The Appraiser Who Got My Goat

I just got the shock of an artistic lifetime. An appraiser walked into my 55-square meter apartment to see the goodies. He sniffed at the painting I’d just carted home from the frame shop.

Testing Your Muscles, Empowering Your Words with Genesis Art

Kinesiology is a method of muscle testing to help determine whether what you’re putting inside of you is making you stronger or weaker.

Kind Words on the Artist’s Journey

Remember streaking? It was a short-lived craze mostly done by meshugena who would run through the streets naked. Well, if you’re new to drawing, sharing your art can feel a lot like streaking. You might feel vulnerable. You might feel judged. But you do it anyway. You might talk yourself out of even trying to […]

Color in your Drawings the Genesis Way
