Savvy Painter Podcast with Antrese Wood
About This Show
Savvy Painter is a weekly podcast for artists who mean business.
Antrese Wood talks to experts in the field about the business of art and how it gets created. Want to know how leaders in the fine art world of plein-air and landscape painting got their start? What habits do top artists have in common?
Savvy Painter digs deep into the struggles and successes of contemporary painters. Artists spend enormous amounts of time alone in their studios. It's easy for them to believe their challenges are unique when in fact they are not. Fortunately others have been there before, and by sharing our stories with other artists we all win.
The collective intelligence of the artist community is infinitely greater than the individual. Here's how you can tap into it.

Discover Your Passion in Life, with Deborah Paris
2 days ago
Have you discovered your passion in life? What is that one thing that lights you up like nothing in the world can? Imagine going through life without realizing or experiencing your passion in a consistent way. Deborah Paris realized one day that she wasn’t following her passion in life. From that moment on she set out to make a change in her career and focus on what really mattered to her. She went from a career practicing law to connecting with her desire to become an artist. Deborah’s message to people unsure of their future and career is to follow your passion. Don’t let another day go by without taking the steps to really engage in what matters to you. A Reaction Beyond Words Can you think of the most powerful response to your artwork that you’ve ever received? Some artists have a few of these interactions to choose from and others haven’t had any notable reactions at all. In my time interviewing artists, it really does vary - there doesn’t seem to be a pattern to how people respond. In my recent conversation with artist Deborah Paris, she shared with me a particularly notable reaction she received to someone who purchased her artwork. This reaction was so strong, the individual couldn’t even speak and put into words the emotion she was experiencing. To me, that is a beautiful story. There are times we experience beauty in this world that no words can do justice describing. Easing into a Workflow How do you approach your daily or weekly work patterns? Do you jump right in and find that the creative juices start flowing right away or do you find that you need some time to prepare and ease into your workflow? I had the great opportunity to sit down with artist, Deborah Paris as she opened up about how she approaches her workload each day. Deborah’s approach is to tackle the simple things first and then build up to the more challenging aspects of her day and the work that she is creating. To see the amazing products of Deborah’s workflow, make sure to catch images of her work at the end of this post! Sharing Wisdom with Others If you were to write a book, what would the subject be? What topic do you have the experience and wisdom on to share with the world? That seems like a very bold and out there question but like the life of an artist, a writer has to create from the core of their being. My guest, Deborah Paris is writing a book about her journey of discovering her passion in life. Sh

Great Show for Anyone, Not Just Artists
This show is awesome for "starving artists" everywhere who are struggling to balance their passion and their finances. I'm looking forward to continuing to listen even though I'm not an artist, but to see what I can learn about marketing and selling from a different perspective than the marketing and selling shows provide. Keep up the great work Antrese!
