Deborah Bigeleisen Demonstrating for one of her Group Classes

 

 

Deborah Bigeleisen shares her excitement with The Rickie Report, ” I’m giving 1-on-1 painting lessons via Zoom from my studio to yours!  My approach is ideal for beginners and established artists as well.  We’ll paint together on a subject that inspires and excites you ~ if you are a serious artist or just want to have some fun being creative!  For those who are new to Zoom, I will coach you through the process, which is not intimidating.   Zoom allows you to “share”/see my monitor so that we can address specific points.

 

 

 

Here’s how the classes work:

 

 

FIRST:  We talk by phone, get acquainted,  and talk about your goals. Then we arrange a lesson time.

We’ll also talk about materials, what you have, or if you are starting from scratch.

You can use either acrylic or oil paints.

SECOND:  You will text me or email me a jpg of the image that you want to paint along with a few words as to why you like it.  If you want to work on a painting in progress, and you are stuck, tell me why.

THIRD: When the lesson goes live:

I’ll be prepared in my studio to demonstrate any number of things from how to start a painting from a blank canvas, to showing you how to effectively use different size and shaped brushes, and how to achieve many different effects whether you are working in acrylics or oils.

I also use Photoshop as a teaching tool, and will have your work already uploaded to work on.

 

Cost:

Initial complimentary 1/2hr. session to get acquainted and for you to get a feeling for how the class works.

1/2 hr session: $30 

1 hour session: $50

Classes must be booked and paid for at least 24 hrs in advance

Payment:

Payment is required in advance of the session via Zelle or PayPal  or via her web site  www.deborahbigeleisen.com

Rickie Shares More Tips For Artists To Network And Art Patrons To Find New Connections With Creators

The Rickie Report has long considered networking a primary function of promoting the many creations of artists.  It is simply a good business practice!  After all, how will art lovers find your work to purchase?  We‘ve read numerous magazines (local, national and international) and newspapers ( in hand or digital), and think, “This is the perfect place for (add your name) to let people know about their (fill in the blank: artwork, jewelry, glass art,wood,hand sewn pocketbooks, sculpture,wearable art, classes, etc)”.  In this article we share some often overlooked opportunities for artists to share their news and for art patrons to find their newest purchase.  With 2017 already here – NOW is the time to NETWORK!

 

 

Network…Network…Network!

 

 

Opportunities for artists and art patrons to network:

 

 

The first place is The Rickie Report!

When we publish an article about an art event, an art organization or an individual artist, Art Patrons – TAKE NOTICE!  This is YOUR opportunity to meet creators.  Mingle, meet and get to know the current art scene! This is when you meet an artist whose work you enjoy and being collecting! Build a relationship, as the artist evolves, so will your art world!

 

Where else can you network?

 

 

Your college alumni publication

 

Artists:  Send a photo of you creating!  People are fascinated by your process.  Share!

 

Art Patrons:  Being in touch with someone who shared similar experiences, classes and good memories of college underscores the human need to connect.  The pride shared in these associations is a natural way to reach out to other alumni.

 

What to Include:

  • Your website
  • Email
  • Facebook addresses
  • A concise note
  • Include the date and department you graduated from
  • Phone number
  • 2-3 good quality photos
  • Upcoming Exhibits (print media is working a minimum of 6-8 weeks ahead)

HAVE SOMEONE ELSE PROOFREAD BEFORE you send!!!

 

Big Box Clubs, Organizations you belong to  (AARP, AAA, AMA, ADA…you get the idea)

Google “national associations”

Check out www.directoryofassociations.com

 

Artists: Did you ever wonder how these publications find  people to write stories about?  If YOU don’t tell them about YOUR STORY, then you are relying on someone else to do it for you!  (This approach is not usually successful….DO IT YOURSELF)!

 

 

Art Patrons:  You want to be the first to say you support this artist!  The excitement of acquisition includes knowing each artist’s personal story.  We are all eager to know the details about the creator of the work we love and appreciate.

 

 

What to Include:

  • 2-3 good quality photos of your work and one of you as you are creating.
  • In a concise note or email, remind the editor of your local connection. ( You’re a member of this Big Box Club, you shop there often, you live in the neighborhood that the magazine covers, you’ve created something so unique that the national magazine will miss out if they don’t cover your story).
  • Your Email
  • Your Website address
  • Your Facebook address
  • Your Phone number

 

 

 

 

The media can’t share your news

if they don’t know about you!

 

 

Local Newspapers, Blogs, and Magazines

Check out: www.blogtopsites.com

Artists:   Read your local print media as well as social media!  Who is writing about the visual arts?

  • Send an email and introduce yourself!
  • Call and introduce yourself.  
  • Invite people to your studio to tell them YOUR story and about YOUR creations!

 

Art Patrons:  Have you discovered a new creator?  According to life lessons learned in the sandbox, it is always nice to share!

“See What To Include” above

 

Magazines, Parade magazine,  and Blogs that highlight specialty items (Oprah Magazine, Good Housekeeping, Departures, etc)

 

Artists:  We personally know a number of LOCAL artists who have been highlighted in National magazines, International catalogues and Local news items that have propelled their success into the stratosphere!  How did they do it?

They wrote, they sent photos, they sent samples, they followed our advice… We encourage you to do the same!

Kristina Loaiza, Chef Concierge at The Brazilian Court Hotel shares, 

When I asked one of my more “seasoned” co-workers who has some experience in art, he told me, “I thought Deb was a great tour guide of the Norton. She was interactive and knowledgable about the pieces and exhibits. Deb has the ability to process art at a high level. Deb’s passion for the arts can transcend to reach all generations and evoke emotions you never thought art would make you feel.”

With

Deb LaFogg Docherty

 

"Captured Gaze" by Deborah LaFogg Docherty

“Captured Gaze” by Deborah LaFogg Docherty

 

 

Deb LaFogg Docherty’s art combines her great two loves: her love of nature and her love of painting. Her paintings strive to give people a glimpse of how animals live in the wild, raise their young, court and survive. She paints a picture of a secret world that many never get a chance to see. Deb’s quest to paint wildlife has taken her across the United States from the Everglades National Park in Florida to Denali National Park in Alaska. It has become an adventure she loves to share.

 

 

"Wood Storks" by Deborah LaFogg Docherty

“Wood Storks” by Deborah LaFogg Docherty

Her formal training began in college with a dual major in illustration and commercial art. She has continued to advance her work through master artist workshops. It is from them that she began to not only focus on the wildlife, but on the landscape in which they live. The use of light, color, composition, texture, and atmosphere help bring the viewer into the secret world of nature. She is always learning new ways to communicate this through her work. Deb’s paintings come to life in pastels, acrylics and oils.

 

"Waiting for Mom" by Deborah LaFogg Docherty

“Waiting for Mom” by Deborah LaFogg Docherty
