The Artist Self-Portrait

As I paint my last painting of the year, a self-portrait, I thought I would investigate the artist self-portrait as a genre.

The earliest self portrait reported was in 1433, see below.

Portrait of a Man (Self Portrait?),[1] also often known as Portrait of a Man in a Turban, or in a red turban, etc., is an oil painting by the Early Netherlandish master Jan van Eyck, from 1433, may well be the earliest known panel self-portrait.[1]

Many of you might recognize Frida Kahlo's self-portrait below.

This is where my self-portrait is right now.... in process...looking at the above photos, I see that I have a long way to go!

Committed to my Art

Commitment in the Clouds.Digital  Phone Art.
Copyright 2013 Mary Rush Gravelle.
True confessions... I committed to my art, officially to myself, on September 4, 2013. Ever since, I seem to have gone underground. So, what's going on? Why have I not been able to come to the surface and perform?

I will just throw my thoughts out here since it is my blog about my art notes and thoughts. So... it must be because deep down inside somewhere I don't believe that I deserve to prosper from doing what I love. I seem to have effectively punished myself for the past 3-1/2 months.

Fly Free, Digital Phone Art.
Copyright 2013 Mary Rush Gravelle.
I have done a couple of very small plain air paintings, on recycled cardboard of all things. I must have bought into the "starving artist" syndrome and internalized it on a deep level.

I packed up everything, placed most of it in storage, and moved from Tucson to Prescott, and landed in Cottonwood, Arizona.  I still don't have all of my art supplies and canvases in one place.

I have allowed my thoughts, my commitment, my self-confidence to waiver. I think I have been shrinking myself so I didn't have to actually live up to my highest art potential. Ouch! On some level, I have been playing small for a long time and especially since I profoundly made the commitment to self and to my art. I must step up to the plate, stand tall, take back my power. I am a creator, after all!

Shrinking Backward While Taking Steps Forward.

Okay, in my own defense, as I'm posting my phone art images on this post, I realize that I have not stopped creating altogether. I have been wildly creating new phone art. So, perhaps, I have not been totally underground. I still allow myself to delight in the creative process. Hmmmm... this makes me feel much better.

Today, I recommit... to my art. I allow my art to prosper me financially. I hope I have something more to contribute to next week's blog, like a new painting! Thanks for listening.

Will Sell Art for Money

Especially during this time of year, I see many different forms of fundraising, including panhandlers. I have often wanted to grab a torn piece of cardboard and make myself a sign.

Given the status and often romantic image of the Starving Artist, I thought of it as fitting. Then, I would compete for a place to stand, hold my sign, and wait for my jar to fill up with cash.

As an artist, I work for money just like any other profession. However, I see the general consensus of our culture that seems to think that the work of the artist is merely play. As a product of this culture, I have bought into this belief and romantic grief-stricken notion that I must suffer as an artist.

So, here is my sign. Please send cash. This will elevate my status and renew my belief that I too can earn a living from doing important work in the world. Or, if you prefer, buy the print at www.mary-gravelle.artistwebsites.com.

Give the Gift of Art

Give the gift of art this holiday season. Your gift will create happiness, gratitude, and joy in the heart of the artist, the recipient of your gift, and in your heart as well.

I just sold an 11 x 14 print of Vortex from my online print store. I am grateful to the buyer as the profit from this sale paid for my next year's membership to my online store. I will be able to offer prints of my artwork now for another year. With more sales, I could pay my rent, my bills, fill up my gas tank, and buy more art supplies. Selling art is how I can earn a living as an artist from doing my work.

Consider gifting yourself with art, as this buyer did. She intends to hang it above her mantle. Is there a space in your home that could use some added energy and pizzazz? Who could you make happy this year with a gift of art? Link to my online store: www.mary-gravelle.artistwebsites.com.

Visual Arts and Healing


Number Six (from my numberical series)
24 x 24 inches, mixed-media on wood

The Visual Arts have the ability to heal... "In 1 study, surgery or critical care patients who participated in guided imagery or had a picture of a landscape on their wall had a decreased need of narcotic pain medication relative to their counterparts and left the hospital earlier."

Consider the painting on the left, Number Six. Can you imagine being penetrated by the sharp edges of the Star of David? Not in a physical way, perhaps, but in a mental or spiritual way.

Gaze at the shape and let it change you somehow. Imagine it spinning, side to side. Imagine it moving closer to you like a buzz saw. Then, imagine the shape moving backwards inviting you to join it. What are the remaining parts of the painting doing? Do any memories pop up? What are you feeling? Perhaps you feel something but cannot put words to it. Healing on some level has begun. A new appreciation of some aspect of your life will appear. Be on the look out for new things happening.

