Art has never involved itself with answering questions, it simply just asks more questions. The practice of making art, teaches you when the opportunity of an idea is working. I still don’t know what transitional or magical thing happens that makes “it” work, but realize through constant practice, that some ideas happen to fall into great pieces of art. I have also found that constantly working, raises the chances of this happening again.
Creativity is not like a light switch, that can be turned on and off at will. Working daily smooths over the rough edges of creativity.
Enjoy the work!
