‘Wildness is part of the process. So is care. Each exists imperfectly without the other.’ Eric Maisel
Some times, we get so caught up in trying to create the perfect thing, that we create nothing. At times we need to be less inhibited. In my holiday reading one author suggested that you ‘art’ in the nude to release you inhibitions………..I am not sure that I am TOTALLY comfortable with that….but using new or different materials, changing the light in your play space, arting at a different time of the day, or making some other deliberate change to how you normally create can produce some interesting results. When you are creating today, put on some music……..if you normally listen to soft relaxing music, put on something a little more up tempo, if it is the other way around for you………..consider some rock or pop music for a change of style…….

Wellll………..did you do it? Did you make a change? What were the results, did the ‘chaos/wildness’ cause you to create something different to your usual style? Did it change the colours you were drawn to? How did it impact you? Do you like what you created?
