Living Color by Natalie Goldberg

Natalie with painting

“I’ve been painting for 45 years–as long as I’ve been writing and meditating. Painting has been my secret delight and has only had public notice with the publication of Living Color: Painting, Writing, and the Bones of Seeing (Abrams, 2013), Top of My Lungs: Poems and Paintings (Overlook Press, 2003), and The Essential Writer’s Notebook (Peter Pauper Press, 2003).”
