It’s about knowing who you’re talking to.

Il s’agit de comprendre à qui vous parlez.

For more about why it’s so important to communicate well about your art, check out this video. And for a comprehensive and straight forward guide to writing about your art, I recommend Vicki Krohn Amorose’s Art-Write! (Vicki recently interviewed me about my art marketing e-book, but that’s not why I’m suggesting her book. I recommend it because it’s excellent!)

Very interesting. I have had similar experiences when asked a question via email about my art. It does make it easier when you are communicating with a real person. Great tip! Hopefully I will use it. I am so reticent to apply for anything in part because of this stumbling block. thanks Gwenn smile

Very true, Cathie.  It’s hard to think what is interesting until someone else asks about it!
