"Painting from the Soul"
Billie Bourgeois -
"Painting from the Soul" Taking the fear out of abstract art and of
making art in general, I lead participants through a series of exercises and
tools to expand creative thinking and mark making. Artistic self-discovery
happens before you know it. This workshop is good for beginners as well
as long time painters who just want to loosen up, get out of a rut, or just
break out into somethimg different for a while
Billie Bourgeois - My work is intuitive abstraction, I perceive from the inside
out. To begin painting I make marks with paint on a white space and proceed
to dialogue with the piece. I usually have twenty or more pieces going at one
time, each informing the next.
Having learned to 'trust the process' I love to guide other artists in working
'from their souls', working from a place very deep and personal. To do this, I
lead individuals through a series of delightful, freeing exercises, introducing
them to new tools and approaches to 'mark making' on the sometimes
intimidating white space. I teach a way to paint and never get stuck, how to
have at least 20 paintings going all at the same time, staying in the artistic
flow. In my workshops, artistic self-discovery happens before they know it!
