Earlier this week I wrote about my creative process, which is fantastic for starting the masterpieces that will undoubtedly be unearthed one thousand years from now and studied by anthropologists. Today I would like to take one step back and discuss creative freedom. We all…

We all have different techniques to get our imaginative juices flowing... And we all feel at times that the world of art is designed specifically to create roadblocks, walls and barriers of various kinds. The artistic process can most definitely flow effortlessly, but sometimes we…

I have always been drawn to the open air, the beautiful outdoors, and the vastness of natural wonders around me. I am known for taking (literally) hundreds of photographs on a hike and occasionally picking up a pencil or brush to capture the beauty I…

When I’m not marketing for the Sedona Arts Center, or painting, drawing, writing and designing – I sometimes play photographer. I’m pretty good at it in fact and I’ve even been called a ‘professional’. Over a decade ago I accidentally stumbled upon a fantastic technique…

I originally began this week’s blog with eloquent and descriptive words describing my recent experience at a casting party. I started writing about the ubiquitous rumble and vibration from the underground furnace; watching the large graphite crucible slowly lifted away from the yellow-green flame... But…

What does community mean to you? I’ve been tossing this idea around for a few weeks with my colleagues in the art world. By popular definition, a community is a social group of interacting people who live in close proximity and share common cultural and…

Now that I’ve thoroughly discussed the marketing nightmare I call “myself” (last week’s blog), I think it would be best to move on to the wonderful world of marketing. This week in my self-publishing class, I’ll be bringing the world of self-promotion to aspiring authors…

One of the most frequently asked questions I’ve heard is, “So, what do you do?” For a large number of people this can be very simple to answer: Artist, Photographer, Musician, Dancer, Astrophysicist, Clerk, Economist, Retiree, or Astronaut. However, for others (like me) this can…

There’s a certain appeal to pragmatism. I’m not referencing Charles Peirce’s philosophical movement in the 1870’s – but simply the idea of linking practice and theory in our art and dedications. Personally, I’m dedicated to my family, art, career and yoga. I’m sure I could…

It’s indispensable, priceless and precious and that’s exactly why you should be giving it away. What am I talking about? Time, of course! Now, before you get all riled up and tell me that I was justexplaining to you how very important time is, please…

Those of us who live amongst the red rocks of Sedona are truly privileged. We are immersed in beauty at every waking moment. Good Morning Americarecently listed Sedona as the third most beautiful place in the United States. Hundreds of thousands of people flock here…

We find, have, take, make, and can be just in or out of time; it passes quickly or slowly and sometimes stands still; we often have too much or too little of it on our hands and now and then we just don’t know where…

When I was growing up there were two things that fascinated me: Art and Science. I knew at an early age that I would follow either one of those paths as I traveled down the fantastic road of life. I studied and collected stones and…

Have you heard about the Jackson Pollock bought at a thrift store for $5? Or how about the original version of the Declaration of Independence in a Tennessee thrift store that sold for $2.48 in 2007? Or perhaps you heard about the original Picasso found…

Earlier this year, I wrote my first art blog here at the Red Rock News. I stressed the importance of the arts in education, society and life in general. I asked you as individuals to keep art alive and well. I begged you to consider…

What makes art beautiful and who decides what fine art is and what makes fine paperweights? I’ve had seemingly endless debates on this subject throughout the course of my life. Too often, artists and non-artists look at a painting and say, “My three-year-old could paint…
