Living the Artists Life by Paul Dorrell

Written by an art dealer who is also a novelist--Paul Dorrell--this rare work helps to guide artists through the maze of the art world, and the artists life. It is composed as much of humor and passion as it is of wisdom and candor. Dorrell has lived life on his own terms, but with intelligence and compassion. He first started his gallery simply to have a decent joint in which to write. After repeatedly facing bankruptcy, he went on to oversee major art projects all over the country, while always writing, raising a family and living fully. In this work Dorrell not only discusses survival as an artist?emotionally and practically?but artistic growth in the face of rejection. He struggled with that rejection from publishers for 25 years, while still serving his artists careers. Dorrell put a lifetime of observation into this work, and was brutally honest about his failures and successes in the process. He wrote the work not only to inspire artists, but also so they could learn much of what he has--whether of a practical nature, esthetic, or philosophic. The book reads like a fast-paced novel, and will keep you engrossed from beginning to end. When you are done with it, you will come away reassured for having followed your calling.
