What lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us. Ralph Waldo Emerson Join me for a painting weekend inspired by poetry. Poetry and literature can be instrumental in unlocking insights, nourishing imagination and so enriching our inner lives. Finding ourselves surprised by creativity, both our own and that of others, can provide the threshing floor for painting, Being surprised out of our habits, being moved out of the known through poetry - this inner movement is what enables us to create something fresh. How can we let a new life of creativity bubble up in us?
