The Monday Art Note #3


Monday Art Note # 3 — ArterNet Art — Online Art Gallery. 14/06/21

The third issue of a new weekly newsletter called Monday Art Note.
 Our Monday Art Note is designed to read in around a minute or so
 and will give you some simple, positive tips to experience more fun, joy
 and happiness in your life.
 Plus, it has some interesting and
 unusual facts and trivia about famous artists.
 I hope you find it useful.


You can do a lot more than you think you can
 Pierre-Auguste Renoir, (born February 25, 1841, Limoges, France — 
 died December 3, 1919, Cagnes) one of the founders of the
 Impressionist movement, suffered from rheumatoid
 arthritis starting in 1892.
 Amazingly, Renoir continued to paint for the last 20 years
 of his life despite the pain
 and limitations he suffered.
 Renoir could still hold a brush in his hand but required
 an assistant to place it there first. With his brush in place,
 Renoir had an assistant stand by to arrange his palette
 as he painted. He also worked with a moving canvas so
 he could create larger works.
 Contrary to popular belief, the bandages seen on Renoir’s
 hands in photos from his later years weren’t for strapping
 brushes to his hands.
 Instead, they prevented his curled
 fingers from digging into his palms.
 One of the interesting things about you and me is that
 we don’t realise that we can do a lot more than we think
 we can.
 Here’s a good way to test this yourself…
 Try reading these jumbled up sentences:
 Acocdrnig to an elgnsih unviesitry sutdy the oredr of letetrs in
 a wrod dosen’t mttaer, the olny thnig thta’s iopmrantt is that
 the frsit and lsat ltteer of eevry word is in the crorcet ptoision.
 The rset can be jmbueld and one is stlil able to raed the txet
 wiohtut dclftfuiiy.
 You should be able to read this very easily.
 Which goes to show your brain is actually very clever and
 can do a lot of things you didn’t realise it can do.
 Action Exercise:
 Take a few minutes this week to write down 10 things that
 that you are really good at that you sometimes forget about.
 (When you focus on the things you are good at doing you
 tend to feel a lot more positive about yourself and life.)
 Here at ArterNet Art one of the things we are super
 passionate about is helping artists do well.
 I’ve been an artist and a business owner myself for over 30 years and I’m
 committed to helping independent artists sell their
 art online and want them to get handsomely paid for doing this.
 So we are going to give you a lot of practical advice
 on how to do this.
 You would have received your first marketing tips for artists in our
 fortnightly newsletter which I sent out last Thursday called Art Marketing Magic.
