The artist's search for unique, meaningful expression, on paper or canvas, in clay or marble, wood or bronze, is actually mirrored in each of us. Whether we are composing a letter, a song lyric, or a landscape, the desire is the same: to express ourselves easily, elegantly, and eloquently. An artist by vocation and profession, Roberta Weir guides the reader with a steady voice and a sure hand. Part 1 describes the rediscovery of and reliance upon instinct, intuition and inspiration; Part 2 examines the mastery of technique; and Part 3 brings us full circle: having reached a degree of comfort with the nature of inspiration and the mechanics of rendering artistic forms, we are asked to cast it all aside--to stop thinking about it--and just do it.--From publisher description.
