Go with It - Perspectives No. 360
Go With It
Making art is an unpredictable affair. We start with an idea and follow it until something happens which delights, intrigues, excites or simply interests us. Our ideas may not be of interest to anyone else, for all we know, but pursue them we must. Sooner or later, there will come that moment of discovering something new that makes us feel as if all the effort has been worth it. We think of this as inspiration, and as the word connotes, it seems to come from the realm of the spiritual rather than the temporal. This is the mysterious creative process of the brain.
