Painting My Passion: An Artist's Journey with the Women of the West
Author: Carol A. McIntyre
Have you ever wondered:
What or how an artist thinks?
What it takes to exhibit work and listen to people's reactions?
How the stages of the creativity cycle impact the artistic process?
How an artist creates a large body of artwork & why?
How one artist created compositions to convey her visual message?
How a focused body of work led to many opportunities that could not have been predicted?
The answers to these questions and more can be found in my book: "Painting My Passion!"
A visual artist's voice is rarely heard in words. Inspired by history, I pursued my dream of creating a large body of artwork commemorating the women of the 1800's. This memoir is an intimate glimpse into my artistic life, creative decision making, the struggles and triumphs, and the lessons learned while painting my passion.
