My wife turned me onto a great podcast called Artist Helping Artist. The host, Leslie Saeta, and her co-host Margaret Sheldon discuss a specific topic that addresses how to sell more art online, along with guest artists, gallerists, and others sharing their knowledge of the business side of art. Even though these two artists have not published a podcast in several years, these two ladies are on trend with social media and marketing. I enjoyed their talks with famous artists like Doug Diehl and Stapleton Kearns. In fact, Stapleton Kearns judged the Indiana Heritage Art Show in Nashville, IN, several years ago. One warning once you start listening, you won't be able to stop!
As I was going through the massive collections of Artist Helping Artists podcasts – nearly 10 years, Leslie and Margaret shared their feelings about John F Carlson's book Carlson's Guide to Landscape Painting. As you all know, this is my favorite art book of all time. Even though I am a watercolorist and Carlson worked in oils, it has valuable information about drawing, painting, perspective, atmosphere, and so much more. On their show, they mention some of the key ideas from the book... they hope that this will cause their audience (and mine) to reread it or purchase it for your art book collection. It's fantastic that a book nearly 100 years old still holds up. The podcast is about an hour, so listen to it while driving or taking a little time. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN.
The book is easy to find –you can buy a soft cover, spiral bound, or a Kindle book at AMAZON. If you own an iPad like I, you can purchase an iBook at APPLE'S ITUNES STORE.
