"To draw, you must close your eyes and sing” ~Pablo Picasso
Creativity is derivative of a crossover from idea to concept, from life to form, from emotion to expression. It is epiphany. (Your moment of Zen)
Collect things as you go. Small things, things you pick up, put down and pick up again. Or simply can't stop touching, looking at, smelling, listening to. Staring at.
Things aren't just objects. They're stories, friends, adventures, road trips that start at 3 in the morning and end... never.
“The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.” ~Walt Whitman
