An Artist’s Thought Book: Intriguing Thoughts about the Artistic Process (2nd Edition)
The second edition has over 75 new maxims on the artistic process from the multifaceted artist, Richard Bargdill. Chapters concentrate on poetry, singing, painting, the nature of creativity, and what it means to be an artist. In separate sections, the artist has picked his favorite maxims and elaborated on what those particular ones mean to him. Thus, the reader can view the work initially without influence but later can gain from the input of the author.
