Nominees for Supporting Artists...


Typically when you hear talk about supporting artists it means buying their work. That of course is terrific. But most of us artists who have to watch our nickles and dimes, know that not everyone can afford an original or can buy each print or card or magnet that we offer. There's another great way to support your favorite artists, and it is really simple: share their work on social media. Now being a follower is a start, but what I'm talking about is giving a 'thumbs up' a 'heart' or a 'like', a share, a re-post, or a re-tweet. Most artists can't afford much (or anything) for marketing & advertising so every share and like is really helpful and appreciated. If you're already a fan or follower just take that extra step when you're scrolling through and hit that button and be an active supporter!

P.S. Share an artists work from the venues he/she provides. Posting an artist's work, without really giving acknowledgment, their name, their website etc. is not supportive or cool.

"Hung" in great company

An art patron sent me pics of one of my originals he owns, "Hung" (upper left).  I love seeing where my 'kids' end up finding homes.  I'm honored to be part of this gorgeous collection he has, and to be hung next to one of Tom Jones works (lower left).  Tom was very influential in my journey of turning my art hobby into a full time career.
