The real reason artists need to blog

I had a realization as I was reading an article that was sent to me by my latest client. You know sometimes things just need to be said with a certain combination of words and then they hit home. This article was written by Chris Tyrell for Opus Framing and Art Supplies and is called Three Career Concerns. My realization came when reading part one Stories and Value, here is the part that got me…

The point of this exercise is that very often buyers of art (especially those who do not buy art often) want to have something to say about the work they buy because when they put their work on display in their homes or offices they want to have something intelligent to say in response to the compliments it generates. They value being able to respond by saying such things as, “the artist told me that …” or “the inspiration of the work is an interesting story….” Having an insightful anecdote or two to tell admirers of the purchased art provides a lot of the emotional benefit to making the purchase.
