(That's me with Flora's book)
(Me and Flora at Flora's old studio)
Flora is a dear friend and I'm just incredibly proud to know her and of this beautiful book that she has created. She stuck to her guns when it came to the kind of content she wanted to write about, how it would be designed, laid out, etc etc and the result is a book the reflects at the core. For anybody who has ever written a book, this is a big success.
Looking for a straight up technique/how-to book that will show you how to paint paintings that look just like Flora's? This is not that book. Looking for a book that will give you insight and tools and techniques on how to uncover your own rhythm of unfolding, taking risk, and trusting the painting process so that your own paintings and style emerge along with some pretty significant lessons that transcend painting world and dive into everyday world? Then this is THE book. Go get it. Can't recommend it enough.
ps: For those of you who want to get a closer look at Flora's painting process, check out her online painting class - worth every penny and incredibly fairly priced for what you get.
