Art is your Legacy (5 benefits of collecting art)

5 benefits of collecting art http://schulmanart.blogspot.com/2016/06/art-is-your-legacy-5-benefits-of.html
Have you ever gotten a message from beyond the grave?

Shortly after Mother’s Day, I got a phone call from a stranger. 

He had received one of the postcards I had sent out to art collectors to celebrate spring had arrived at his home. I addressed the postcard to his wife who had purchased some of my original artwork.

My heart sank when he told me she had passed away.

“I’m so sorry. I will take her name off my list,” I apologized, feeling horrible that I had unknowingly caused him pain.

But to my surprise, he thanked me for sending the postcard. He explained that receiving the postcard brightened his day and it almost felt like it was a gift from his late wife. He asked to remain on my mailing list, so he could continue to receive my postcards and said he may consider collecting more art from me in the future. You can see the art she collected in the picture below.

"Spring Blossoms" by Miriam Schulman (art collected by the late Elizabeth Deaux)→ canvas prints are available HERE

You see, his wife was an avid collector of original art during her lifetime and all the art decorating their home comforted her husband after she had passed. She had collected a triptych of three oil paintings, called Spring Blossoms. Although the original is now part of their private collection, canvas prints are available HERE.

Art is part of her legacy.

A Grandmother’s Art is her Legacy


My husband’s grandmother was also an artist.

When she passed the adult grandchildren divided up their favorite paintings. Each one held special meaning to them  that stoked a warm memory of when their grandmother painted it. Although she wasn’t a professional artist, her art played an important role in the family’s memories of her and the farm that she painted. If she ever thought she wasn’t good enough to paint, her family would beg to differ based simply on the memories she gave them and the place of honor they bestowed to her artwork in their homes.

My husband chose a gentle watercolor of children looking out a window at a flock of birds. The children are painted very loosely, not in a formal portrait manner. But each time he looks at the painting, which now hangs in our bedroom, he is brought back to his childhood memories on the farm.

Art is part of her legacy.

5 Benefits of Collecting Art


Whether you collect the artwork of others, create your own or a bit of both, art becomes a piece of you and your family’s personal history. It’s a part of your life here and now, and it becomes a legacy when you’re gone.

1. Art is your legacy


It helps piece together what you love. Your personality. What you value. Your footprint on this earth.

Here are some of the others reasons to collect art...

2. Art makes us feel good


There’s no doubt that one of my favorite reasons to collect art is how it makes you feel. From delight to excitement, nostalgia to love and relaxation to pride, the important thing about the artwork you surround yourself with is your interaction with it—how it makes you feel.

3. Art reflects your values


Pieces of art resonate differently for each of us. The art you purchase and decorate your home with forms a tapestry of your personal style and tastes. It can help people understand what you value.

4. Be a patron of the arts


You don’t have to spend millions on a Picasso to be a patron of the arts. The art you invest in today becomes your family's cultural legacy tomorrow. You make a real difference when you support the arts, because you make future paintings possible.


5. Join the art community


You build connections among like-minded people when you take art classes, follow artists and visit galleries. Your art tribe becomes a welcome place for social interaction between fellow art-lovers and collectors. I witness this every day as I watch the nourishing and supportive interaction in our Facebook groups among those enrolled in my art classes at The Inspiration Place.

Art is powerful. Whether you create original works or surround yourself with the work of others...art is part of your legacy.

5 Surprising Tricks for Inspirational Breakthroughs (based on science)

I know what it’s like to be starved creatively. Although art is now integrated into every aspect of my life, it hasn’t been that long since my life looked very different. In 2000, I worked at a high-powered hedge fund job that required long hours, and with a toddler at home and one on the way I barely had time to take a shower, much less any time to devote to art.

Missing my creative side


No doubt I was missing my creative side, and it had been years since I had touched my art supplies. I remember the thrill mixed with fear when I first started painting again in a corner of my kitchen table. I had the desire to get going but struggled to shed my corporate life to unleash my creativity.

Struggle for Fresh Inspiration


Even now, I sometimes struggle to find inspiration even though art is now my life’s work. In fact, sometimes it is even harder to come up with fresh inspiration when you create art on a more regular basis.

To help you overcome creative blocks, let’s take a look at the science of inspiration and the top ways I use it to get inspired.


