Acrylic Painting With Passion is Tesia Blackburn’s newest book (available for pre-order). The title speaks of passion, but as you and I know, words can only go so far. It’s when I saw the art on the front cover that I sat back in my chair and whispered, “whoa.” This is a book by a passionate artist, for passionate artists. With chapters like “Fifteen What-Ifs” and “Letting the Brain Play,” I can see that it’s a treasure box of inspiration. Not to mention that it also covers techniques for acrylic and mixed media art. And the subtitle, Explorations for Creating Art that Nourishes the Soul, further wraps up what you’ll discover within the pages.
So when you find yourself questioning why you create art, take a deep breath, and celebrate the passion that keeps you going, that makes your blood flow. There’s no point in denying it to anyone, especially yourself. Be the artist you are.(If this statement speaks to you, share it on Twitter.)
