint fairly small as a painting a day is a big commitment.
6. Get organized. Go through your photos and pick at least the first week of inspiration or plan out your plein air locations in advance. Check your supplies to make sure you have enough canvas(es) for at least the first week. 
7. Spend an hour organizing your painting area. If you studio looks like mine (and is full of stuff), a bit of organization is a good thing.
8. Tell your friends and family you are doing this. They can provide great support.
9. Blog about it. Be sure to upload your daily painting on your blog and put it on your blog and website. Talk about the experience, what you are learning and the fun you are having. Be sure to include prices (and please charge a price that makes it worth your while ... paintings listed too cheap seem too cheap) and an easy way for someone to buy your paintings (i.e. buy now buttons ...). Then share it also on Facebook.
10. Post your daily painting on my blog and include a link to the page on your blog featuring that painting. I am hoping the visibility here will help you sell your paintings! Who knows. 
11. And most importantly, have fun. If you get behind no one will notice. If you do paint all 30 paintings then you will know you accomplished an amazing goal and have completed our "Start of the Year" Challenge with a bang. If you reach some hurdles, talk about it on my blog as all of us are here to help. We will support each other, I promise.

This is going to be fun. The Challenge officially starts on January 1st.
