Just recently 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 on-line, along with guest artists, gallerists, and others sharing their knowledge of the business side of art. Marilee said these two ladies are so on trend with social media and marketing. I personally enjoyed their talks with famous artist like Doug Diehl and Stapleton Kearns. In fact Stapleton Kearns will be judging the Indiana Heritage Art Show in Nashville, IN this year. One warning once you start listening you won't be able to stop!
Last week Leslie and Margaret share their feelings about John F Carlson book Carlson's Guide to Landscape Painting.. As you all know hands down this is my favorite art books of all time. Even though I am a watercolorist and Carlson worked in oils I feel 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 amazing a book that is nearly 100 years old still holds up. The podcast is about an hour so listen to it while you are driving or taking a little time for yourself. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN.
The book is easy to find –you can buy a soft cover, spiral bound or for a Kindle at book at AMAZON. If you own an iPad, like I do you can purchase for an iBook at APPLE'S ITUNE STORE.
