Motivation: Astute Action Beats Rejection

Astute Action Beats Rejection

Bruce Marion is a well-respected abstract painter. His path to professional and financial success is proof that you can make a good living as an artist. Bruce combines astute action with a good deal of persistence.

"I was turned down by 12 publishers when I first sent a promo package of my work. I was initially turned down by the Celebration of Fine Art - it is now one of my most successful shows.

"This happens to all artists and you just need to move on to the next.

"I learned that a 'no' is only for that moment and has nothing to do with what will happen tomorrow, next week, or next month. Our job is to stay on our path and not get derailed by what other people say or don't say we can do.

Learning and becoming more skilled at what we do, both artistically and from a business standpoint, is the most important thing you can do to build a successful art career.

The A.C.T. program has been an incredible place to learn new ideas, expand my vision, and share ideas and approaches with other established artists.

"I thank Aletta de Wal for her incredible enthusiasm and teaching abilities and for creating this wonderful place for us to keep learning. My career and income continue to expand and Artist Career Training has most certainly been a contributing factor to that."

Bruce credits A.C.T. for helping - but he has created this success himself.
