The Painters Keys

January 31, 2010


If you have a chance, it’s worth the effort to check out The Painter’s Keys and sign up for the free newsletter there.  I just had one forwarded to me and it was well written by Robert Genn, made an excellent point and invoked a nice point of view on getting your work noticed. Here is the letter:

Here’s the link to the site in general:     http://painterskeys.com/

There are lots of resources for artists there and to sign up for the free, twice weekly newsletter:

I see that the topics written on are all related to artists and one of the most popular pages on the site is the Resource of Art Quotations and I can see why.  Here’s are several good quotes from that page:

“Jumping at several small opportunities may get us there more quickly than waiting for the big one to come along.” (Hugh Allen)

“When one door closes another door opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” (Alexander Graham Bell)

“I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be. If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else.” (Joseph Campbell)

Go forth and be artists today!
