Whether you're a writer, painter, sculptor, or jewelry artist, you probably struggle with overwhelm. I bet no matter what you try you just can't seem to grow your profits. I know it's not for a lack of trying! Artists wear a lot of hats and juggle a lot of responsibility.
There are millions of artists creating amazing things, yet with changing times, the traditional ways of reaching customers are no longer the most effective. How can you create great work, get your name and work in front of buyers, all while finding some balance in your life?
Well I have a treat for you! On February 28th, Tonya Davidson - the Creative Marketing and Artist Development Whiz, is offering a brand new, complimentary online class, "The Profitable Artist: 5 Essential Ingredients to Being Successful".

The 10 Elements of Design: Which is the most important one?
Part 4 in the series of articles on the Art of Design
At a past conference an artist friend asked me for advice. She was at a complete loss and frustrated! A piece she had submitted to a jury of evaluators had been criticized and had failed to pass the criteria in a credential program. The artist didn't understand why and was desperately seeking an answer.
As I describe it, see if you can begin to realize the design issues. It was Art Nouveau in style with a beautiful floral pattern around the oval box. The feet on the bottom of the box were 4 square cubes. The lid had a dichroic glass cabochon, which was bezel set. It was beautifully finished, antiqued and technically well constructed.
What was the problem? It seemed pretty...
Elements are components of a design that can be identified or isolated. They help to tell the story. They communicate the purpose, idea, or meaning of the piece. The elements and its cumulative design allow the observer/wearer to connect to the piece in their own way. It brings their personal truth to it. It synthesizes their past, their thoughts, and their future. It speaks to the viewer!
