Publisher Comments:

Imagine yourself painting with no hesitations, no conflicts. Your brush dips into pots of vibrantly colored paint; inner inspiration guides your hand into lines and shapes that find their perfect places on the paper . . .

Welcome! I'm Aviva Gold, your guide to the magic source. As children, all of us lived and painted intuitively. And as adults we can re-create the boundless joy of unselfconscious art by setting aside intellectual critique and self-doubt and reconnecting with the source. Remember standing at an easel as a child and painting in a trancelike state of wonder? Somewhere along the line this freedom gets trained out of us, and we are either categorized as artists or not.

Paint and remember! Return to the easel with the same childlike sense of play. My program is not about regimentation. Learn to let go of inhibitions, relinquish control, and embrace the source. Using simple materials--tempera paints, newsprint--paint without worrying about the end product.

Just let go, and begin! Every human being is an artist. In Bali, one word means both "human" and "artist." Just show up and face a blank piece of paper. Tap into the source. Revitalize! Transform! Now, imagine yourself painting . . .

Synopsis:

In the words of Aviva Gold, "Every human being is an artist". As children we live and paint intuitively, approaching the canvas with confidence and spirit. As adults, however, we become our own worst critics, stifling inspiration with intellectual doubts. The author's innovative approach, a blend of spiritual, artistic, and psychological elements, shows readers how to rediscover the creative self by reconnecting with "the source" — our instinctual center. Painting from the Source allows the novice to put brush to paper as a means of personal growth, and the experienced painter to feel the passion he or she may have lost.
-- Aviva Gold's Painting from the Source workshops have been featured at Omega: the Open Center, Common Boundary conferences, and many other places across the United States and around the world.
