Spring Cleaning | Estate Planning for Artists (with image, tweets) · dutchessabroad

How to prepare for the future: taking care of your, or others' artwork and loved ones.
Judith van Praag's insight:

Check it out. There's a "will" and "no will" section to peruse. Very helpful. A few years ago I attended a worthwhile panel discussion organized by Seattle's ArtistTrust, on taking care of your art, assets and heirs.

 

Who wants to think about death and dying? 

 

Think of preparation as cleaning up your studio. Imagine what people will see if you don't do that. And think about what you want them to do with your work. Think about your loved ones.

 

Think before you leap into the great unknown, you never know when that might be. Start early, start soon. Think of it as Spring cleaning.

EntityCube and the Way Artists are Connected - James Turrell | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Judith van Praag's insight:

All great minds think alike, all artists are connected by the concept of creating (for) the space we live in. Making the world visible by offering their point of view.

Fine Art of Needlework and Embroidery by Mireille Vautier

Site internet de Mireille Vautier. Dessins, broderies et travaux.
Judith van Praag's insight:

Ironic that I scoop up Mireille Vautier's website for the department "Creatives at Home on the Internet" and yet, there are no images available for scoop-it!
Yes, I can download an image, but I prefer not to do this.

Go see for yourself.

Animals - project 2014 - Armando Bergallo: Arts Plastiques - Opéras Contemporains - Projets transdisciplinaires | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Judith van Praag's insight:

In honor of the work horse I'm choosing this beauty who reminds me of a few childhood years in the Dutch country side where the plow and hay wagons were still pulled by the strong Belgium gentle giants. 

 

Equally beautiful are the giant cats, lions and owls Armando Bergallo eternalizes on canvas. Check them out.

Graphic Designer Crazy About Letter Fonts Kunstwerkt #3 - Rafaella Wang

De Chileens/Amsterdamse Rafaella Wang gunt ons een blik in haar leven als illustrator/grafisch vormgeefster. Aan de hand van drie projecten die ze recentelijk uitvoerde…
Judith van Praag's insight:

"Beeldig" that's Rafaella. Lovely and all over Design with fonts she draws herself. After college she gave herself four years to see whether she could make a living, and after two she had proven she could. Power to the artist who finds a way to do what she loves, all day long. Making other people happy with her visions.

Moving From iPhoto To Dropbox

Moving From iPhoto To Dropbox | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Judith van Praag's insight:

Listen up y'all, Federico Viticci's fear of what might happen in the future when his iPhotos would not be properly stored elsewhere, only because he  wasn't willing to pay the $99 for Pro storage at Dropbox, became my reality the other day.
We were burglarized. And since I had been to cheap to pay less than $10 per month for the extra Pro storage, and I didn't have my iPhotos stored any where other than my computer, 4 years worth of pics were lost. Can't tell you how sore I am.
Viticci's post is comprehensive and worth reading. If you don't want to go through the trouble, and don't care much about the descriptive info that comes with your pictures at least upload to Dropbox the easy way. 

 

And be thankful you'll never have to know what it's like to lose your memory stash.

Creatives IRL + Online; Artists & Entrepreneurs pay heed to #author #coach Gigi Rosenberg

Judith van Praag's insight:

Gigi's post triggered a memory. My take, "There's Life After Hope". This relates to an important choice I made, and anyone can make. We can all be a success story by recognizing what we have and have accomplished so far. Even if the grass is yellow, not green, take whiff of that hay-like aroma, feel the crunch under your shoes, chose the hue for your kitchen, or den, and feel the warmth of the sun's rays reflected by your surroundings.

Artist/ Writer Aafke Steenhuis Combines Images and Words

Artist/ Writer Aafke Steenhuis Combines Images and Words | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Judith van Praag's insight:

We attended the same high school in Groningen, she nine years ahead of me, same timeframe as my ex-husband.

While looking at her website I'm impressed by the number of publication from her hand.

Proof of a productive life, all adventures and convictions made into books. That's inspirational to me. Someone to keep in mind, work to keep an eye on. 

 

Always pay attention to good examples, to people whose work speaks to you, folks whose words resonate, whose imagery hits a nerve.

Moshe Rynecki | Portrait of a Jewish-Polish Artist from Warsaw, Poland

Moshe Rynecki | Portrait of a Jewish-Polish Artist from Warsaw, Poland | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Artwork and life of Moshe Rynecki (1881-1943). Jewish-Polish painter from Warsaw, Poland. Painted Jewish community in 1920s-1930s and Warsaw Ghetto.
Judith van Praag's insight:

Should the art of a Jewish artist who was killed during the Holocaust be Scoop-it! up for Creatives at Home on the Internet? 
You bet!
Moshe Rynecki's great-granddaughter Elizabeth has created an online memorial for her great grandfather, and is working hard at tracing a total of 800 paintings, given to non-Jews in safe-keeping during WWII. 


Moshe Rynecki is at Home on the Internet.

Judith van Praag's insight:

Okay, so we were burglarized. The thieves took both my computer. I didn't have my iPhotos backed up anywhere else but on those two pieces of hardware. Yeah. Stupid. I know. So I'm looking at what I can find Online. Turns out there's quite a bit, not everyting. Not the best pictures, I was holding back you see, to publish some Blurb Books. . Very sad. The projects were saved on my Mac, and not on the Blurb site. So, pictures lost, book lost. But  then there's Instagram for instance, where I've uploaded more images than I realized. And on my Instagram blog, is a link to this site. All about.me. Yep. I need a little stroking, so, if you like what you see, give me heart, or the thumbs up, I can use a little support right now. Burglaries suck. Home invasion sucks. Having your computer with all your writing on them stolen sucks. Losing your photos sucks. So, have a heart, give me some sugar by giving me the thumbs up. and visit my Instagram site as well, if you have time. I promise there's a lot to see. http://instagram.com/dutchessabroad
