Everyone has an artist inside them. In my newest book I am encouraging you to ignore what people think and get started making art - dig into creativity like the big chocolate cake that it is. 

Full of humor and inspiration, It's Only Painting  is a manifesto of sorts.  In the vein of "Steal Like An Artist" by Austin Kleon, "Big Magic" by Elizabeth Gilbert and "The War of Art" by Steven Pressfield,  I am breaking down inspiration into manegeable chunks and kicking the fear of creating right in the butt. 

Compiled from my lectures to students over 25 years of teaching, these essays on creativity are meant to get you thinking and working.  

Over 100 pages, dozens of color photographs.
