"How to Grow as an Artist" by Daniel Grant. This is just one of several art books I brought on this boating adventure.
Although some of the information is dated (the book was published in 2002), I still found many gems inside. It covers a wide variety of subjects that interest most artists, like how to set up a safe working environment, how to present work to a gallery, where to go for art instruction, how to overcome blocks, discussion of materials and suppliers. As I said, some of the particular references to websites and people are no longer valid, the ideas still are.
These websites are new discoveries for me, thanks to the book:
Here is my favorite, a bit of a quote from Wolf Kahn
"...create art that is personal and meaningful."
Special thanks to Jan Heigh who loaned me this book!
