Between Two Books, a Creative Journey

July 24, 2018

Hello again.  Hope this post finds you all well.


If you know me personally, then you know that I have a deep connection to music.  I get a physiological reaction to certain notes and instruments and pretty much treat live music like going to a worship session.  My first hero was Stevie Nicks, who I still adore.  And then came Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine. 


I can't explain how much I adore her honesty, her poetry, and her general aesthetic.  Also, I am in love with being part of Between Two Books, the FATM book club led by Florence and the magical Leah and Emma.  If you don't know about this, here's a link- do join in!  We are currently reading The Lonely City by Olivia Laing, a beautiful book about art, psychology, and loneliness.


What does this have to do with art?  A lot.  We find inspiration in many places- through conversation, through reading, through observing.  Creating art is an empathic exercise.  Florence Welch's own book, Useless Magic, is full of scrawled poetry, saints, pre-Raphaelites, and Morris prints.  It's like opening a heart and laying it on your lap.


It's a strange thing to find someone who has your exact aesthetic. 


Painting and drawing for #BTBmagicalcrafts on instagram has been pure joy, like sitting down in your most comfortable chair and sinking into it.  I was lucky enough to have a painting chosen for the Between Two Books feed as a result.
