    Art & Fear explores the way art gets made, the reasons it often doesn't get made, and the nature of the difficulties that cause so many artists to give up along the way. This is a book about what it feels like to sit in your studio or classroom, at your wheel or keyboard, easel or camera, trying to do the work you need to do. It is about committing your future to your own hands, placing free will above predestination, choice above chance. It is about finding your own work.

    Story
    Where does Art & Fear rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is one that I will return to again and again like a mantra. I'm so happy that it is available in audio now. I can listen to it driving back and forth to the day job - the job that allows me to buy any art supplies I need but keeps me too busy to remember where my studio is and too tire to go there when I do remember.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Art & Fear?

    "The hardest part of artmaking is living your life in such a way that your work gets done, over and over..."


    Have you listened to any of Arthur Morey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. This performance would be my first for him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    "It is easier to paint in the angel's feet to another's master-work than to discover where the angels live within yourself."


    Any additional comments?

    I've read Art & Fear two or three times over the last several years. My paperback copy is worn and underlined. It's a book I go back to when I get stuck in my art. Yesterday, I was looking for my copy, couldn't find it and turned to Audible. I was thrilled to find it here! The prose is sometimes beautiful and sometimes sarcastic. The writers don't take themselves too seriously. That being said, they never fail offer the encouragement I need when I start doubting my artistic integrity.
