This question came from Alan Sears.  This is interesting because Alan and I met while I was working for Genigraphics in New York & New Jersey where I was a top sales person selling computer graphic business presentations.  My main clients were pharmaceutical, telecommunications and household product companies.  In the late 80s and 90s I felt like I was out of my element being a sales person becuase my BFA degree was in Communication Design from Parsons School of Design.  I used my creative abilities to act not only as an account executive but an art director as well.  Being able to create on the spot with clients I believe made me a successful salesperson.  I continued this path joining AT&T Business as a account exective selling Internet related solutions.  AT&T is a great company becuase they invest in their employees to make sure they are well trained in sales techniques, negiotation tactics, and marketing.  After a number of years I joined the creative marketing team for AT&T Local...

Like every other business person, Mondays are the start of a new week.  I am back in the studio after a restful Fourth of July weekend. Here are few shots of me working in my studio with the wonderful north light shining in.  I am working on a few commissioned "Billy Boot" paintings for some new patrons from North Carolina.  They asked for a North Carolina Boot with references to the lighthouses on the shore, and for a Texas Boot with references to the TX Lone Star Flag and the Space Shuttlle.  I painted the ground of the canvases with a bright orange with will help solidify the two paintings as a pair.  Starting Mondays off with work is a great way to get back in the groove and get my painting talents tuned up. I welcome visitors to my studio either when I am there working or by appointment.  I would like to thank my artist friend, Michael Perrucci for taking these photos with my iPhone of me working.

Being an professional artist is more than just creating good art.  To be successful you need to also find the time to market and sell your art, grow your audience and collectors, develop opportunities to show your art, new projects that require documenting your art, developing your process, find new inspiration and of course find time in the studio to create!  Why does this matter?  Well I am taking up the process of continuing a blog.  This will be another attempt to document my life as an artist.  More and more artists are being asked to give insight to their work.  One way to showcase this is in a blog.  So I will begin this journey with this post.  The power is within me, and the power lies within you as well to follow me, have faith and believe in my journey as an artist.  

 

The artwork is the start of a painting that I completed in 2013 when I was in the Escapism program.  I like to start artworks with a positive message that I pain...
