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.

Inspired Art Framework, with Holly Lane
< 1 day ago
Most people don’t stop to consider the artistry involved with the framework that houses paintings. In many cases this is done on purpose, too elaborate or extravagant framework might detract from the detail and message that the artist is trying to convey. But artist Holly Lane has a different approach. She combines both aspects in a harmonious creative endeavor. The result is breathtaking. Holly carefully and litigiously plans how her work with carving and designing her frames will complement and enhance her painting as if they were one unified piece of art. Words don’t do Holly’s work justice, you have to see this brilliant and gifted approach - make sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the images she provided. Early affirmations in carving out a creative path Not all artists receive the encouragement and enthusiasm for their early work as much as they’d like. Many artists use this adversity and challenge to fuel their creativity drive to succeed and make a name for themselves. Artist Holly Lane was fortunate enough to receive some early affirmations from her professors partly because of the unique nature of her work. In art school, Holly really discovered her passion, not only for painting but also for crafting and cultivating a skill for creating intricate frames that enhance her paintings. Holly’s journey wasn’t easy, she has faced her fair share of challenges but it’s refreshing to hear such a positive and encouraging start to an illustrious career. Art Inspired by Animals and Mythology It is an absolute joy to get the chance to hear from so many artists about what motivates and inspires their creative process. I asked my guest Holly Lane about her creative journey and how she conceptualizes her work. Holly explained that she gets a lot of her inspiration from “Interspecies compassion” - philosophical proofs that animals can think. She also delves into the imaginative journey and contemplates the backstory and implications of myths like the Roman goddess Fortuna. Holly has a vibrant and infectious energy that really comes alive when she opens up about her passion for her work. It's always wonderful to hear from such a talented and gracious artist. What is the Stendhal Syndrome? Have you ever heard of the Stendhal Syndrome? Neither had I until my conversation with Holly Lane. Once you hear what it is, it will sound familiar to you. The Stendhal Syndrome is a psychosom

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!
