Surprising Myself

I’ve learned that the most elemental part of creativity is surprising myself.  Creativity means staying fascinated by what comes from my brush, and motivated by the curiosity I have in what may happen next.  Some driving forces for my art are books and movies that inspire me.  Even the occasional dinner recipe or interesting day trip will inspire a new piece.  Experience drives art, and want to collect experiences like some people collect stamps.  I arrange my notes and photos and mementos around me, the the combination of them pushes my work places that I’ve never been before.
