Natalie Goldberg has a new book. Living Color: Painting, Writing, and the Bones of Seeing.
I love Natalie. (even when I hate her – some of you know what I’m talking about) Writing Down the Bones was the first (the only?) book about writing that made me slam it shut and grab a pen.
Natalie’s paintings do the same thing.
Childlike, out of proportion, skewed angles, and full of juicy life energy – her art work makes me grab a paint brush!
Natalie’s writing about art reminds me that beauty is in front of my face.
Right now. Every day.
That’s true…..about her art and writing. Her colors are so much fun to see….I suppose because of the freedom she gives them. P

I think Natalie’s art is best suited for illustrating kid’s books. And her teaching style is best suited for zen robots.
But ‘Writing down the Bones” is a masterpiece. Are you getting the hate and the love?
