Artist Linda Schweitzer offered her thoughts, stating, "I hardly read the art magazines anymore. They mostly seem to be "pay to play"". Artist Phil Kendall offered his two cents, stating, "The art press ignores what good art there is to be found today.". Artist Arthur Barnes responded to this discussion, stating, "Good inspirational art is timeless whether it was created centuries ago or yesterday. All is valid.".

2.) Recommend a summer reading list for artists. (Click here to take part in this art forum discussion)

Artist Gayle Faucette Wisbon offered a suggestion, stating, "I just started reading Barney Davey's "How to Profit from the Art Print Market". Enjoying it very much and wish I had bought it sooner.". Artist Denise Brown added to the summer reading list, stating, "If you love horse art and a great horse story, you'll love my new book, "Wind, Wild Horse Rescue". It has over 100 of my horse sketches throughout the book.".

3.) Your thoughts concerning digital art? (Click here to respond to this art forum question)

Artist Thomas Hodges offered his thoughts, stating, "I am confident that in the future, certain digital artworks will be viewed and revered as fine art.". Artist John G. Anderson responded to this question, stating, "I think without a doubt that digital art is true art. In fact, some of the programs used in creating digital art blur the lines between digital art and painting (Studio Artist is a good example).". Artist Jim Springett offered his two cents, stating, "Digital art is not painting and painting is not digital art either, but both are not exclusive of one another and use similar elements to make their works beautiful.".
