My Painting Guidance:
Su Shih, Wang Wei, & the Nanga
John Diamond, M.D.
ISBN: 978-1-890995-61-4 (23 pp.)
“I have for quite some time felt very strongly that my painting is guided. It always seemed not that I was doing it, but that it was being done through me.”
Renowned healer Dr. John Diamond explores the influence of some of the spirit guides who have inspired his therapeutic painting: Su Shih, a Chinese literatus of the Sung Dynasty; the great poet-painter Wang Wei; and the approach of the Japanese nanga school. A jewel among his writings, My Painting Guidance is not only compelling in its own right, but also offers a profoundly original statement about the very nature of the creative process.
