Making Art A Practice (part 2)

I want to give this book to my friends, whether they are artists or not. Cat writes in an honest and non-judemental tone where the reader is easy with her voice and open to her ideas to help us make Art a Practice. I wrote about Cat here, where I explained that she asked to use some of my images for her new book. Findhorn Press did a fine job with the layout and design and they used 3 of my artworks in the book.

Cat's new book arrived in my mail today. I've read through to page 60 of the 125 page book. As I read the first chapters, I heard myself saying, "yes, exactly!". Cat writes about how to get ourselves into a place of "Flow" in our creative practice. She gives 30 action practices, some based in yoga, to help us connect to our inner-artist self.

Stop in over there to look at her work and perhaps link over to Findhorn Press to order a copy today.
