Audiobooks are one of the greatest technological developments for a painter. For anyone with a hands on task they are a great tool for exercising your mind as you go. As an artist I love watching how the content or thoughts from the books inserts itself back into the work that I make. This world is a bottomless pit of discovery and wonder.
Here are the books I listened to this past year and a few that I’m studying that don’t really translate to audio. My audible.com wish list is LONG but if you see a book I’m missing that I should make time for feel free to pass it along. If you follow the links to any of these books you can listen to a sample free to get an idea of what they are about. I left out a few that I’m still working on and one that I wouldn’t recommend. Enjoy!
