I have met numerous artists in my life, many of whom seem to be unfulfilled in their creative journey. I feel it is the same for many professionals. I personally believe that when we start on this path, we have great passion; a burning desire. This is what establishes the goals we want to achieve. These goals may consist of getting that job in the studio, or the project we wanted to do. We may find that once this happens, we become dormant, and stop setting those goals. It then turns into complaints, frustration, and the constant questioning of, "What is it that I really want to do?" This book is a collection of my trials, and personal thoughts about life as an artist. It's also about reminding ourselves of the importance of setting new goals, creating that passion and vision, and the courage and perseverance to ignite your dreams again. This book is written for you.
Passion for Life is Silver's latest book, giving insight into his philosophies in life drawing and life itself. With over 200 figure drawings in many different styles and techniques, Passion for Life will inspire and give the viewer a look into the art of life drawing with a whole new perspective never seen before. Passion for life, and all it contains is an insightful book, not just for the drawings, but the message it sends. The quotes, and inspirational thoughts, are not just for artists, but for anyone who aspires to be happy, content and productive.
