Galleries. Prizes. Competitions. Art fairs. People.
Artists face an obstacle course life. Gates and gatekeepers. Passion and funds. Time and lots of uphill. Much uphill pushing and striving. Often thin skin needing thick impervious layers on layers to survive the howling winds of fashion and fickleness. Finding favour. Falling out of. I used to enter a lot of art competitions... nowadays I am very selective.
Judy Cassab – artist, survivor. In the midst of a life marked by tragedy, deprivation, loss…. great loss… Cassab pursued her art. She won two Archibald prizes. When asked what she had learned from her experience she replied: “perhaps a sense of proportion. I know what a disaster is - and it is NOT a bad review for an exhibition”.

Richard Claremont - artist. A peek into my studio. How I think. How I paint. How I run my art business. Bite sized daily chunks of goodness. Just me talking aloud, really. Join me for a chat over a cuppa.
