The Artist's Way: (Link)
Spiritual rehabilitation is probably the best way I can describe this journey. Writing three entire pages of thoughts in the morning every day is like forcing yourself to sit down over breakfast with yourself. Have that hard conversation, confront that looming deadline, and build camaraderie within yourself. I can’t express wholly enough the benefits that have come from this practice. You tend to lose yourself in thought more often, and access the creative subconscious easily. Meditation comes from simplistic things like gardening.
I have written 60 pages so far of thoughts, dreams, hopes, desires, hatreds. Nothing has made clearer my purpose, which is to create. I am here to design, represent, and paint the surreal sublimity that is the divine creation in which we all reside. I seek only to represent the true beauty of existence, that all should seek to revere.
Sounds corny I know, but I don’t care! I have been painting on fire the last few weeks as the activities, alone time, and writing pages (as silly as that sounds), change my worldview. I really do recommend reading this book if you are reading this. It will change your world.
If you want to come paint with me, come find me in Annapolis painting wherever the sun shines.
