Creativity is not a reservoir of clear water that we dip into whenever the fancy takes us and come out with a perfect draft of hydration every time. It is not a spring that miraculously erupts when we least expect with no effort on our part. It seems like that to those of use who watch artists create, what we do not see is the work and practice that goes into that art.
For every piece I happily share, there is a stack of discarded ones. But that's ok. I learned from every splatter, every miss-drawn line. We have to just keep going. Often being given a starting point will help grease those creativity cogs.
For the month of April, every Wednesday I will post a quote, along with some parameters that you can use as an art journal entry. Then you can share your results using #majchallenge on Twitter or Instagram.
