It’s good to immerse yourself in things that are creative. Oliver Wendell Holmes suggested immersing yourself twice a week in music and you would find that it “is for the soul what the water bath is for the body.” What good advice! For painters, when not immersed in the act of painting, it is refreshing to immerse yourself in good art by others. The library is a treasure trove of art books. As for magazines, my favourite is International Artist for the diversity of good work found there. And sometimes as a treat I’ll drop in to Chapters and see if there are any other current art magazines of interest for sale. So much to be inspired by! Do you have a favourite art book or magazine?
