For the past 11 years, Jan Heaton has been grieving at the same time she has had an active art career. First was the 10 years of her daughter's illness. Then, in 2019, her daughter's passing.

I felt it was a good time to discuss the topic of grief since so many artists are grieving during Covid-19. Artists share grief over lost plans, opportunities, studio spaces, human connection, routines, and travel. And probably a lot more.

Born in Michigan, Jan Heaton is a watercolorist who calls Austin and Laguna Beach home. She has studied at Wayne State University, the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the University of Texas - Austin. Heaton’s watercolors are abstract, but her creative process is inspired by the structure, color, and pattern of elements in nature that are often overlooked. Her work isolates details and exposes the viewer to an everyday object or place seen from a new viewpoint.

Jan is represented by the Davis Gallery in Austin, along with art dealers and galleries in San Antonio, Marble Falls, Houston, Atlanta, Santa Barbara, and San Francisco.

This is a huge topic and Jan wants to be very clear that she isn’t an expert on grief. I asked her to be on the show just to talk about her experience in hopes that it might be helpful—even if for only one person.

This episode is sponsored my signature business-building program, the Art Career Success System, a program I have perfected for more than 17 years working with artists.

All of the lessons you learn in the Art Career Success System are tasks you will do over and over again throughout your art business and career. That’s why it’s a SYSTEM.

In the ACSS you will build a strong foundation using my video and audio lessons, worksheets, and transcripts. And you will be part of a community of artists who are forward-thinking and forward-moving.

On the Art Biz Podcast I usually talk with artists who have a studio practice and a business lesson to share. But I’ve been changing things up during Covid-19, as I’ve wanted to focus on what you can do now to stay in control of your art business. This control is important since there are so many things that are out of your hands.

Join in this conversation using #ArtBizNow on Instagram.

This episode is a recent conversation that I had with Cynthia Morris on Facebook Live, and I thought it might work well as an audio-only version.

Cynthia and I talked about the types of journals we think are best for this process, why it’s important to write by hand before moving to the computer, a structure for your journaling process, and how to use prompts to get your ideas down.

Remember that we recorded this as a video conversation with one another. Some things might not translate. For example, we did show and tell about our journals. Luckily, you can easily access the accompanying video, along with images. Visit ArtBizSuccess.com/podcasts and look for episode #51.
