With the busy times of the holidays coming up, one can find it difficult to stay artistically self-inspired. To avoid falling into a dull dead-end, WRAP presents a list of possible ways to remained motivated. Check it out below:
1. Set goals (and keep them) - Making goals for yourself can affirm your accomplishments. Think of them as a quest. Start small and work yourself up to the larger, long-term goals!
2. Take time for yourself - Holiday time means gathering with family and friends, which can make you lose sight of yourself. Feel free to go on a walk alone, watch a movie, anything! Just make sure to take care of yourself during the winter holidays.
3. Seek inspiration extrinsically and intrinsically - Fuel your creative fire with pictures, videos, posters, media, other Artists’ work, or anything else that inspires you. Keep a file of successful artist stories that you read from time to time if that helps. Also make sure to look inside and use your own working ideas to motivate yourself.
4. Seek accountability - When other are aware of our goals, it can boost our desire to complete them. Post your goals on a message board or tell a friend what you want to accomplish during the holiday season. Ask your trusted friend to check in on your progress!
5. Just take action - Easier said than done but just do it!
Why is art so expensive?
Earlier this month, a piece by Edward Hopper titled "Chop Suey" sold for $91,875,000 at Christie's in New York. Painted in 1929, "Chop Suey" is likely inspired by the restaurant scene in New York as well as other cities Hopper traveled.
This auction brought in $317.8 million in total which raises the question, why is art so expensive? The answer; there are a variety of reasons. Associating a cost to a piece of art is difficult. Art is subjective and evokes different responses from each viewer, making such an objective concept arduous.
The video below breaks down the steps behind calculating a price for a piece like Edward Hopper's.
