9781594732263: The Painting Path: Embodying Spiritual Discovery through Yoga, Brush and Color

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!

Review:

"A wonderfully potent potpourri of technique, direction and spiritual discovery."
Art Times (Marion, NY)

"A wonderful mix of spiritual insight and artistic rigor.... A fresh recipe for artistic development tinged with a yogic fragrance."
Staats Fasoldt, artist and director, Woodstock School of Art

“Chapters flow easily.... Materials lists are precise enough for beginners but contain plenty of options for more experienced artists.... Impressive.... Encouraging.”
Publishers Weekly

“Draws you into yourself with both playfulness and surprising depth. With artistic exercises, body-mind centered practices and contemplative questions, I couldn't wait to get started.”
Rasmani Deborah Orth, Ed.D., senior workshop programmer, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health

“A playful, imaginative resource ... like a fantastic painting workshop with a wonderful teacher.... Easy to follow ... filled with inspiration and surprisingly deep awareness.”
Spirit of Change

“Accessible and engaging ... draws a unique connection between painting and yoga. The projects ground the body and stimulate the mind while nurturing the spirit. A highly recommended tool for creative self-discovery!”
Cory Richardson-Lauve, author, The Scrapbooking Journey: A Hands-On Guide to Spiritual Discovery

“Attractive.... Recommended.”
Catholic Library World

“Kindles the spirit and summons the muse for whole-hearted self-expression. Warm and inviting, this is a book for everyone who has ever longed to journey the painting path.”
Karen Arp-Sandel, artist educator, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health and IS183 Art School of the Berkshires

“A great way to integrate the heart and soul. [Presents] clear explanations and draws similarities between seemingly diverse concepts. There is no better way to realize that we have all the tools within us to understand the world around us.”
Michael Mele, director, Il Chiostro arts workshops

“A gentle, effective guide to the power of creating art. It's already helped me see things in a new way.”
Linda Skolnik, coauthor, The Knitting Way: A Guide to Spiritual Self-Discovery
