Synopsis

Filled with elegant watercolors and inspirational prose, Art as a Way of Life offers reflections on art and creativity, empowering us to discover and nurture the creative spirit within. It is an encouraging book for people wanting to live, work, and love in the creative spirit.

A wide range of creative innovators, including Carl Rogers, Robert Henri, Tom Jay, Henry David Thoreau, Ansel Adams, and Vincent van Gogh, contribute poignant and moving thoughts, quotes, sayings, interviews, and poems on the beauty of love and art. Through these contemporary and past theorists, musicians, artists, writers, and poets, Art as a Way of Life explores what it is to be passionate, inspired, and blissful.

Excerpt

“It’s a great relief to me to know that I can actually be creative and be happy at the same time.”
—James W. Hall

“A life of creativity is a life of risk. It is a life of going beyond your ordinary, of embracing the odyssey, of leaving your familiar, of trying to make a contribution.”
—Godfrey Reggio

“Art is simply a result of expression during right feeling.… Any material will do. After all, the object is not to make art, but to be in the wonderful state which makes art inevitable.”
—Robert Henri
