One artist who struck me as particularly inspiring is Suzi Blu, whose multi-layered rendering of a self-portrait is titled "Art Saved a Child Like Me." The artist battled her own demons until she picked up a paint brush and discovered the healing power of art. Her story is very much a testimony to what a pencil or paint brush and a piece of paper can do for the human spirit.
You don't have to be an artist to enjoy this book or to receive inspiration from it. There are many artists to read about, their stories and their work and why they do what they do. Best of all is what their work has done for them and how it can inspire you and help you understand yourself.
Thank you to the author for giving us this beautiful book to enjoy over and over again.
While reading the book, I couldn't help thinking that many of these projects would be really fun to promote during adult art retreat session, as well. In fact, I have been inspired to begin planning an art retreat due to reading this book.
It was so very helpful on so many levels!
I recommend it! It is one that I have lent to my teenage grand daughters, and purchased a copy of for my daughter.
Weather you are pursuing art or just about anything else this book is great!
