One Response to “Visual Artists – Developing Your Career”

  1. There is a beautifully published book called “Wisdom & the Dreamer”
    by Kristen Thies. It should sit on the bookself of every visual artist out there trying to develop his or her career. Great tips on marketing your art work and yourself as an artist. Beautiful images in the book as well – many by foremost representational artist Richard Schmid. Also images from the very talented artists Nancy Guzik (R. Schmid’s wife) and
    Timothy Thies, who has been mentored as an artist by Richard Schmid.
