In the second scene, the main character played by Glen Hansard appears as a madman singing on a dark street corner of Dublin. Of course he’s dealing with the disillusionment of a broken heart.

The aggressive artist

July 21, 2009

Dear Bill,

Yesterday, Bill (Bosque) Redondo of Fresno, California, wrote: "I know quite a few artists who are really serious about marketing and selling their art. However, it seems like they are not aggressive enough and I wonder if that might be the reason for their lack of sales? Do artists need to 'wine and dine' potential customers or should they trust their art to sell itself?"

Thanks, Bosque. While selling is not the Holy Grail to many… Continue

Quick Take your Clothes off ...

Artist Joke: An artist had been working on a nude portrait for a long time, posing for him was beautiful voluptuous Redhead . Every day, he was up early and worked late - bringing perfection with every stroke of his paint brush. As each day passed, he gained a better understanding of the female body and was able to really make his paintings shine. After a month, the artist had become very weary from this non-stop effort and decided to take it easy for the day. Since his model had already… Continue
