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!"

Terrific and informative on the subject matter

This podcast does a terrific job interviewing some of the most interesting contemporary painters around. Any painter can find interesting discussions here from working artist about their various methods and their thinking about the art business and the making of art. Good background information and technical information on working methods is always included and artists often mention surprising insights on their personal development. Antrese is a fun, engaging and interested host and she lets the artists tell their own stories with little prompting. Some aspects of painting discussed might feel a bit obscure to a casual listener, but in-depth interview material is actually the best part of the show, since it is rarely presented in print or other formats. Absolutely recommended for any artist or painter at any level from rank beginner to working professional.

Awesome Artist Stimuli

I stumbled across this podcast and what a treasure it's been ! Several of the interviewed artists have been ones I admire (Kathleen Dunphy and Kevin MacPherson - Plein Air artists). The host asks great questions and usually gets great advice for those listening. Even though it is simply audio, a wide array of topics have been covered (drawing, painting, business). It's been fun to listen in on what has to be said about the artists origins, dreams, practices, color choices, and interests. As a young aspiring artist, this podcast is very encouraging and I look forward to sharing with my artist circle of friends. Keep up the great work and keep bringing on those Plein Air artists!!

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!

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.

So motivating!

I've been listening to Antrese Wood's Savvy Painter Podcast during my commutes and I love them! She is an excellent interviewer who seems to know exactly what I would ask and she follows through on all the intriguing details that come up. I love the people she is finding to interview and have learned so much from each podcast- both on the business side of being an artist, and also on the process and mental sides. How validating to find out that my struggles are so similar to those of artists I really admire and respect!

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!

Helpful and supportive!

Antrese asks the questions that provides artists a way to talk about their successes, failures and motivations. It is helpful to identify on the emotional level with what we all feel. Antrese always brings her positive energy into energy into each interview. I'm looking forward to every edition.

Love This Podcast

This is another podcast I love to listen to while driving or working in the studio. I'm not sure how many times I've listened to Hollis Dunlap and Mark Trujillo. At least five or six times each. Keep up the good work.

Deep into the business of art

Antrese brings deep insights about art and the business of selling it from experience and translates that for the rest of us. Her ability to go beyond the obstacles and balance a plan with inspiration comes across. If you are an artist of any medium this is joy to listen to and learn from. - Wyatt, creativehabitspodcast.com

Great Show for the Art Industry

As a former Art student….I wish I had this show growing up to help inspire and teach me how to create a business in the Art Industry. Now so many artists will benefit from this show.

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!

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!

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!

How did I work before Savvy Painter?

I have just come back from painting road trip up the PCH. From the moment I pulled out of the driveway until I pulled back in a week later, I listened to nothing but The Savvy Painter. I couldn't stop. Here is the inspiration you need for whatever artistic blocks you may have. Antrese is a wonderful interviewer. Her warmth, humor and her own personal knowledge of painting leads each and every guest artist to really open up about their personal process, their experiences with the business side of art, their pitfalls, hangups and anxieties. They know they are talking to someone who was been through it as well. Hearing such wonderful discussions - intelligent and thoughtful without ever being stuffy - was exactly the motivation I needed as I pulled into a spot to unload the car and dig into a canvas. I am so happy I found this podcast. And now that I'm home, it's time to dig into SavvyPainter.com. Thanks Antrese!

Immensely helpful and informative

So many of use who make/do art...do it alone. This is a great chance to hear from others about their failures and successes that have allowed them to grow and prosper. Some of the interviews answer important questions that I didn't even know I wanted to ask. Thank you for the variety of people you interview. And thank you for the follow-up info regarding the artists mentioned. I am a better artist because of this podcast.

The podcast is a wonderful resource for artists (and wanna be artists) to learn more about other people's process, lives and techniques. Antrese is an adept, natural interviewer and the conversation she has with the guest artists are always insightful and informative. Thank you for this, a great idea you've wonderfully brought to life!