The Science of Inspiration



Although In the past I have written about the magic of finding your creative muse, (see the magic of getting started or Invoking the Muse) scientists have shown that inspiration isn’t entirely spiritual or the result of being “breathed upon by God” as ancient civilizations thought. We can use this brain research to help us be more creative. Scientists identified the following times when our brains are poised for inspiration:
  • Memory triggers: When memories or thoughts are triggered in your mind spontaneously
  • Shake things ups: When you break beyond your usual way of thinking or viewing something, and see it in a new way
  • Motivation: When you are motivated to express an idea

Inspiration not only motivates you, but makes you feel good about what you’re doing. Since no one is counting on you to make a painting, it can sometimes be hard to get motivated to take the first step. (There will always be something that seems “more important” to get done.) But just like exercise, you know how good you feel doing it… your brain needs art to help you relax so here are some ideas to help you get inspired in unlikely places.


Inspirational Breakthroughs


When I’m in an inspiration funk or taking just too long to actually start a painting, here are some ways I break through.

Reconnect with your Inner Child

"Yasgur's Farm" watercolor by Miriam Schulman
>> collect prints

My father-in-law was a chicken farmer in the Catskills, just down the road a few miles from where the Woodstock Music Festival took place in 1969. Our family visits regularly, and my teenage son loves to spend time there helping Grandpa cut up wood or plant vegetables. When I visit the farm, I love fantasizing about my favorite children’s books and fairy tales.

The farm was actually my inspiration for my watercolor class Farm Animal Spirits, where we paint the animals in class that you see on my father-in-law’s farm and we will be painting the fuzzy yellow baby chicks that he raised, the cows that lived down the road, pigs like Wilbur from Charlotte’s Web and sweet baby lambs.

Daydream

When you’re trying to squeeze more errands in your day, get your work done or help your kids with their math homework, you must be laser focused. But when it comes to inspiration it is actually more productive to daydream.

So next time you are bored, resist the temptation to keep yourself busy checking status updates on Facebook and use that time to space out and dream.

Wash the Dishes

Just like daydreaming, your mind is more open to inspiring thoughts when you are not working. Computer work or bill paying should be focused on during your optimal hours (whatever that time is for you), but inspirational and ah-moments hit you most while doing repetitive tasks, like washing the dishes. I get the best sparks when I am taking a walk or a boring exercise class when my mind has wandered away from the downward dog.

Change It Up



When I spend too much time in my studio, I find my inspiration actually suffers. So to get inspired, you have to change up your routine. For me, a trip to New York City will usually fix that and the day off from my work means I come back re-energized and even more inspired.

Take what you usually do and change it, so that your brain is primed to be inspired. If you can’t take a whole day off to yourself just spend a few minutes to walk around the block or call a friend. (Just having a good old fashioned conversation can sometimes get those creative juices flowing.)

Inspiration can strike after the first stroke, so just get painting.

If I paint something that doesn’t work in my art journal, I just keep layering until I like what I see.

The only failure is never starting, so just do it. (tweet this)




Farm Animal Spirit Watercolor Class

To see how inspiration from visiting my father-in-law’s farm turned into an online art class, I hope you register for my Farm Animal Spirit watercolor class. This class is perfect for those who want to capture the personality and spirit of farm animals and to learn easy techniques to paint them so they look realistic, but not rigid or “cartoonish.”

the magic of getting started

What do you think is the hardest part of the creative process? Getting started or to keep going? Although both are hard, I argue getting started is always the hardest and there is a magic in just starting.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it~ Goethe (tweet this)


One of the reasons I am in love with collage is because I know I can always just start collaging - gluing down my inspirational bits- even when I am uninspired knowing that during the process the inspiration will find me.


Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.~Picasso (tweet this)


I believe that it is a great creative truth that inspiration will find you...but only if you are working. you cannot wait until you are "inspired" to start your art. You just have to begin.

I use this tenet to get my teenage son to do his homework. I know that getting started is always the hardest part. He cannot wait until "he is in the mood." Who was ever "in the mood" to write a paper about to Kill a Mocking Bird? Yes, it was a great book- but to write a persuasive essay- well pigs fill fly before a teenager will be "in the mood" to write that.

However, once he writes that first sentence, he may be in the mood to write another and then another. And one more until the creative well runs dry. So we put it away and then I have to force him to the kitchen table the next day to get started.

