Review "An original and stimulating memoir that takes readers into the mind and heart of an artist." -Kirkus Reviews (starred) "This book lets me get into the head of an artist. It surprises me. It entertained me. It educated me. It made me want to read it slowly so I can enjoy it longer." -Ali Julia Hall of Fame Top Ten Reviewer "Educational, enlightening, and warmly evocative of the rapture of creativity, Brian has succeeded in writing about art - and us." -Grady Harp Hall of Fame Top 100 Reviewer Vine Voice About the Author Widely considered to be one of the finest American painters of his generation, Brian Rutenberg has spent forty years honing a distinctive method of compressing the rich color and form of his native coastal South Carolina into complex landscape paintings that imbue material reality with a deep sense of place.
