C is for Capture—as in someone’s imagination. What makes an artist different from another artist, a musician different from any other, a writer more interesting than the others? They have the ability to capture the attention of the viewer, listener, reader. Have you ever noticed, while browsing through a stack of paintings, one or two catches your eye? What is it about that particular painting that drew you in? What makes you buy one book and put another back on the shelf? You have to have something that captures the attention of the buyer. Ahh, but here’s the thing; people have different tastes and desires. What one person may see as beauty in art, another may not find it remotely attractive. So how do I build an audience, you may ask? Put your work out in as many places as you can. Increase your exposure. Find YOUR audience, and Capture their imagination.
