I always have a stack of art books near by, some I'm re-reading bits and parts for the 10th time. "Trust the Process - an artists guide to letting go" by Shaun Mcniff was recommended to me by fellow artist Rebecca Crowell. Here is a statement from that book.
"The way of creation is a practice that lives each instant as fully as possible, lets go, and moves on to the next engagement. When examining the lives of creative people there is always sustained desire and a vision into the future." "The sense that everyday is a new opportunity . . . the sun rises anew each day . . . and that we never step into the same brook more than once."
Painting creates painting, just showing up in the studio makes things happen, not always good, but always an experiment! Enjoy your day!
