I find on occasion, myself in a quandary of what to do once I’m finally in the studio with time to paint. I might have to then look around the studio for some ideas, inspiration, anything that sparks an interest. It could be ‘just playing’ with paint in a glass vase.
It could be a full sheet of Indian Village paper Mark Rothko style.
It maybe trying to see things from a different perspective
It could be monochromatic brush drawing.
And then there’s always my several hundred assorted brushes to create still life paintings from.
Wherever my creativity takes me that day, for however long or short, I keep the mindset to be kind to myself and to learn from whatever I have done that day.
A favourite quote I keep in the studio is from Albert Einstein,
“Imagination is more important than knowledge, for while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, IMAGINATION points to all we might yet discover and Create.”
