While we are on the subject of creative freedom (see my previous blog posts: Is it beauty or expression that you love? and My painting experience with The Painting Experience and Stewart Cubley), I wanted to present another magnificent voice in the field of intuitive painting.
If you recall, the foundational book Life, Paint and Passion, Reclaiming the Magic of Spontaneous Expression was co-written by Michele Cassou and Stewart Cubley. Each of them went in different directions from there, Michele with Point Zero Painting and Stewart with The Painting Experience.
Here’s an inspiring bit from one of her blog posts and book, Questions to Awaken Your Creative Power to the Fullest:
Forget About the End Product
“Pick up your brush and enjoy the call of the creative void. Don’t choose your color. Let the choice come to you. Take the color that is alive for you at that moment, the one that calls to you. You do not have to like it or even know what you are going to do with it. No need to plan your painting or organize your space.
“Experience the live connection between you and Your painting.”
– Michele Cassou, Questions to Awaken Your Creative Power to the Fullest
I look forward to digging deeper into Michele’s work and the Cassou Institute! Check out a couple videos here.
