Recommended. This very personable DVD presents practical and inspired steps to awaken the artist within. Gold gently asserts that this kind of painting is not about technique, but more about touching into a deep primal place where feelings can express themselves, and heal disharmony. She demonstrates the freedom of expression that allows the artist soul to emerge. She encourages attention to detail while remaining open to what the painting reveals, either by adding to it until it is finished, or allowing it to evolve and morph into another subject altogether. This process will become your alchemical gold.

Aviva Gold turned my idea of art upside down and I have never been the same since. I found the freedom to express my inner experience.

Aviva Gold teaches painting as everyday shamanism. Paint like a child and you call back your vital soul energy. I highly recommend this DVD.

Aviva's compassionate voice of calm, and clear step by step explanations lured me into the essence of the Painting From The Source process. The DVD's montage style shows pieces of Aviva's workshops woven together with a practical guide to getting started at home. The entire package is inspirational.
