Savvy Painter is the best podcast for artists

Hands-down, this is the best podcast for artists. The guests are successful artists with a lot to say. Better yet, it's obvious that Antrese has studied their work and career before she starts the interview. This enables her to interact with them in a thoughtful, articulate, and meaningful way. This podcast will make you think about how and why you make art, and about how you want to promote your art career.

Fabulous, helpful & encouraging

Hello! I only found the podcast yesterday and listening to Antrese talk while I painted was really wonderful. I felt like I’d found a friend who was prepared to explain and talk through so much of the stuff that’s been rattling around in my head. Awesome! Thank you

My encouraging painting buddy!

I have been listening to the Savvy Painter Podcast for nearly a year now and it has become a staple each week. I listen while painting in my studio and it engages my left brain and leaves me feeling encouraged and inspired to keep on painting. Also, I have been introduced to so many different artists that I hadn't known. I can't imagine not having the Savvy Painter as a resource and painting buddy!

Thank You!

I've been devouring these in my studio over past few days while I work. What an awesome resource you've put together. A few of the artist I know personally, or have heard of them or their work, and others are completely new to me, thank you!

I've been listening to one episode right after another since I found this podcast.

I've been listening to one episode right after another since I found this podcast. The interviews are authentic and compelling, the business and life tips useful and I also appreciate the back and forth rhythm she's developed between business and making art. Thank you Antrese - keep them coming!

FABULOUS! Jam packed with information, fun to listen to

I have been waiting for a podcast like this for such a long time and it is FABULOUS! Jam packed with information, fun to listen to. Antrese's voice is soothing, and the information is motivational. I listen to it while painting, and relisten while watching the dog because I know that I missed some information. The episode with "get it done" author Sam Bennett was really uplifting.

Deeper than it looks!

It took me a while to check this podcast out, because of the title of the show I was expecting mostly marketing tips & that sort of thing. I was afraid it might be a bit glib & superficial...or worse, lessons in how to sell out. I was very happily surprised that Antrese's conversation with artists go far deeper, with discussions not only about business matters & technique, but artistic philosophies & intensely personal experiences relating to the making of art. I do appreciate the helpful marketing stuff (we all need, like it or not), but even more the insights into individual artists' varied approaches to their work & careers. I've also discovered artists here that I might never have encountered otherwise. Thank you, Antrese!

Motivates me to keep pushing for better results

These artists are incredibly talented and insightful. On their recommendations, I have bought books, changed some supplies and tried all sorts of new things. They're making me think of my work in new ways. Antrese is excellent at pulling the good stuff out go these guys. Amazing job!

Thank you soo much for the heart and passion...

Thank you soo much for the heart and passion you have put into Savvy Painter! I am constantly inspired and challenged by you and your guest. Thank you for making this happen and for pulling our worlds together. I am a Senior CG artist at The Basement in Indianapolis with almost thirteen years in the field. My foundation and true love in fine art, Pen and Ink, and oil painting. My strength is drawing but my goal is impressionism oil painting.

Here are my top two struggles. With impressionism with oils...is "when to stop." I tend to push the painting past the moment when I should stop...losing the brush strokes, color, and original heart of the painting. My second struggle is finding time as s a husband, father of two, and full time employee. I can't put into words how blessed I am but I struggle while finding time to put paint to the canvas and learning more. Drawing is different...I draw all the time while working, while at lunch.

Thank you again for your heart and passion you put into Savvy Painter. Continue doing what you do and blessing others!

Great show in a Niche with a big need

The artist seems to be an area where it's often difficult to make a living. This podcast serves this community in a strongly meaningful way. The business of art is also a great example of making a living in the unique niche in a very self fulfilling and acceptable way.

Marvelous Alvaro Castagnet Interview

I love the Savvy Painter!

I feel SO good and inspired after listening to the interviews on the savvypainter.com. I am a painter and often feel really alone navigating the many challenges of being a full-time artist and running my own business. Most people can't relate and or don't take me seriously. It is so wonderful listening to a podcast by a painter for painters. I feel so connected listening to the interviewer with contemporary artists, who open up and describe their struggles and challenges, as well as, where they have found success. The business of art is discussed, as is education, tips, and techniques, ups and downs, the meaning of art, why we create, inspiration...Everything. Wherever you are at in your career, there is something of value and interest to be heard on the Savvy Painter. To my fellow painters, I can't recommend this enough. To everyone else, the show is a glimpse into the lives of artists and is very worthy of your time.

No more roadblocks for Artists that long to have their work seen, except whatever is holding them back inside themselves. Antrese can help with that!

The Podcast that put the focus back on my lack of...look squirrel!

I am so thankful to have discovered the Savvy Painter podcast with Antrese Wood. I was deep into working on a commission and found that I felt my mind was aching for stimulation. This particulate project (wood burning) I was working on bordered more craft than art, but I had to focus and it was painful. THE SAVVY PAINTER PODCAST SAVED MY LIFE! After being privileged to work while listening to TEN or more episodes in a row over two days, I would consider myself an expert on everything savvy. I love the way the show is formatted and Antrese is a gifted listener. She has a tremendous skill for asking questions, keeping conversation light and managing content of a wide variety from several dynamic artists. I feel like I was getting so much done as I burned wood sitting on my yoga ball. I LIVED! I feel great. Thanks, Antrese! I feel like my world has opened up. I'm encouraged and inspired.
