The Art of Selling Art Podcast

F-Stop Collaborate and Listen Photography Podcast

Matt Payne, host of the F-Stop and Listen podcast surprised me a few weeks ago with an invitation to be on his podcast! He had seen a very nice review written by a member of The Art of Selling Art.

I was stoked to say Yes!

So… we had a fluid 90 minutes of discussion on all things on related to the business of art. I enjoyed it immensely and I hope you will, too. Especially if you’re an artist following this blog.

You can listen on iTunes by clicking here or the above photo or you can listen right from this website using the player below. You can also read his thoughts on the interview on Matt’s blog, here.

There's a ton of bonus content over there for subscribers! Your support is critical - it helps with production costs and to improve the podcast over time. Thanks! Even $1 / Matt helps a lot! 


Over on his Patreon this week, Matt and I discuss my awesome process for how to find your voice as an artist - which I think is a totally unique and worthwhile process for landscape photographers to embark upon.

Did you enjoy the conversation?

I’d love to hear your thoughts!

New Release - Edge Of Solace

Jason Matias Proudly Presents: Edge Of Solace


Edge of Solace

This scene is as much painting as photograph. It is a scene I’ve longed for but never found and, finally, allowed my creativity to rend reality. Edge of Solace is an idea I’ve carried with me for a long time but I feel that it was Seattle and the Northwest that gave me the inspiration and the building blocks to bring it to life. All the elements in Edge of Solace were captured in Seattle and Mercer Island making it a true work of the Pacific Northwest and a statement about my time here. 

As I strive to visualize and create this idea of Comfortable Isolation I find myself drawn to water and what it represents: renewal, neutrality, energy. In psychology, the ego is referred to as a pool of energy. Too often, I visit my ego when it is roiling, dry, or as hard as ice. In my meditations, I imagine myself on the shore of my ego and I will it to be vast. The Edge of Solace is my reminder to self to visit here often, to meditate on my experiences, to check-in with my feelings, and to keep this place vibrant and full.

You're Invited to an Art Event at Sotheby's in Madison Park, Seattle

Luxury is an experience, not a price point.

I love that tag-line from Realogics Sotheby's in Seattle. It applies to art as much as it applies to the beautiful homes they find for their clients. On the 22nd we are kicking off a month-long art exhibit in the Park House on 4031 E Madison Street, Seattle. There will be great wine and eats. I will be showing several pieces including the new Avendasora, pictured below, and Nude 1. 

I will be available throughout the month-long exhibit to meet at the Park House and talk about the art. As always, feel free to schedule with me via email or phone 808.321.8643

Join us at The Park House, located at 4031 E Madison Street, on February 22nd from 4-8PM for an art pop-up featuring fine art by Jason Matias! We will be serving small bites and libations and will have a special opportunity to hear Jason speak about his art from 5:30-6PM. 


Eatings and Greetings - Turkey Day 2017

I have actually been practicing

being thankful. Admittedly, I'm bad at it. Bad at remembering to practice. Poor, even, at recognizing the gifts I have in plentitude. 

I am thankful for... A) that you have opened this email- you're part of a slim 20% that do. & B) That, for a change, I won't be eating spaghetti at home and watching a movie this year. Though, it's been a 'thing' long enough to be considered a tradition by now. 

While I won't be doing any sort of holiday sales this year I do have some things to look forward to for you. 

AVENDASORA - I am in love with this new piece and I will be releasing it in email and social media on the 1st of December. Some of you may have seen previews of her already. She has me in a trance and is certainly this year's masterpiece. 

DECEMBER 4TH, an inauspicious Monday, is about the cut off for ordering a piece for Christmas. After that, I'm not 100% positive that I will be able to get it to you by the big day, especially if you want it framed. 

Buying Art Is a Conversation

It's a conversation between you and the art; between you and your significant other; between you and me. Let's have that chat! Feel free to
A) email me-
B) call or text me- 808-321-8643
