In this invaluable companion to The Artist’s Way, Cameron provides further insight into one of her most powerful Artist’s Way tools: The Artist’s Date. The Artist's Date is a block of time that aspiring and established artists devote to stepping aside from their work to engage in simple, fun activities that nourish their creative spirits. All artists have experienced creative blocks and know the feeling of keeping their noses to the grindstone, making their days feel only dutiful and drab. According to Cameron, what is needed is a good dose of enforced play, whether it involves a trip to a museum or toy store or simply baking a pie. In The Miracle of the Artist's Date, Cameron presents 52 ideas for Artist's Dates—one for each week of the year—that will inspire and delight. Also included in this e-special is an excerpt from The Artist's Way for Parents, the most highly requested addition to Cameron's canon of work, as well as an excerpt from The Prosperous Heart, in which Cameron offers the practical financial tools to guide you to prosperity in all areas of your life.

Hideo Date (Hid-day-oh Dah-tay) is a painter ripe for rediscovery. An issei, he once described himself as an artist who scorned the strictly traditional in favor of a unique style, one characterized by an interest in sinuous line and bold color. Trained in Tokyo and Los Angeles, Date associated with avant-garde art circles in pre-World War II Los Angeles. He was a member of the influential West Coast Art Students League and a founding member of the Los Angeles Oriental Artists Group with artist friends Benji Okubo and Tyrus Wong. Together, these artists associated with the influential American painter Stanton MacDonald-Wright, who, in turn, looked to the art of Asia for inspiration. During the 1930s Date worked for the Federal Art Project of the Work Projects Administration (WPA), which commissioned him to paint a mural on Terminal Island in Southern California. The mural was never finished, due to the outbreak of war. Like many other issei and nisei artists, Date's incarceration during the war had an irreparable impact on his life and artistic career. While he continued to paint in camp at Heart Mountain, Wyoming, his career was derailed, and he never had another exhibition after the war. Later, Date resettled in New York City, where he still resides.This book, which pays tribute to the artist's courage, sense of fun, and pursuit of beauty, will at last give this accomplished and daring artist his due. It accompanies a special exhibition of Hideo Date's works at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles from October 26, 2001 to April 21, 2002.