It is the same with art. Many make the mistake that because art is enjoyable that they can wait until they are "in the mood" to paint. But to make great art you have to work at it often because not everything you do will be a masterpiece. Like a writer, you will scrap many sentences and throw out rough drafts. Like a scientist there will be many failed experiments- canvases that you will not want to ever display. (don't be tempted to list these on ebay or give to your mother. If you don't like them, you should paint over them with something better.)

The Magic of getting started...


But we know that once we start we will happily be reunited with our muse... it is also like exercise.. the hardest part is getting to the gym. I liken it to the first peck the chick makes in her shell. 

Are you surprised to hear me compare my art to writing an essay or exercising? The creative process takes discipline and the magic is in the hard work.

In this blog post I share the secrets behind this poppy painting... come and see.
The secret behind the vibrancy of the flowers are watercolor markers. The watercolor markers are transparent color. Since it is a marker, the color is applied as pure pigment and not diluted with water. I used shades of red and pink to create the poppies. The transparent watercolor allows you to see through the color and enjoy the luscious layers underneath.

In order to make the poppies "pop", I white washed the background with diluted white acrylic paint. The paint was diluted with glazing medium. not water. You can still see the layers peeking through the white veil but they no longer compete with the flowers. I teach all these techniques on my free youtube channel SchulmanArt plus I also offer online classes at theInspirationPlace.net 

Mixed Media Madness is probably the best class to learn most of these techniques. If registration is not open now, then you can get on the waitlist here.

Some details you will notice in the collage layers are piano music. I love adding music to my collages as the music brings in an energetic force to the piece. You will also notice words and other snippets of pattern.

Bringing complex art in your home means you will have art that you never get tired of looking at as you notice something new every time you study the artwork. The colors are intended to cheer you up while bringing you a sense of calmness at the same time. →collect this art
The finished painting measures 20x20" and comes with a black floater frame. The original mixed media canvas comes framed and ready to hang on the wall so you can enjoy poppies all year long.

Here the painting is shown displayed over a Pottery Barn bed. All furniture, linens and accessories are from PotteryBarn. You can collect the painting at SchulmanArt.com

The Feng Shui of Elephant painting

feng shui elephant symbolismhttp://schulmanart.blogspot.com/2016/04/the-feng-shui-of-elephant-painting.html
Lately, I've been listening to podcasts as well as reading a lot about Feng Shui and I've been thinking about how that relates to my art.

What is Feng Shui?


Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese practice of aligning your stuff with its most positive energetic forces. The basic concept is that everything has energy. There are some things that will always give off "bad" energy...these are things like clutter, dirt, anything that is broken or negative.

And there are most positive energetic symbols.The art of Feng Shui is placing these energetic symbols where you will get the most positive impact.

Why this isn't just hocus pocus


Now before you dismiss this as hocus pocus, the real idea behind any of this is to create mindfulness around your environment. While the exact rules of Feng Shui may or may not matter, giving careful thought to the placement of all the objects in your house does matter. Not keeping clutter, dirt or broken or unnecessary objects around your home does matter. Placing beautiful uplifting art around your home does matter...and does shift the energy of your home.


Feng Shui and the Elephant


Since I recently completed this elephant painting, I wanted to give some thought to where someone might hang this painting in their home based on Feng Shui principles.

  • Want your kids to study harder or do better in school? Place the painting in your child's bedroom, or wherever she does homework. The elephant symbolizes knowledge and trust.
  • If you want to promote stability, place the elephant in the north of your home.
  • Elephants guard and protect the household. They guard the door and bar the chi energy from leaving. So with that in mind, you can hang this elephant in your foyer near the door.
  • Placing the elephant painting at the front door brings good luck, protection and strength to the household. Most feng shui practitioners believe that these elephants should have their trunks facing upwards as that represents prosperity, good luck and victory. 
  • The main rule for placing an elephant in your home is to always have the elephant facing into the room.

Invoking the Muse

Did you ever hear the story of how J.K Rowling came up with the idea for the Harry Potter series? She says "I was travelling back to London on my own on a crowded train, and the idea for Harry Potter simply fell into my head."

Have you heard of that concept before? I was recently reading a story about Gloria Vanderbilt and she was discussing her writings. The New York Times reported: "Of the erotic novel, “Obsession,” she said: “That was so much fun. It was almost as if somebody else wrote it and it just sort of fell on the page."

