No More Excuses!

As you can probably tell from my blog, I enjoy reading--artist biographies, spiritual books, art marketing books, artist magazines, art history books, drawing books, how to books. You name the art topic and it's probably on my list. The book I'm reading now, and probably will be for a while, is a new book by Alyson Stanfield titled I'd Rather Be in The Studio! The Artist's No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion. The reason it will take me a while is that it is full of information--not the kind you browse over, the kind that makes you STOP and do. Work on that artist statement, organize those files, update that 10-second commerical, and list your goals. No time for excuses.

I’d Rather Be in the Studio! The Artist’s No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion is for artists of all kinds. Painters, sculptors, ceramist, jewelers, photographers, and others will benefit from the easy-to-follow self-promotion practices in this book.

Author and art-marketing consultant Alyson B. Stanfield, of ArtBizCoach.com, focuses on sharing the artwork directly with potential buyers through electronic and traditional communication outlets—in a manner that is comfortable, not artificial. Artists match Internet marketing strategies with sincere personal skills to take charge of their art careers.

The book includes online worksheets and downloads.