Take note of how this art piece, or any other art piece has touched you somehow. Is that not healing? If we allow ourselves to be touched and transformed by the arts, can we find a newfound respect for the arts on the whole? Can we allow ourselves to spend money to buy art because of its essential nature? Art is nowhere mere decoration. It is stuff that can pierce open new vistas within your heart, mind, and spirit. Will you let it in?

Plein Air Painting Sans RV Camper

A friend recently inspired me to paint outside. This is what is called en plein air, or in plain air.

My canvases are in storage. Instead of buying more, I recycled a white cardboard box. I cut out two of the best sections for painting. The rest of the box became my seat. I had taken my portable paint box from storage during my last trip.

I set up across the street from a beautiful sight in Cottonwood, Arizona, looking toward Sedona. The mountains span a wide horizon.

I painted most of the scene and was preparing to paint my favorite part, the sky. Just then, an RV camper pulled up dead center covering 80 percent of my view! Before I could open my mouth in protest, the dude scrambles into the back of the camper. So, the painting received an intuitive and imaginary sky and finish to the foreground.

The fall colors are stunning right now. The color pallet in this painting is new for me as I normally end up painting with pinks, reds, and purples.

Sans RV Camper, Cottonwood, Arizona, approx. 6 x 12 inches, Acrylic on Recycled Cardboard. $60.00. Contact me, mary@maryfineart.com.

Until next week... Buy art, appreciate art, make art.

Mary Rush Gravelle is an artist creating in Cottonwood, Arizona with her beloved cat, Sir Kitty.

Dreams Passions and Affluence

This week includes of a repost of a video I did two years ago. Thank you to my dear friend, Kaleo Selah, who commented on it just two days ago. It helps me to re-member what I say so I can re-gather and re-create my intentions.

Thank you, Kaleo, for also commenting on another post and for stringing these two together. It is a photo of Tyra Banks, who says, "Don't chase the money, even if you want to be a banker. Chase the Dream. Chase the Passion." It gives me insight into creating affluence. I have always had a huge passion for my art and Igniting Your Intentions. I now have a huge dream for both. Perhaps this will help me in creating my dreams of having affluence and allowing myself to have the dreams that my passion keeps alive.


My latest, newest painting. I have a huge dream for this new series of paintings: From Phone Art to Canvas, Happy Art. It is a new dream, so the plans will be revealed when the time is right. This one, second in the series, is called Sunny Disposition, 36 x 36 x 1.5 inches, mixed media on canvas. Copyright 2013 Mary A. Gravelle and Mary Rush Gravelle.
The video above: Nov. 7, 2011. Mary A. Gravelle shares her ramblings on her Monday morning blog, My Art Notes. Today she talks about the affluent artist, quantum mechanics, and portrait painter, Alice Neel.

My Early Southwest Landscape Paintings


Simplicity, 48 x 48 Dyptych, Oil on Wood.
This was my first landscape painting of Oracle, AZ.
Copyright 2006, Mary A. Gravelle

Today, I wanted to share two of my early landscape paintings I did when I first moved to the Southwest in 2006. The landscape blew me away. It was expansive and breathtaking. I had never painted a landscape painting before, nor had ever wanted to. But, I had to paint this beautiful landscape that I was excitedly photographing everyday in my awe of it.

It was a scary venture because I had just completed my fourth semester of painting at Manchester Community College in Manchester, Connecticut. My dear and awesomely talented painting professor, Rick Harden, dissuaded his students from painting landscape paintings. He said that one had to be really good at it because there are so many landscape painters already out there, not to mention the masters that we had studied.

As luck would have it, during many coffee shop visits, I befriended and enlisted the critique help of an art professor from Western New Mexico University, Dan Davidson. Anyone who knows Dan, knows he knows how to critique. It's his middle name. After several of his critiques, I decided I was good to go. One of his best comments to me was, "Well, at least you have some raw talent." Ha. Thanks, Dan! He helped me a lot, though. So, here we go...

A Visit with Salusa Glassworks Inc

Artists Open Studio Tour Prescott AZ
Oct 4, 5, 6, 2013

On my way to the park to walk Sir Kitty, I saw a sign that led me to the first studio, one that I had planned to visit after our walk.

I stopped in, met and, visited with Emma and Bandhu S. Dunham at Salusa Glassworks, Inc.

Emma is what every artist needs: the marketer, organizer, and generally the brains, nuts, and bolts behind the art. I enjoyed chatting with her and getting to know what the artists were doing.

They were demonstrating their craft of glass-blowing. Bandhu was busy making pickles under strict orders from Emma. They were short 150 pickles for a wholesale order.

The other artist, which I am sorry to say, I never got his name, was busy explaining to a studio visitor on making glass beads.

Other favorite glass projects are the spheres and glass houses. See photos.

Prescott Artists Open Studio Tour: Cathy Gibbons & Mary Schulte

Prescott Artist's Open Studio Tour
Oct 4, 5, 6, 2013

Cathy Gibbons and Mary Schulte
6th Street Studios
Prescott Arizona

Artist, Cathy Gibbons, and I share a common artistic inspiration. She, too, began painting the magnificent Arizona landscape after moving to Arizona.

