The creation of art is not the fulfillment of a need but the creation of a need. The world never needed Beethovenís Fifth Symphony until he created it. Now we could not live without it.
(Louis Kahn)

Information for Artists

A Starving Artist is NOT a Romantic Image!

  • Instruction and Inspiration
    • How to Become an Artist's Model: I get asked this a lot, so it was time to add a Web page on this topic.
    • Robert Genn's Creative, Inspirational Letter: Robert Genn's is one e-mail I really look forward to every Tuesday and Friday. It covers topics such as workspaces, pricing, galleries, Web marketing, regular marketing, creative blocks, relationships with non-artists and family, traveling, controversial subjects, etc. The clickbacks are fun too since people have interesting opinions or contributions on some topics. The correspondence is usually addressed to painters, but there are all kinds of creative people in this group. He also has a great section of the site devoted to quotes. [Bob died in 2014; but his daughter, painter Sara Genn continues on with the letters.]
