As happens so often the kind and thoughtful people who have left comments on my blog post have presented ideas and perspectives to me that I hadn't come to on my own. Thanks to them I have a new perspective. Since I'm not so happy painting lately, perhaps I need to just look. Concentrate on learning, replenishing, not producing.
I watched a good dvd a couple of nights ago, a documentary on the composer Philip Glass called Glass--the post title is a phrase from the film. Glass himself is charming and I found myself applying a lot of what he said about creativity and composing to painting.
