I started painting abstracts on my own as a way of healing from a divorce. Being curious about the meanings and interpretations of my art, I was delighted find this book-Making Marks! In it are the answers to my questions! The author, Elaine Clayton offers great insight and provides a clear path for you to learn how to interpret your own doodles, art, or stream drawings, as she calls them. Her stories resonate so true to me. She explains her journey and her process clearly. It's fascinating! I find the exercises in the book liberating. They are a great way to get unstuck from self judgement and build self confidence. Read this if you are interested in: intuition, the creative force, learning who you really are, learning about your emotions, knowing yourself better, unlocking your potential, a self healing journey, self care, doing intuitive readings from stream drawings for yourself and others...I highly recommend this book!
