Book Recommendation


Inside the Painter's Studio by Joe Fig

"Inside the Painter's Studio collects twenty-four remarkable artist interviews, as well as exclusive visual documentation of their studios. Featured artists were asked a wide range of questions about their day-to-day creative life, covering everything from how they organize their studios to what painting tools they prefer. Artists open up about how they set a creative mood, how they choose titles, and even whether they sit or stand to contemplate their work." http://www.papress.com/html/book.details.page.tpl?isbn=9781568988528
