    @jamesboyk *have to begin a new thread - we ran out of room. "Just so you know that “Sketchbook Project” that i showed you has really had made me think in a more focused manner.At the moment i am working on another handmade sketchbook. Using my sketches i made over the years. I am reluctant to talk about it. I don’t want to celebrate before i am done and kill the motivation to finish it. It has relit that art monkey that i had on my back when i was younger. I am a little more sure of my skills. Though that stint at MOCAD did throw some humbling experience that i needed! An hour to create work is just not enough! People really don’t know how much time it takes to draw. You need revenue to keep yourself in business. Money is a necessary component in life. I always knew you were going to have to charge some commission. The sooner you do that the easier artists can adjust to the change. Artists’ have to realize that supporting their galleries or web gallery is part of the process. Keeping a strong gallery is mutually a benefit for all involved. I see no problem in this. Nothing is free! Nothing worth having is free. Thank you for all that you are doing! It has given me back that art monkey. I sure did miss it."

    During this quarantine, I stepped away from painting for a couple of months to collaborate with a friend on songwriting. What started as a parlor game called Exquisite Corpse (google it if your not familiar) became a full length album that we just recently released digitally on every streaming and purchasing platform with the help of nubrecords.com and CDBaby. Check it out wherever you stream your music or go to our site for easy links to various points of interest. Thanks, I look forward to hearing EC members feedback. The band is Covid Bros., the album is called Essential Works, and our site is https://CovidBros.band Stay safe and wear a mask.

    Hello everyone. We (The Loft Fine Art) have an event on March 14th that we will need large/various sized free-standing easels for. Does anyone know of an organization (or fellow artist-yourself?) who may be willing to lend us easels? We may be open to renting them, but would prefer to keep our cost down. Any advice or direction is welcome! Thank you.

    @thomasgrubba Can you please tell us more about what the artists' set up will be for the Mix With a Maker/Interior Design event? Table, wall space, etc. I don't see anything like that in the event description.

    I added a new portfolio of art in my clients’ homes. I always ask the client to send me a picture. I find it interesting how my aesthetic seems to compliment so many different styles. I thought adding this as a unique portfolio may help interior designers visualize sculpture in a home. What do you think? Is this useful?

    Hello Artists, This was a post I put up in Facebook and Andrea would like me to share it with all of us. I want to add here that most insurance companies are waving co pays for counseling and all are covering telehealth sessions (telephone or video.) If you or someone you know needs someone to talk to please let me know. 510-410-3519. Be safe everyone..... I'm hoping everyone is staying safe in these uncertain times. I would like to share some of the insights I've gained working with both my trauma and mid-grade underlying anxiety and those of my clients. There's many factors to our collective trauma right now, the financial aspects of this are very real, not just in the short term but what it looks like in 3-6 months. The problem is that no one knows, and the human brain is not meant to tolerate the unknown very well, hence religion, philosophy, science, etc. Through my research it seems the best thing we can do is maintain a schedule and focus on the things we can control. That isn't necessarily big things, washing dishes and taking walks are taking control. In any traumatic event our ability to take action is the number one indicator of mitigating the trauma. It doesn't help to overly worry about what will be. Of course we are all worried about our future, both individually and collectively. And while checking the news for information is helpful in our age of constant updates in real time it has become exhausting. It's best to limit the amount of exposure you have to media outlets. Check in 2-3 times a day max. And stay away from opinion oriented outlets. Right now they're just opinions, again no one knows what this holds for humanity. I'm trying to remain optimistic, that all of us have the opportunity to focus on what is important in our lives, really understand the interconnections our lives are based on and remain compassionate in our response to the unknown. The more we can think about social distancing and self isolation as an action, the more we retain control over our (and others) lives even though it may not seem that way. My thoughts are with all of us....
