Problem Solving with Creativity and Passion

lfisler : August 31, 2015 9:42 am : AMO Art Chat

Last week our show headed over to Paris, well not physically unfortunately for me. Karen Whitworth joined us from Paris to talk about problem solving with creativity and passion. It was an interesting talk and Karen’s positive energy is infectious.

Karen mentioned how she lived in Alaska and the challenges she faced trying to sell her art and find collectors. It is clear that Karen loves to paint and that she enjoys her work.  Karen pointed out that she is always thinking of ideas to use her artwork as well as looking for new ways to sell her originals.  Karen has a number of product lines, from selling Alaska wildflower seeds to baggage tags for luggage.  We discuss how she came up with these ideas and she provides information on how she researches each idea to determine its viability.

I encourage you to listen to this art chat and decide if expanding your work into other possible incomes is something that you would like to do. If you would like to visit Karen’s website to see all she does with her artwork, click here.

    I want to thank you for your interviews, I found your podcasts last summer, and have followed you ever since.

    There is a quietness and respectfulness in your interview style which makes it very easy to concentrate and absorb the information in the interview.

    I am hoping you will have followup interviews with many of the people, I just listened to Quang Ho, he and David Leffel, Sherrie McGraw, Jeff Watts, CW Mundy, Kevin McPhearson…very good. The way David, Sherrie, Jeff and Quang were able to impart information in such a short time, was amazing.

    Keep up the good work.
    Thank you again.

      Dear Marsha,
      Thank you so much for you wonderful comments and for following the show. I appreciate your compliments very much. I’m also very honored that these wonderful master artists have been so giving and willing to do the show. Their generosity and artists like you who listen keep us doing what we’re doing. In this internet age it is hard to know how folks are feeling about what you are doing–except for the numbers of listeners that keep returning to listen, so I’m very happy to hear that you are finding them so useful. We’ve got some great shows scheduled in the coming months and we do plan to follow up with a number of artists to have them on the show again.

      It truly is my pleasure and honor to do the show.
      Thank you again.

  2. I recently found your wonderful art Chat’s channel. You had mentioned an interview with Sherry Mcgraw and David Leffel regarding edges and although I have looked, I have been unable to find this particular interview. I was wondering if it took place and if not, do you plan on maybe conducting this interview in the future? Thank you!

  3. Thank you so much Linda! I really enjoy listening to your show, they are so informative!