Gods, Angels and Muses


The ancient Greeks had an explanation for this, they felt that art and poetry came to use through the gods, or muses. Plato's Phaedrus described it as the "noble effect of heaven sent madness"


In her book, Big Magic Elizabeth Gilbert explains "In ancient Greece and ancient Rome people did not happen to believe that creativity came from human beings back then. People believed that creativity was this divine attendant spirit that came to human beings from some distant and unknowable source for distant and unknowable reasons. The Greeks famously called these divine attendant spirits of creativity ‘Daemons’. Socrates famously believed that he had a Daemon who spoke to him from afar. The Romans had the same idea but they called that sort of disembodied spirit a ‘Genius’, which was great because the Romans did not actually think that a genius was a particularly clever individual, they believed that a genius was this sort of magical divine entity who was believed to literally live in the walls of an artist’s studio … and who would come out and invisibly assist the artist with their work and who would shape the outcome of that work."

and for those looking for a painter's perspective Philip Guston said 

"I go to my studio every day, because one day I may go and the Angel will be there. What if I don’t go and the Angel came?"
I get that feeling sometimes when I paint. In other words, that the power is not mine. I think that is why sometimes I, we, get insecure with our work. Because we don't believe it is us who really created the art but some divine intervention. As a result, we worry we will never be able to invoke that muse again.

That is why I titled this painting Dante's Daffodils

Dante conceives of the Muses as effective allegories of his poetic talent, a talent he perceives to be a gift of the Gods. He recognizes that his art is beyond his innate poetic talent and need divine inspiration. 

(disclaimer: I never actually read Dante's Inferno. When I was a freshman in college, I was supposed to read it for my Freshman English class so I transferred into a different section of Freshman English just to avoid it. That may or may not have been a mistake.. but I did enjoy the Robert Frost we discussed in my class.)

How to grow a peony garden painting

mixed media flower art | floral art | pink peony painting  http://schulmanart.blogspot.com/2016/04/how-to-grow-peony-garden-painting.html
I am often asked how I can bear to sell my art...why don't I keep it? Part of what makes it easy to let go of my art and sell it is that I know that my best art will always be the next one that I paint. My favorite art in my collection is always my most recent art piece.

Is this really different than gardening? How could you bear to cut your flowers and make a bouquet except that you know the earth will replenish the flowers and spring will come again.

mixed media flower art | floral art | pink peony painting  http://schulmanart.blogspot.com/2016/04/how-to-grow-peony-garden-painting.html
As I paint, I love sharing sneak peeks of my art on instagram and on facebook. Sharing works in progress is not new to the art world. Although, it is a bit faster with the use of technology. Matisse used to send works in progress photos through the mail to the Cone sisters of Baltimore.


mixed media flower art | floral art | pink peony painting  http://schulmanart.blogspot.com/2016/04/how-to-grow-peony-garden-painting.html
There are a ton of artistic details layered into this mixed media art. In addition to the music and text layered into the main painting surface, the sides are also treated to a leopard print pattern. This elevates a traditional subject of pink flowers to the modern era. You'll want to display this art in a place where people can see it since it is a conversation starter. Let children in the room see how many hearts they can spot layered among the flowers. The adults will delight in discovering hidden messages throughout the artwork. >> collect a print of this art

Decorating Idea


Use this decorating idea to give you inspiration for how to hang the art in your home. As you can see, the art looks great on the gray neutral walls..would look equally at home on white walls. The pillows and pink side chair complete the decorator look without being matchy-matchy.

Decorating Credits


I found this image on House Beautiful and the bold and stylish Manhattan living room is decorated by Ashley Whitaker. Since most New York City apartments are quite small, the designer made the living room seem larger by using a single cushion on the sofa which is also convenient since no one falls into the cracks if you are seating three on the sofa! Hanging a large single painting above the sofa provides the same optical illusion. The painting in the 
actual room has been digitally replaced with my painting to help you visualize the art in your own home.

Designer Details


The acrylic coffee table adds a bit of modernity while also opening up the space. The article I read didn't say, but I would bet my money that it's a Stark carpet underneath. 

Poet's Peony Garden is a love poem in paint. Fill your home with the powerful vibration of love. 

There is only one original painting and it has already been sold but there are beautiful framed prints available to collect HERE
