I ran into an old friend a few days ago at an American Advertising Federation luncheon at the Chattanoogan. Her name is Eve Oldham. Eve is a very famous artist, and an awesome person. Although very lovable, she doesn’t pull any punches, and tells it like it is. She has that reputation.
Eve may be best known for her collection of of distintive women, which she painted between 1985 and 1995. This collection has been published and is registered in the United States Library of Congress.
Besides painting, holding seminars in her studio, speaking and teaching, she has added writing. Her most recent series of books are called The Essential Apprenticeship – The Simple Skills of Self Transformation for the Primary Artist. In this book she refers to dancing through life and an imaginative partner. Eve states that, “The 10 simple personal dialogues and emotive exercises of The Essential Apprenticeship reveal an ancient, yet revolutionary, path to one’s first love, one’s best self.”
I immediately asked her if she would allow me to publish an article she had written and happily she agreed. The article is called Cleanse the Senses. It is so beautifully illustrated that I decided to link to the original article rather than copy it here. Here is a link to Cleanse the Senses. It is very short and simple, yet in this simplicity is great wisdom. I hope you enjoy it.
