A Catalyst for Unlearning
“Life, Paint and Passion is a book about unlearning. It is not meant to be used as a textbook, or even as a course in creativity, but as a catalyst.”
Are you ready to find and liberate your creative spirit and paint for the pure joy of it? This book, based on over 30 years of experience, is a tool or “catalyst” that guides you to uncover your authentic self and tap more fully into your intuition allowing you to do so.
No experience required. “The power of painting lies in the creative process itself, not in the resulting product,” the authors say.
Michele Cassou and Stewart Cubley bring us this lively book that takes a deeper look.
Here Stewart shares about the courage to engage in the process of self awareness during the creative process.
Life, Paint And Passion is a deeply involving approach to using the creative process as a tool for self-discovery. With vibrant and contagious enthusiasm, the authors liberate the reader's urge to create freely and spontaneously, as a painter or an artist in another medium, purely for the process of exploration, not for result.
With eloquence and simplicity, the authors encourage the reader to journey inward toward his or her authentic self and discover the unique intuition awaiting there. It is this intuition that provides all the tools the reader needs to crumble the barrier between the innermost self and its uncensored manifestation.
Through lively interviews with students, the authors explore painting as a practice that facilitates the ecstasy of unfettered expression. With simple brushes, a few dishes of paint, and this book, the reader will be able to coax the hidden self out of the heart and onto a paper.
Life, Paint And Passion is the result of nearly thirty years of intensive work with the painting process. It provides powerful insights into the act of creation, a solid base for facing and transcending creative blocks, and brings fresh perceptions and healing to life.
