I thought you might like to see this photo of what was in my back yard this morning. The interesting thing to remember is we are just a few short miles from Washington, DC! Ohh, I wonder what that means? A fox...Washington, DC? Well, go ahead and draw your own conclusions. This little guy hung out for maybe 10 or 15 minutes in our yard.
Today I have a book I would like to share with you. Shaun McNiff wrote Trust The Process to help people heal through their art, but I have found it does just what you give me...the permission to move forward to make the art I need to make. The courage to keep on going even when I wonder if it is really worth it. This is one of those books I refer to when I have doubts. I have also shared it with a friend who found it also inspiring. Normally, I don't know when the doubts will hit, but I know where to turn when they do...you and this book.
My apologies for this image. I couldn't seem to get a good shot of this book...I think it has been to well used and doesn't want to lay still with me hanging over it.
Along the same lines, this morning I found this blog which was just set up for a new book called, Art From Intuition. While it is not yet available for sale, look for it on the market next month. I think I will look into this particular book, too.
I like to have books like this on my shelf...being the book person I am. I have a stack beside my bed, another by my chair and a lot in my studio! But there are some which are just favorites. Do you have favorite books you return to when you just need that extra boost?
Have a Great Weekend! Be Safe! Be Creative!
