These are moments that I love. Completing a project like this one. I have been working on this book compiling the content and designing the final edition over the past six months. Not continually of course, because there are competing things all the time. You know how life can get. Then a gap opened up and I knew that I wanted this book published by the end of October. Made it ... just.
What is it all about?
Your creative path is seldom clear. Artists, writers and all creatives face conflicting messages, resistance and self-doubt. This book is written by an artist for artists and creatives who face these challenges. Designed to provide a weekly dose of inspiration or reassurance that this too shall pass.
A Weekly Supplement
Filled with thoughts, suggestions and ideas to remind you that your art matters. To push through the dark moments and find the light. If you value a creative life then you will find something in this book to inspire, encourage and invigorate your week of creativity. Look at it as a weekly reminder for jaded artists to take a moment and get back on track.
Painting is a source of endless pleasure,
If there was ever any doubt then this quote by Balthus clears it away. Creating brings anguish and pleasure. It is the pleasure that keeps us coming back. But the anguish keeps us from getting uppity. And bored if I am honest. Too much ease and success is boring. Artists benefit from a little anguish.
Solace in Work
I hope that this book brings a little balance when the anguish gets in the way. Also to remind artists that there is still work to be done. That keeps the mind calm and busy.
Where to find a copy?
You can get the e-book and paperback from Amazon. If you prefer a PDF copy please get one here.
I hope that you enjoy the book.
