Partnership With the Muse

“I wake up with a gnawing sensation of dissatisfaction. Already I feel fear. … I’m not thinking about the work. I’ve already consigned that to the Muse. What I am aware of is Resistance. I feel it in my guts. I afford it the utmost respect, because I know it can defeat me on any given day as easily as a drink can overcome an alcoholic.”

~ Steven Pressfield

Joy To The World!

“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”~Albert Camus

It’s December 1st, and I just watched a beautiful sunset within this brief window of no rain in a week of much-needed rainy days.

The days are shorter, the nights longer. Cozy nights by a fire, soups, holiday movies, and lots of reading – all call to us, whereas six months ago we were still out running errands and working and just being busy until the sun set much later in the day.

Intuition: The Sixth Sense

"There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. 

There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by the feeling for the order lying behind the appearance."

The Birthing of a Book - Dr. Laura Basha

Book is birthing ...

THE BIRTHING OF A BOOK

I will be completing my first book and sending it to the publisher this month. It has been a long process! I find I struggle with writing in a very similar way that I struggle with painting, yet also the fulfillment from a writing session well done is the same deep satisfying fulfillment as a good afternoon in the painting studio.

Collage: Art That Opens Deeper Channels

bashacollage

“Collage is the twentieth century’s greatest invention.”  ~ Robert Motherwell

 

While artists have been utilizing combinations of mixed media for some time, “collage” garnered attention as its own art form, a medium in its own right, at the turn of the 20th century, a result of the creative endeavors of Cubists Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque.
