I've gotten this from the lending library several times, but I need, I NEED this book. *laughs* It is a wonderful, compassionately-written powerhouse of a painting book. :) When I was reading it I truly felt as though I was understood, sympathized with, shored up, and empowered to awesomeness. *achem* On that note... Read it. If you paint, if you want to paint - read it.
