New Artwork To Start The Week!

As time goes by we sometimes get distracted from what truly matters to us.

It’s been nearly two months since I last posted on the blog and yes, I’m horribly, terribly disappointed in myself.

But that’s life.

Needless to say, I haven’t stopped creating. So to get myself back on the blog and get back into writing, why not a post of some new art.

My focus is starting to narrow with combining the mandala art and nature-inspired art.

Who doesn’t love a mandala-infused tiger? The point to creativity is to express yourself.

I will admit I’m hopelessly caught between creating what I want to create vs. what I think will do well on social media. Which of course you can find me on Instagram and Twitter @vvicariart.

But art and creativity isn’t about everyone else. Art and creativity is about personal leadership. It’s an exploration into our own minds.

A deep dive into our souls.

Ok, maybe a little too deep for a Monday evening post but I’m inspired by the New York streets outside my window.

What’s more of a contradiction than creating wildlife and mandala art in the middle of Manhattan?

As always, stay creative and don’t hold yourself back. Create, design, write, what brings you joy. That’s point.

How To Write A Killer Intro For Your Art Post

Content Marketing

Art, photography, images tell a story. But what about the story behind the image?

Anyone can post an image of their art or a really beautiful photograph. But it’s the story behind the image that separates the artist from everyone else.

You as the artist create because you want to. You want to share and you want to teach. Customers and art lovers look at your work, not just for the beauty, but for the experience.

Your writing sells that experience. That experience starts with a good, strong and clear introduction.  Continue reading How To Write A Killer Intro For Your Art Post
