Painting A Pathway Home focuses with penetrating insight into the process of painting as a spiritual practice. This is no how-to-paint book, but addresses how the painting process delivers us energetically closer to our deepest spiritual nature as Awareness seeking self realization through painting. Drago's understanding of the act of painting as spiritual expression takes painters to a level of working with their art, that is at once new to us all and as ancient as the beginning of art itself. From explaining why and what the cave painters were doing to the impact of Pop Art upon a young art student, and on to recognize the manifesting power in all artists, Drago articulates the spiritual dimension of the creative process. This book belongs beside every painter's easel as proof that being an artist is not something one faces alone. If any artist doubts her or his power and influence upon society, this book will erase that doubt and empower all forms of creative expression.
