When I hit a roadblock and am feeling uninspired, I turn to the words of other creatives who have made a profession out of their work. I find that painting when I’m just not “feeling it” makes me resent the piece I’m working on, and that’s not very fair to the painting! I have read the following six art-related books in the past year and find them all to be motivating and inspiring. I hope you enjoy them too! I’ve written a brief summary of what I took away from each book, but please feel free to reach out to me if you’d like to hear more about them.
