Reminding me to paint with my soul..

I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your interview on the Savvy Painter. Thank you for reminding me to paint with my soul and not be so wrapped up in technique. The paintings that I have enjoyed painting the most are the ones that I get lost in and they paint themselves without thinking about technique.

Artists who share their pragmatic as well as visionary sides

Great questions. Artists who share their pragmatic as well as visionary sides. It's such a generous contribution to the sometimes-solitary world of an artist, and I'm soaking up all I can, learning more each episode. Thank you, Antrese, for such a wonderful asset that also brings gift after gift of "Yes! I needed to hear that!"

More More More of THIS!!!

Just listened to Kathleen Dunphy interview and was absolutely riveted to every world. Just invaluable to me. I took away so many great tips on how to persevere, how to follow what you WANT. Antrese moves the conversation through in a natural way. You are sitting there feeling so lucky to be hearing all of this great advice. It's all the better knowing Antrese and respecting her work and journey...she can relate to the wonderful people she is interviewing and so that lends a lot to it. These are life and soul saving talks that are keeping me walking that line with my head high. I've listened to a lot of these kinds of things, but I'm a huge fab already...heard two and on to the rest and so happy to know there will be more!!!

Genuine...extraordinary person and an amazing interviewer

Antrese is an extraordinary person and an amazing interviewer. She is actually present throughout the entire interview, not just reading questions and waiting for an opening in the conversation so that she can say something. She is very engaged and engaging and her own paintings are beautiful. She asks the questions that I, as an artist would ask the interviewee myself but in a truly curious and very conversational way. She shares some of herself but not too much, it is like listening to a conversation between two extremely interesting and close friends. I recommend this podcast often to friends and fellow artists. Go Antrese!

Inspiring!

So thankful to have see artist Carol Marine mention this series in her blog, and I'm thrilled I took time to check it out. Topics and the interviewees are diverse but very relevant to working artists. Creating art can be a solitary discipline, and listening to the podcasts is a wonderful way to get out fo your little bubble and see how the real world works and how other artists think and create. The other thing I really like is that the podcasts are not too long 🙂 Antrese is great at asking the right questions and pulling out the most important information from her guests.

Top notch artist interviews

This is my favorite artist podcast! Antrese will introduce you to quality, committed artists and you'll get to live vicariously through her interviews. Her guests are people who I wish I could invite over for dinner or visit at their studios. I learn something new every time and it's always fun. Thank you Antrese for sharing yourself and your interviews with us.

I stumbled on these...

I stumbled on these, not sure how, but I'm so glad I did! So much information and ideas. By listening to all these other artists I've found that the struggles I'm going through are just part of the process. What a huge help and relief. Techniques, marketing, finding your own voice, the list goes on, you won't be sorry!

A Wealth of Insight and Information

Thank you so much for this podcast series hearing from other artists is invaluable. The episode with Mitchell Johnson was especially engaging - his wealth of insight and passion for color and painting palpable; and has me starting on some more in-depth color study. Your episode with Gabe Fernandez was also really great, especially hearing of the experiences and interests behind his paintings.

Amazing resource

The breadth of interviews is outstanding. I have learned so much from everyone, from the art aspect (like Camille’s) to the business aspect (such as Cory Huff’s). Thank you so much Antrese for spearheading this effort!

A podcast for artists looking for a mentor

Antrese is a great interviewer of highly acclaimed artists and entrepreneurs who are willing to share their unguarded perspective on Art and all avenues it encompasses. Each episode has been a valuable reminder of how important it is as an artist to find other artists to talk to. She is having the conversations we all want to have and putting them out there for our benefit.

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.

Savvy Painter Rocks!

This is a great podcast and just what I needed to inspire me to build my platform and create a business out of my art. This is definitely going to be one of my favorite podcasts and a regular listen for me each week. Love Antrese’s conversations and great guests. Check it out!

Antrese does wonderful job bringing us great guests with fabulous insight

I'm not even an artist and I listen to this show. The folks Antrese has on are wise in business and life, which applies to artists and non-artists alike. I've heard things I've never heard on any go my business podcasts. Great stuff!

Ebullient interviews that are entertaining and informative

Interviewing and making it interesting is difficult. And that to a visual topic on an audio only medium and it's at expert level. Host Antrese Wood handles this so deftly that you can't even see the brush strokes. Even when a guest misinterprets a question and answers in a fractal way, she encourages and nourishes this surprise branch and delves deeper. Her website has the gallery and bibliography for every episode (which is oh so helpful to not only see the art being discussed but to learn about any other artists being referenced). Put a red dot on this podcast, I'm sold.

A very important resource for fine art painters

Fantastic podcast. I've been searching for a long time for a podcast that talked about living ones life as a painter and the concerns that come along with making a living on one's Art. Thank you very much for spending the time and resources to produce this great show.

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.

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!
