Got (small) review at new gallery!

Wanted to let you know about new gallery representation I have in New Paltz, NY! If you're in the area please stop by! It's a great place to visit. My son and daughter-in-law and three grandkids live nearby so I get to visit my paintings often! And Paty is easy to talk to and will be happy to talk about all the artists she represents. Here's a link to an article about us. Enjoy!

Coaching the Artist Within

Been reading Eric Maisel's book entitled Coaching the Artist Within and highly recommend it! He addresses issues that we all face with helpful hints and practical advice. Basically, how do we start?
How do we get out of the way of ourselves?
I like to break it down; I usually say to myself, "I'm just going to set up the still life today!" Of "i'm just going to make a sketch." That usually gets me started for the whole day. What about you?
