I am an artist as well, so when I saw this book I was immediately interested. I always want to see what other artists are thinking and building and creating. I spend hours at museums, sometimes visiting the same location three or four times to stare at the same photograph or painting or sculpture, always wondering what that artist was thinking and feeling as they created the piece that has touched me so strongly. As an artist I do also realize that all creatives have their own thoughts, styles, inspirations, and directions. The pieces in this book were thought-provoking and unique, and definitely garnered conversation as I did share this book with a number of fellow artists and friends, interested to hear their take on the pages. While I am glad I was able to experience Russell's art, I do not particularly know if I enjoyed it.
