Not exactly a typical coffee-table art-book, but unlike any art book you've seen. Makes a great gift for your artist friends or family. Authors’ Excuse:
For years we have jokingly talked of doing a book about the many excuses artists come up with to explain the shortcomings in their work. We’ve heard them all, both through the workshops we sponsor and our gallery. Artists truly are a creative bunch, and not just in creating paintings. These excuses, illustrated so cleverly by our good friend, John Potter, may come in handy for you the next time you’re searching for just the right explanation for a not-exactly-perfect painting. We hope you enjoy seeing yourself and friends in many of these excuses. if not, enjoy the fun intended. The excuses (One a week for a year) are accompanied by a short explanation by Jim from The instructor’s point of view on how to avoid or best survive each situation. Between Laughs, tidbits of wisdom in The Artist's Book of Excuses should help artists remember key elements of how to enjoy the wonderful but often frustrating foray into the world of art.
