I found both of these books through the blog www.brainpickings.org which is an incredible resource for creative types.
Why these two books? Well, I love that Conversations With Picasso is literally written like you are sitting in a room with the man, and I find that to be a priceless opportunity. And Steal Like an Artist is helping me to stay focused on strengthening my creative muscles and motivating me to keep pushing forward with my work.
This summer was intense with getting pieces ready for the art walk and the fall has been crazy with work and teaching ARCH 151 at MSU. But these books are my opportunities to remain actively engaged in my creative work and help me take that next deep breath so I can start another push.
