My studio — "managed chaos."

It is so important for artists to study those who have gone before us, and I have a very large collection of art books in my library that I refer to on a daily basis. In particular, those focused on American impressionist painters. Standouts include:

Atkinson Grimshaw by Alexander Robertson

The Best of Tom Thomson by Joan Murray

John Frederick Kensett: An American Master by John Paul Driscoll & John K Howat

The Life and Work of Winslow Homer by Gordon Hendricks

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts is my favorite non-art book, and one that I often refer to for advice and inspiration.

Because of my work as a commercial fisherman, I’d like to mention an animated documentary film called, Kiss the Water, that embodies both art and fishing. It is the life story of Megan Boyd, the most renowned salmon fly tyer that ever lived. You can watch this online and I highly recommend it. Click here to view the trailer.

Scott Terry's paintings are on view at The Granary Gallery in West Tisbury.
