Why Learn 3 Secrets Of The Masters Now?
LIke many abstract painters, I started with representational art. As time went on, I wanted to create non-objective paintings but I didn't know how and couldn't find a teacher.
I also struggled with self doubt, overthinking, overworking, second guessing, getting stuck, not knowing what to do, not keeping it fresh and alive, and thinking it wasn't good enough.
When I realized I could stop struggling by making a simple change I'm about to share with you, everything shifted and my work was transformed.
Almost overnight, I went from wrestling with my art to confidently and consistently creating paintings that I loved.
That same year I was invited to co-create Doing The Work Of Your Life: Moving Beyond Fear In Abstract Painting with Katherine Aimone and Audrey Phillips. In this workshop I brought over 20 years of experience as an existential psychiatrist, creator of Creativity and Consciousness™ television program, 22 years of painting, and 7 years of teaching Experimental Painting workshops at Stanford Sierra Camp.
I'm on fire to share my newfound realization so I can help other artists transform their work as well.
It's my mission to guide artists to create paintings that are expressively alive, personal, confident, meaningful, and full of wonder.
In all of this, I've realized that painting brings up everything.
Art reflects life.
Indeed, creating art is akin to embarking on the hero's journey described in great literature such as Dante's Divine Comedy.
As artists, you're living your life and yet searching for something...meaning...a feeling of aliveness...mystery....expression.....
And then you're called and you answer the call and you're immediately plunged into the unknown. There are perils in that territory of 'not knowing': self doubt, fear, inner criticism, procrastination, perfectionism, boredom, avoidance, even resignation.
But there are guides to help you face the dangers and this is where I come in. Dante had Virgil. You have me.
I'll help you on your journey to realize that the greatest transformation in your life and your art is the inner work of trusting yourself.
I believe that as you learn to trust yourself you'll realize that you have everything you need to create the work of your life.
In this course, I'll guide you through the 3 secrets of the masters: the inner journey of trusting yourself and two technical concepts that make 90% of the difference in taking your painting to a whole new level.
