Deby, you mentioned the difference between artists in Europe and America. I would love to hear more about that.

You also asked what we have going on this weekend. Monday is my wife's 40th birthday, so I'm spending most of today putting together a secret gift basket for her of 40 items she will like.

Hi Deby, struggling in what way? What has you stuck?

And yes I am painting. I am trying to finish 7-8 paintings/murals on tiles. They will be presented to a builder and designer this next week.... I'm not freaking out at all...lol. Actually I am not allowing myself to think second thoughts. I will not let fear stop me this time!! I keep telling myself I can do this and I can do it well.

Ed, I love hearing that you have a dream to visit London and Paris. I suggest that you write your dream on post it notes and post them on your mirror or computer - in a place that you see everyday. Think about it, pray about it . . . you never know how God may bring it to pass.

Hi guys, anyone being creative this weekend? What's on your agenda? I'm struggling with painting images from my trip. Hopefully, it's just a temporary setback.

Jason, I think the video is a great idea, but I do think that with a few tweaks they could be better. I highly recommend that you watch this video - it will give you some great ideas:Tips for Creating Great Video Content

Have a great Saturday!

Hey Deby, welcome home! Can't wait to hear all of the wisdom and experiences you will have to share.

Roy, I got to listen this morning and that was cool about your art and non profits. Your paintings are really good! they remind me of street artists work I would see in the different cities in Europe. I do with pastels what you do water color. I had never thought about the non profit options, but I am kind of excited about it! I am going to explore it more. My daughter goes to a magnet school of the arts and she and some of her friends were looking for ways to use their talents and time to volunteer. This could be just what they were looking for. students creating art for a worthy cause would make for a cool draw I think. I really appreciate you sharing that!!! I will keep you posted.
By the way stopped in briefly to PMP and joined but I haven't had time to really explore yet. Loved the site!

So, here's another idea. I would like to do video podcasts where artists could send me images of their art work and I would instruct them using the images on how to take it to the next level. I have a class that I have worked with for several years and it has evolved into this very thing. They work for a month and they pay me to come and tell them what they can do to make it better. I have found I really enjoy facilitating more than teaching. Anyway what do y'all think??
Blessings, Deb

Jason, this is a great concept for a video. Of course, there can be a ton of different applications for this. Most businesses could benefit from using video in lots of different ways, and haven't even considered how it could help their business. This has huge potential, I believe. I wonder if you showed businesses something like this and then helped them understand ways they could specifically use video in their business, if that would help them realize the value of this.

Just yesterday, I was looking through my Amazon wish list and came across a book I added there a few months ago. Thought you might be interested: http://www.amazon.com/Video-Marketing-Strategies-Businesses-ebook/d...

Woo Hoo! Dan answered my question on the podcast! Thanks Dan :) He as always had words of wisdom, weird feeling to hear your name though! I am going to be doing more of the Sunrise to Sunset paintings, for any interested here is a link to my post about the first time I did this I am so glad that I am on target with my idea, perhaps it is my 'Englishness' that makes me uncomfortable to market to charities, but as it is all upside for them I can see it is a biz opportunity, and Dan has helped to clarify my thinking.
