I do wish my supplies had more room to spread out, and I didn't have to move my pie tray of broken pastels to use the toaster...some how that craziness and chaos comes thru in my art though. What would it look like if I had little pots with pen colors separated lined up along a wall of pegboard? Notes and drawings easily accessed pinned to a board above my new white work station?
No, I don't think the chaos would come thru....I'd rather search a box of paper clippings knowing I had a pink turtle in there somewhere, and be ecstatic when I found it. Sure it takes me longer, but part of the fun is the search right...I knew it was there somewhere. When you have to search for things, you come across "other things"....and you know what "other things" do, they set your mind a swirling! Other things have a tendency to want it their way, they want to grab you, change your direction, and take you for a ride into the unknown of left field. I always jump on that train with the "other things", is that what creativity is.
Is that where creativity comes from.......an openness, a willingness, to go for a ride..... Yes, I'm thinking so.
