I just got back from nearly a week at the Fantastic Workshop in Nashville, produced by @petemohrbacher and @samuelflegal of the One Fantastic Week/1FW weekly web show (look it up on YouTube) about independent fantasy art business. I came back with a combination of big philosophical ideas and concrete strategies to continue to evolve my art practice and business. In the past year or two I feel like I’ve really found my voice as an artist with these experimental portraits, and like I finally have a stable place I’m passionate about building out from. I really can’t thank these dudes and the community they’ve fostered enough for how they are helping artists to succeed and shifting the societal model for what options artists have open to them for supporting themselves with their work.
Although the focus of the workshop was business we also had time to actually paint together in the evenings. Here’s a snippet of the big 22” x 22” watercolor I brought with me. It may need a few small adjustments before I share the full finished piece, but for the most part I did the entire painting over the course of three evenings at the workshop. This will be “Intermediary II,” a new version of a subject that has appeared previously.
So, what are you folks feeling thankful for right now? Happy Thanksgiving!
