"I suspect we don't agree on many of the points you raise. Clearly for you art is of itself and rises from nature as naturally as you say a honey comb. For me, art rises only (so far as we know) from humans, the idea of art rises only (so far as we…"

"Art doesn't parallel nature. Art is its own thing IN nature and it's just as much a part of nature as a spider web or honeycomb. When you create a painting of a mountain you're not creating an abstraction of the mountain, you're creating a painting.…"

"I love the idea of paralleling nature. Very much what I mean by abstracting. Not possible to BE it, but only to 
reproduce or parallel what our senses bring to us. Thanks for this!"

    We have one more free download offer scheduled to help launch this revision.: March 15 and 16.  I will post something about it as the date gets closer.
    Best to you,
    Sandra

Just about the best...when something fits, you feel it, I feel it, in my body. The sensation of a permeable warmth with my mind relaxed and ready to question, probe...some might simply call it interest, but interest needs to be met in the outer world. This course is a meeting of Interest and Inner Desire. 

If you have ever had an interest in Alchemy, join this webinar.
