CANDYcolored studio podcast episode 219:
are you a frequenter of art & etsy style markets? we have some really great ones in northern utah – my favorites are the utah art market and the beehive bazaar. collectors can discover new local artists by enjoying these handmade market venues. a red pill based on a recent joe rogan podcast interview with bret weinstein that asks us if we have a line for forgiveness and if we've come to terms with our choices. and my latest list of things i’m avoiding so that i have time to paint. sometimes the best way to get more time to do the things we really want to be doing is to minimize what we’re committing to do – asking ourselves, do i REALLY have to do this? what would happen if i didn’t do it?!

a commission nightmare, when artists should use various revenue streams, inappropriate material in our schools, big tech & government agencies controlling narrative
sharing my latest nightmares, lol -- probably the most bizarre yet. as an artist, is the income you're bringing in coming from various sources? how do you know which ones are best for you and where to put your time? do you have kids in public schools and how is your community ensuring that proper material is available to them? did your public schools participate in "banned book week" and how did you feel about it? i've got a ton of questions on this subject -- not a lot of answers, but i thought we could put our heads together on the topic and see what we think. speaking of opinions, did you see the recent senate hearing with big tech, josh hawley of missouri and louisiana's ron johnson? they revealed weekly email communication between government agecies (cdc) and big tech facebook (meta) regarding misinformation and how to controll/censor certain topics, opinions and accounts.
studio update, opportunities for artists & collectors, and “i haven't been seeing you on instagram, are you ok?!!”
how are you?! have you been busy "putting out fires" like we were last week?!! if so, sending soo much love & strength! my sister called last week and said, "there's something in the air..." and i think she's right LOL! fall for me is always a time to reassess and this fall seems to be one that does not want to be ignored! i'll be sharing a studio update as well as some opportunities near and far for artists & collectors. i'll also be addressing the constant question, "i haven't been seeing you on instagram, are you ok?!!” so many deep things i've been pondering and feel like it leads to deeper questions about our society and culture. so enjoy and know that you're loved!!
