Sustaining Life

Featured image: Hummer III

To sustain life requires both body and mind. Both are also needed to create. The body creates what the mind thinks. To choose not to think is choosing not to create and an artist then merely imitates and repeats.

For example, yesterday a section of a large work just wasn’t working for me. So, I choose not to think about it and to fix it the same old way I have always fixed problems with a work. Since I didn’t like that, I did something completely contrary to everything and completely different. I erased that part of the work. What I uncovered was beautiful, and I loved finding another method that allowed for something fresh and new to happen.
