Jesse Reno's new book I just got. I have his other books and they are a constant source of inspiration. This one is huge and amazing and as you can see below, he includes a glossary of his symbols he uses in his paintings. He doesn't usually purposely put symbols in his paintings...they just appear when he is creating and then he "reads" what the piece of artwork is telling him. In fact, he writes the message on the back of each painting. I resonated so much with this because this is what happens when I do art as well. The piece tells me things...like the universe is communicating with me.
