Found a nice book on Creativity the other day at Barnes & Noble - "The Creative Edge" by Mary Todd Beam. I went there to look for something on printmaking and ended up enthralled with this volume instead. I began reading it last evening and I can't wait to try some of the fun exercises. Full of good tips and ideas to prod your imagination and get you out of an artist's rut :-) She has included several other artist's works and methods along with her own, providing a simple variety of styles and tricks. It is reminding me of things I'd forgotten... as well as some things I'd never tried, or even thought of. Can't imagine anyone not enjoying the inventive vibes found within. She is also the author of "Celebrate Your Creative Self" and is featured in the video "An Acrylic Journey: From Trash to Treasure" both of which I hope to check out eventually.
