Jerry Saltz’s book, “How to be an Artist” has been a great inspiration in Covid times. The first time I encountered the book, it was a recorded version read by the author. Mr. Saltz’s voice is one of the best parts of the book as he brings his ideas to life. His delivery is funny and engaging. I have listened to and read the book several times (it’s short, so not a sterling claim) and find something new each time. After I read the book the first time, I found a new fount of creativity in my life and have been working harder and with more trust in myself as an artist. I often feel like a bit of a fraud when I call myself an artist. Mr. Saltz would likely say, “so what, get working!!”.
