The Naked Vibes Show features conversations with musicians, artists & healers to ignite your creative genius & elevate you in your spiritual growth.

2:10 - Gloria Newton, artist, says she got started late in the game. Julia Cameron, in The Artist's Way, talked about how she'd still be the same age in ten years, but wouldn't know how to play the piano, so it's right to get started at any age.
3:05 - Gloria explains how the “unknown” is what keeps her going in her creative work.
3:45 - Most people fear the unknown. Gloria did at one time, but her art has taken her beyond it. She talks about what shuts us all down & the revelation of what breaks us free.

12:51 - Gloria studied art history & was influenced by Helen Frankenthaler, Paul Klee, Pollack, Gorky.

14:47 - Gloria doesn’t like to put a finite definition on her work, but abstract towards non-objective probably comes the
