I recently read an article called “20 Things Only Highly Creative People Would Understand” and it really felt like the author did understand.
Right now I am thinking about # 12 on that list, resistance.
"When nothing is sure, everything is possible"
British novelist, Margaret Drabble
I am never sure about what I am doing when I start new work. This is not so much a creative block as it is an overwhelm of ideas.
I find inspiration everywhere but when I sit down to get it out on canvas, it goes all sideways.
I stubbornly and routinely attempt to start with a theme in mind, only to be sidelined in a whole different direction. It has taken some time but I finally accept the fact that I am what is known as a 'process painter' - meaning I just start working at it until something appeals to me.
I started this painting a long while back and then just did not know where to go with it.
One day I just took a
risk chance, and tried something new.
Because – it’s – just – paint.
