Art Supplies For Sketch Artist

How to be a subtle part of your artists world of creating amazing art is as simple as stocking up on supplies .

Often artist don't buy themselves the supplies they long for as they may not feel they are worthy, good enough to rationalize spending money on such things. If you live with and love an artist or budding artist you could be a greater asset to them than you know.  My artist is a bit of a closet artist, while the work she creates is amazing and jaw dropping she hides most of it away as if a secret she feels the need to protect from the rest of the world.  It is no doubt how strongly artist feel about their art and yet often don't give it the credit it is due.  They don't want a lot of praise or attention.  Often praise and attention can make some artist withdraw.  They may feel their art is a work in progress and they have yet to reach their full potential.  None the less the last thing we want to do is stifle the artistic journey.  While it is a good idea to carefully respond to your artist cues, you can support them by buying art supplies, they may not other wise buy themselves. Don't make a big deal about it just quietly lay them in their room without mention or in the area they create their art. For anyone who lives with and loves an artist you understand such complexities.

Art Supplies For The Painter

You never know when the inspiration to paint something will occur, be prepared with paint supplies.

Artist tend to concentrate on the constant flood of artistic inspirations occurring at random. They tend to forget what it is they need till they are in the throws of their latest muse and expression it creates.  You can be an artist biggest fan by keeping them in stock of the paints, brushes, paper, canvas they need to create the beautiful image waiting to be bring it to life as only they can do. There is no better way to encourage your artist than buying and strategically leaving artistic tools and supplies in their quiet place.  They will be very receptive to these art supplies and tools once the urge to paint hits.  Your artist may thank you but don't be offended if they do not.  It may be you are building a quiet understanding and bond of support and belief your artist is not yet ready to concede to. They will however hold a very special place for you in their shy artistic heart.

Art Bin Organizer

Art supplies have never been so well organized and easily found when the artist reaches for just the right thing at that creative moment.

The Organized Artist is A Happy Artist

The most commonly overlooked addition to any artist collection is the tools to help them organize their art supplies.

One of the best things anyone can buy an artist is the tools to help them organize their supplies.  The ability to have a place for everything and everything in its place is essential for a artist to continue growing in their art.  There is nothing more frustrating than to lose an important brush or pencil. Each tool, supply or medium is a vital ingredient needed for any artist to create the perfect work of art.  

Without all the materials the artist will be met with frustration and no doubt abandon their muse, this creates frustration and tension easily avoided.  The best way to prevent this keeping our artist happy and creative is to buy them organization tools to store and keep their art supplies safe and at the ready.

My Artist

Those of us living with artist are very fortunate to experience the art and the process.

It is wonderful to experience. The best way to enjoy an artist is with distance and respect for their privacy. They will invite you to look at their art when they feel it is worthy of your audience. They will appreciate your gifts of art supplies and tools although it may be best to often times go unspoken.  You see anytime a person is so brave to pursue their love and desire for art, they really put themselves out there.  It can be a vulnerable place met with great expectation from others. They put themselves at risk of you and anyone knowing of their art to expect something of them they are not yet sure of themselves.  The best thing you can do to encourage your artist is to give them space.  Allow them complete ownership and control of their work.  Never pressure an artist to show you their work or watch them as they work unless you are invited.  Take it as it comes and be the silent fan allowing the art and artist to take shape and develop in the privacy of their own artistic world. They may invite you in when the time is right and they may bring it to you. Think of it as watching a beautiful bird, you must be quiet not to scare it off, you do not want to draw attention to the creature and yet you want to feed it watching from a far in hopes it will continue to show its beauty at your home.  Enjoy living with and loving your artist.  My artist is my eldest daughter, she has taught me so much about this wonderful experience.  I'm honored to know such a great artist.   Much Love and Happiness, Katie
