INSIDE THE PAINTER'S STUDIOI recently purchased and have been enthralled with Joe Fig's inspirational book "Inside the Painter's Studio" in which he explores the working life of 24 artist, from those already in history books to those on the cusp of discovery, with interviews and visual documentation of their studios. In the interviews the artists discuss everything from when they considered themselves a professional artist to their favorite painting tools, how they organize their studios, set a creative mood, select a title, have a motto they live by and even advice they would give a young artist just starting out.
