The author speaks to her readers in an easy, whimsical, and relaxed way throughout the book. Her writing voice is so comfortable I can envision sitting in her kitchen, drinking tea, and having a brainstorming session with my newfound friend.
As an artist, you may have found yourself up against a wall, facing a blank page, stumped by a project, and scratching your head. This book is for anyone who has ever become stuck, with a cacophony of inner voices nagging you to get to work. Ultimately, it all becomes a sort of rush hour gridlock in your head, and nothing much is ever accomplished until the traffic is unjammed, your creativity unblocked. Drawing Out the Muses is more than just a road map around the traffic jam of creative blocks, it is a treasure map that will put you on the path to artistic discovery.
Levin’s book is for all visual artists, regardless of their level of experience or the medium in which they work. I found it easy to imagine applying her ideas to any artistic endeavor I might undertake, and already have an installation piece in mind for my garden.
I read Levin’s book start to finish, but you could just as easily begin by choosing a specific inspiration from Levin’s eleven Finding Inspiration chapters (Nature, Household Items, Life Events, Music and Sound, Dreams, etc.) and take your own meandering path through this book.
Anyone stuck in a creative rut and in need of a change, looking for new ideas or a different way of approaching projects would benefit from Drawing Out the Muses. Thank you, Ms. Levin, for a treasure of a book.
