Troubadors oil on canvas Ann Trusty
Welcome to The Artist's RoadHaving spent a lifetime exploring and finding purpose, meaning and fulfillment through art, we decided to build this website to share what we have learned and to inspire others in their creative lives. Some of the important content (over 350 articles) you'll find here is instructional - the steps to making paintings in oil, pastel or watercolor. But just as important are the stories of the experiences and adventures we and others have had in over 40 years of making our way along the Artist's Road, in the U.S. and abroad. Enjoy the free content. It is our hope that you will find value and inspiration in it. If you do, please consider joining as a member in order to access all the members-only in-depth articles and to add your valuable support to this important effort.
A home for creative people with a passion for ART and TRAVEL.
We all learn from each other.
Discover what top artists like Albert Handell, Marc Hansen, Kathy Anderson, James Gurney, Howard Friedland, Peter Fiore and many more have to say about their work and lives as artists in our regular
Voices of Experience feature.
We believe that more artists in the world is a good thing for everyone.
