Birthday gift to myself
What a great present to myself. I spent the morning painting in my studio, went to lunch with friends then came home and spent the evening doing are work. I found a book in my collection How to Succeed as an Artist in your Home Town, by Stewart Biehl. It was produced by Northern Light and I have started reading some of the tips Mr Biehl has compiled for all us artist who struggle with being seen. How many people have repeated the adage "It's who you know not what you know?" I guess I like the fact he admits he may not be the greatest artist but he earns enough to do what he loves for a living. How many of us, whether we are good artists are not could benefit from this philosophy?
