Praised for its authenticity and practical approach, this timely volume has been updated to inspire a new generation of visual artists in their quest for creative growth. Completely new to this edition is a chapter on current events, such as the attacks of September 11, and how they affect an artist's creative sensitivity and process. Written by an experienced artist and writer, this stimulating companion provides deep and personal information into the way that an artist thinks and works. Filled with exercises, mediation topics, and creativity techniques, the book explains how to heighten awareness of the world around you; how memories and play can trigger creative inspiration; and how to increase sensitivity and broaden your vision, including: journal writing; talking with other artists; travelling; enhancing your studio's productivity; creative brainstorming; and other helpful exercises. For artists seeking to ground themselves during times of creative burnout, or simply seek an hour of personal coaching and encouragement, this book promises a wealth of surprising answers and stimulating thought.
