I met Bob a while back because of a random post on the internet. I followed to his website and it was then I discovered he lived just a few blocks away from me. Such a small world! I emailed and met up with him to discuss art and art marketing. He is a great motivator and has such a positive message for selling art.
We should all eliminate the term ‘starving artist’ from our vocabulary. There are many artists making a living in art who are not starving.
One of my favorite quotes from Bob, “Exposure is what people die of when they get lost in the woods. Artists need to get paid.”

And just recently Bob did a video showing off his shoebox paintings and talking a bit about making a living in the art world in Denver.
