Painting a Day Blogs Take Stickability

By September 4, 2006

Follow me on:

You've heard about the artists who've been successful with their painting a day blogs and you've decided to give it a try. You've set up your blog, you're creating a painting a day, you've set up the auctions on eBay, yet no-one's buying... So what's wrong? Are your paintings terrible? Are your prices too high? Or is it because you simply haven't been doing it long enough?

In her blog Making a Mark artist Katherine Tyrrell has analysed the recipe for success with painting a day blogs and also takes a look the stickability factor. She says: "I think maybe too little attention has been paid to the fact that a lot of the people who are now enjoying success with sales associated with their daily painting blogs - or other art projects - didn't necessarily achieve success straight away." It takes stickability: the determination to work hard, continue through failure, and to keep at it every day. Read more about stickability and painting a day blogs...

For those readers wishing an overview of the Painting-A-Day discipline and lists of artists who practice it, I’ve recently written a pair of articles that discuss the topic. This first is an eBay guide that provides an overview and some background, and the second is a Squidoo.com lens that includes links to about 20 Painting-A-Day artists’ blogs.

You have some excellent information listed here.
I started painting daily after being inspired by Duane Keiser and others. It’s been a rewarding experience as an artist and it’s also improving my visibility on the web.
Micah R.Condon keeps an updated list with images from many painters who are painting daily. Here’s the link to his blog – Daily Painters.
