Overview

Is living the artist's life a dream for you? Have you asked yourself what it would take for you to be a full-time artist? This book answers that question for you by sharing the career stories of twenty well-known artists who are making a living from doing what they love best - painting. These artists offer their personal stories - each one different, yet the same in many ways. They illustrate that it matters little what style of art you do, or what medium you choose to use, but instead that you continually ask yourself, "What's really important to me?...What exactly do I want to say?... What do I need to say through my art?" And then let the answers to those questions lead you where they may. These uniquely personal journeys will not only inspire you, they'll give you usable information about making art a practical, viable career. These artists share the questions they have asked themselves, the problems they've faced and overcome, and the experiences that have put them in the process of continually becoming the most fulfilled artists they can be - all to help you do the same with your artistic career.
