Hope you're having a fabulous Saturday!

I wanted to share my article that was featured in a magazine this month:

The Power of the Arts

Comment by Melissa AuClair on December 6, 2013 at 7:14pm

Deby, all of this sounds SO exciting. What a neat way to stay connected with the attendees of the conference. I've gone to conferences before and thought...I wish there was some way to apply what I've learned when I get home.  Sometimes there is SO much information at a conference that I leave with pages of notes and go home and just marinate in the information :)

Chris, art licensing sounds like an exciting opportunity.  I don't know if you've heard of Smart Creative Women Yes...it's primarily for women artists- BUT there is an entire series of video interviews with artists who are making money with licensing. It is something I have my eye on in the somewhat distant future but you've been so prolific...maybe this would be your thing :)

Guys, I've been in the middle of leading an 8 week Artists Arise Online Course. I started it with folks who attended our conference in Oct. We're now finishing up week 6 and I'm getting great feedback!! Folks are making great strides!

We've been clarifying their message, their purpose, creating their online presence with great urls and taglines, creating mind maps, learning Facebook marketing strategies, building their platforms and more!!

I'm excited to announce that I'll be starting another group session in Jan. Stay tuned - I'll let you know when I have my promo page up so you can check it out!

I think most of you would benefit from this 8 week intensive!!

Chris, licensing is a whole world of it's own and I'm sure it's not easy to get in to. Typically they want an image that has 5 -10 associated images that go with it. Check out this blog by Tara Reed.

Read about it and learn. Not saying you should jump into it, but know about it. I think it could be in your future!

Thank you for the encouragement everyone. I really need it right now. What would I need to do to have licensing ? Is it expensive ?

Great ideas! You guys are awesome to pitch in and encourage Chris!

I'm wondering if you could get a license deal with your art, Chris. Have you thought about that? I could see your images on dishes, journals, fabrics . . . all kinds of products!

I just did a 3 hr webinar and have some great information to share. I just need a good nights sleep first .  . . :-) Exciting things are coming for this group. I can't wait to share with you!

You are right Patti, the route is just a few blocks from me in Illinois and goes to California.  So really Chris you could do a series in all different places along Rt 66.  Maybe you'll have to add a motorcycle to your future pieces.

Comment by Patti Landrum on December 3, 2013 at 5:04pm
I don't know if the whole route is des. IT goes cross country and I was on parts of it a few years ago.
Comment by Chris Callen on December 3, 2013 at 4:53pm

Thanks for the idea Patti.  The desert is always a favorite of mine to paint, and I would love to live out there!