I particularly liked her small landscapes, which were focused on smaller portions of the landscape, such as a flower or tree.

This makes sense since her favorite subject to paint is the portait. The mini landscapes are portraits of nature. Her love of the human portrait is apparent when viewing her paintings, examples surround her in the photo below.

Mary Schulte creates whimsical sculpture, mosaics, jewelry, and fiber arts. 

I was drawn to her hand-dyed wearables. Some of the necklines received hand sewn treatments which endeared them to me. 

I loved the pinks, browns, and beige toned items.

Blooming Painting Postcard for Marketing My Art

Postcards to Market My Art

As an artist, I think it is invaluable to send out postcards regarding my art. About a month ago, I sent a postcard out about my painting, Blooming. I sent it to my art collectors, potential new collectors, and a few select friends and family members.

I have not sent anything in the mail for a couple of years. I thought it was time to send out something tangible that people can look at and touch. If I'm lucky, they will love it and put it on their fridge or frame it and put it up somewhere in their homes or offices. And, if I'm really lucky, someone will actually purchase the original painting.

Combining efforts of newsletters, blogs, website, Facebook, and Twitter, along with snail mail, I am bound to cover my bases enough in order to keep my art in their awareness.

Do you think this approach will help in building my relationships with my current and future art collectors?

Do you have any other brilliant ideas for marketing art?

The Artists Hand

Mountain Spirit Gallery, Prescott, Arizona
I recently walked into Mountain Spirit Gallery in my new home town of Prescott, Arizona. The owner and photographer is Ron Evans. His work drew me in.

I walked pass the gallery on my way to my car yesterday. But, something caught my eye. I decided to take a look. Wow. Impressive. His photographs line the walls. He carries other local artists' works in various media.

He has printed his works large scale on gallery-wrapped canvas. The colors are sharp and bold. I'm guessing that he has tweaked the colors in Photoshop. They are stunning to say the least. It was my first experience with photographs where I could feel the photographer's presence. What an extraordinary feeling.

As I looked at each one, I felt him walking the landscape with a discerning eye, looking to capture the perfect essence of the place. I cannot say enough about this experience with his photography. He has a special gift, I believe. Somehow, he manages to coax the viewer into experiencing the landscape on a level beyond most photography. I keep wondering how he does it.

I have often heard people say that they like to see the artist's hand in a painting. I never really knew why until now. In contrast, I have also heard that the artist should never be a part of the artwork as it now belongs to the viewer.

I think in the past, I have worked to keep my artist's hand out of the work. Currently, I think I am heading in the direction of leaving my imprint on the work somehow. You might be able to see me in my current phone art paintings. What do you think?
Sunny Disposition, 36 x 36 x 1.5 inches, Mixed-media on Canvas. Copyright 2013 Mary Rush Gravelle.
Questions:
  1. Can you see my presence in my current paintings?
  2. Should the artist be 'seen' in the work of art somehow? Or is it better for the artist to keep themselves out of it? Is it even possible for an artist to stay out of the work?
  3. Have you ever had an experience like this with a work of art, whether it is photography or otherwise? Can you explain how it felt?
Check out Ron Evans amazing photography work on his website.

Moving on Down the Road to Prescott Arizona

I'm on the road right now, relocating to Prescott, Arizona. At least, that is the plan. That is where I am right now, in the Prescott Library with 17 minutes remaining.

I have made a full commitment to my art and writing. Tucson did not seem to be the right place for me in terms of furthering my art career. So, I packed up the car and Sir Kitty and hit the road for Prescott.

As I entered town on Tuesday evening, it was like watching a Frankenstein movie. A valley was visible, forming a V in the center of two mountains with the road going right between them. A storm was brewing with big gray clouds. I was a little frightened. That's where I'm headed? Blue skies where I am right now, just before the entry. Lightening bolts from both sides of the V... Whoa!

I entered as I continued on my road path. A flash flood made it impossible to hear the friendly GPS woman announcing where to turn. It was raining so hard, I could not see. Sir Kitty planted himself behind my back between me and the seat, hunching me toward the steering wheel. Then, my phone, along with my beloved GPS, died.

So, there I was, not a clue as to where I was. All I knew was that I had arrived at my new destination of Prescott, Arizona. I had never even visited the place before. I drove around and around, trying to get my bearings from whence I came. Then, I passed the cutest downtown with town square.

As the rain dissipated, I looked up and was totally amazed. There a full double rainbow hugging my new town. This was no ordinary rainbow. It was the brightest rainbow I have ever seen. And it lasted forever.

So, my art supplies are still in Tucson. I'm looking for a place to live. I'm scouting the area. I'm trusting that Prescott will prosper me.
