Part of my journey into embracing (being OK and passionately hopeful about) being an Artist, has been the wonderful help of many books on the topic. These books have encouraged, confirmed, spurred, and corrected my thinking in countless ways. I am thankful to have had the time to read, saturate, and share with others what I have learned.
May they be a blessing to you as well, as you labor through your unique call into the Arts.
(In no particular order)

"Creative Call", "Art and Fear", "The Artists' Way" (not written from Christian worldview)
There are a few more on my wish list, but haven't read yet:
