David J Teter replied to Tony burns's discussion Brazen people with high def cell phones video recording booths
"I thought it was too good to be true. That explains why the ads were so vague.  with no real tech data. I guess the only place we'll ever see it is in the movies."

David J Teter replied to Tony burns's discussion Brazen people with high def cell phones video recording booths
"You could look into these camera jammers. Of course cell phone jammers are not legal but maybe camera jammers are. It might depend on the state. So I'm NOT advocating anything illegal. The first link is an app for android which sets up a field…"

David J Teter replied to Chris King's discussion How to cover curtains in convention center?
"I may be picturing it wrong in my head but if their grotty curtains are part of the dividers and your booth can't you use magnets? One on the backside of grotty, the other on your side. Any home center or hardware store has them in various…"

David J Teter commented on Connie Mettler's blog post Cool Ad! Would you attend?
"Would I want to attend the show based on the ad? I don't know how well it reflects the kind of show it is but to me it does communicate excitement and an event you don't want to miss. So yes as a patron it gets my attention and I would to…"

David J Teter replied to Linnea Lahlum's discussion How to cut thick Gatorfoam board by hand?
"A good small handheld cordless saw is this one from Makita. Has many uses and not expensive so depending on how much DIY you do it would be a good buy. It will give you a cleaner cut than a jig saw. I have cut 3/4 in thick wood wood with no…"

"No, but having seen this I will have to re-think. Cool ad for sure. Cuts through the clutter of so many others."

David J Teter replied to Robin Weinrich's discussion Price tags
"I have always been of the mindset to make it easy for the customer so the price in view on the bust seems like the right way to me. I would not want the customer to have to ask. As a painter the price is on the wall next to the painting but still on…"

David J Teter replied to Sonja Jones's discussion What's the rudest comments you've had towards your art?
"Baffling indeed Rachelle. Some people's mouths are faster than their brains. That means hers are selling for less than $35. I have spent at least that before I even begin painting. The lowest my 5' x 7" paintings go for are $175.00…"

David J Teter replied to Sonja Jones's discussion What's the rudest comments you've had towards your art?
"Erika,you are welcome. I know photographers get more of those types of comments than we painters do because anyone can push a button on a camera. Of course that doesn't make them a photographer anymore than owning a fast car makes them a race…"

David J Teter replied to Sonja Jones's discussion What's the rudest comments you've had towards your art?
"Yes, as Larry said everyone thinks they can do it themselves. That is because they are seeing the finished product or piece. What they don't see is the years of experience, the knowledge of art/design, all the 'fails' before, all of…"

David J Teter commented on Richard L. Sherer's blog post CERF+ and California Fires
"Thanks for posting this. I am in California and fortunately not in need of assistance. I know how devastating it can be to lose everything or nearly everything. My Mom's house caught fire a few years ago (not a wildfire) and much of my…"

David J Teter commented on Troy Smith's blog post Art Fair Etiquette
"Add photographing artwork. Some artists are fine with it others, like photographers, are not. Ask before taking a photo or if the artist is not in their booth and there is no sign assume you can not. There should also be a corresponding list for…"

David J Teter replied to Matt Gwinn's discussion What's the worst comment you've ever received at a show?
"I have not had any personally at a show but have had some doosey's  when someone has wanted to see my work but Sandra...Moran's comment reminds me of one a fellow artist, a fiber artist and a really good one too, got at a show. A…"
