Much is made of the spiritual aspects of creating artwork, from subject matter to techniques, dark nights of the soul, and painterly frustration. The most important component in painting spiritually is, of course, the artist. The experience of creating art is not always a blissful one. Often the peace needed to find inspiration is not present. Ms. Bryant presents her readers with meditative essays that are art lessons in both watercolor and spirituality designed to help artists "get out of their own way" and create more soulfully.
