Flora Bowley, author of Creative Revolutions, Personal Transformation through Brave Intuitive Painting, has created an amazing book. The bright colors on the cover are eye-catching. The blend of palettes runs throughout the pages of this book. I love that the author shares her own story about how she came to, and interacts with, painting. Not only that, but she explains that everyone has his/her own story and painting is one way to identify with that story. She lists what materials you need to explore painting on your own. Bare feet may even be involved- anything to blossom that creative part of your mind. I love that she incorporates music into her painting. The exercises she recommends are fantastic. I did a few of them in art school myself, like drawing with my non-dominant hand. I've always been quite creative, so this is right down my alley. If you need a break, a stress reliever, or just a fun Saturday with your children, this is the book for you. It isn't just painting. The author incorporates music, movement, candles, textures, and so much more. The section on altar love is phenomenal. I highly encourage you to keep this book as a resource that can be read, and used, over and over again.
