He came to my studio and took a long look at my painting "set-up" and suggested that I take some action against wasting paint.

Woman giving an artist's talk

 

Public speaking can be a bit scary but the truth of the matter is that when it comes to artist talks it's likely that you will be speaking to a small group in the intimate setting of a gallery. So it's really not that bad! So how do you make it happen? Well, if you are having a show you can always ask the gallery if you can arrange an artist talk.
