For the Artist

This little book is perfect for artists of all ages!  Pair it with art supplies that compliment the person.  Brushes, oil paint, acrylic paint, markers, canvas or canvas paper, a painting apron, charcoal, molding clay, water color paper, water color paint or pencils.  Seriously the ideas are endless, especially once you walk into the art supply store!  Just bare in mind what your artist likes to work with and even buy things for them that might be a luxury to have like a brush holder, cleaner, and easel, etc.  

THE BOOK is all about motivating you to create!  IT also has tons of great life advice as well.  My favorite idea from the book is that he talks about how we really are "stealing" art from everywhere around us.  When we compile it together, that is what makes it our own.  He quotes a writer in the book, Wilson Mizner, "if you copy from one author, it's plagiarism, but if you copy from many, it's research."  He illustrates the point that inspiration is all around us all we have to do is look!  It is small 6 inch square book.  Easy and fun to read with illustrations and hand written quotes to emphasize points.  Overall super positive and uplifting!

Happy Giving!
