This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Discover the creativity that lies hidden within you—and express it!

“Painting—because it is such a flexible and adaptable form of art—gives us unparalleled freedom to express what we are feeling. Through colors, forms, lines, even fabrics, we can tap into our deepest emotions and thoughts; we can access our very source. Given this opportunity, we unburden our spirits and are freed to express ourselves.”
—from the Introduction

What can you learn about yourself through painting? How can a piece of artwork reflect your own personality, beliefs and values? How can touching brush to canvas help you portray something about yourself that is otherwise inexpressible?

Delve into these questions and more in this imaginative, creative resource. Professional artist and beloved teacher Linda Novick leads you on an exploration of the divine connection you can experience through art. Each chapter includes a simple yoga-inspired breathing and stretching exercise to focus your mind and refresh your body, along with an original art project that helps you explore a theme essential to both your creativity and your spirituality. Whether you’re a painting novice or an accomplished artist, no matter your faith and background, this engaging book has a place for you. Experience the joy of unbridled creativity!

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 24, 2007 – With a style reminiscent of Julia Cameron, Novick, a professional painter, former gallery owner and yoga master, presents painting not only as an art form but as a vehicle of spiritual exploration. She's clearly taught before. Chapters flow easily, dotted and crossed with inspired quotations from sages, artists and writers, as well as anecdotes and observations from her own experience. Materials lists are precise enough for beginners but contain plenty of options for more experienced artists. Most impressive of all are the simple descriptions of the yoga exercises, something not easy to accomplish in writing. Only an enclosed CD with yoga instructions could have made this part of the book more perfect. Full-color examples of each of the increasingly more complex painting projects provide students with even more encouragement. This is not a paint-by-numbers guide to God. The spirituality comes from within the artist, as techniques of painting and pose become more developed. Novick's encouraging tone coupled with a penchant for expansive definition painting to her encompasses everything from oil and soft pastels to actual watercolor and oil paints; spirit includes belief in a higher being whether named as God or not makes room for a wide audience.
