Discover the Unknown Artist

Successful artisans don’t wait to be discovered; they discover themselves first and act on that artists call a long time before the, galleries, the customers, or the crowds do.

A key step to business success as an artist or any one for that matter is to stop and ask yourself some important questions: What makes you truly happy? What gives a deeply gratifying soulful fulfillment to you? What is the definition of artistic success to you? Can you draw a little stick figure picture of it? Is it the same as living a successful life without your art being in the big picture? Is it different? If it is different, can you draw a little stick figure picture of that? The answers you reveal may surprise you… and can very well be the spark of an awakening to your true motivation, passion and purpose in life and the discovery of your “artist voice.

What are three of your top goals for making a living with your art?

What is preventing you from being empowered and reaching your artist goals?

What is frustrating you about making a living with your art?

What solutions have you tried so far that have not worked for you?

What's your biggest fear you need to overcome in order to live an empowered artist life?

What worries you about being an artist? What are you afraid will happen if you don't do something immediately about this fear or challenge?

What would you be willing to do to feel more secure and confident about overcoming artistic adversity?

If you could have one question answered about living an empowered artist life, what would it be?

Is there anything else you'd like to tell me about you or your situation as an artist?

Is it time to get your art show on the road? These are many questions we go over in The Big Picture for artists as well as discuss and share real business tips that can help you take off on the road to making a living with your art.

To your artist success!
