Nationally known landscape painter and sculptor Vic Riesau has published a book about pursuing a career as an artist, titled “Challenges and Discoveries – Inspiration and Advice From the Journal of An Artist.” Inside, Riesau covers many fundamental challenges artists encounter, including networking, mind-set, media issues, and artistic perspective in an ever-shifting art world.
Culled from journal notes he gathered while preparing classes for his long-standing students, the author notes: “This is not a book about HOW to paint, but suggestions and observations on what I have found are essential tools and perspectives important in sustaining a life as a fine arts painter.”
Enthusiastically debuted at the first Plein Air Conference in Las Vegas in April 2012, “Challenges and Discoveries” was widely lauded among artists, collectors and industry movers-and-shakers alike. A great addition to the reference library of any artist in your circle of creative family and friends, the book also provides insight for anyone seeking an understanding of the life of an artist.
