Here’s what I learned (or re-learned) from today’s Creative Sandbox session: I don’t like working this way!
Why? It’s too much execution without discovery!
I get BORED!
I want to be in discovery phase, following curiosity, as much as humanly possible. THAT is why I love improvisation.
THAT is why I CHOOSE to improvise in so much of my creative life, as much as possible: my visual art, my music, my teaching, my podcasts… It’s why I was drawn to jazz as an art form, and to improv–why I perform improv (and yes, it’s scary, but it gets less scary the more you do it!) Because that not-knowing-what’s going-to-happen-next? THAT is where the fun is!
That is where the CREATIVITY is!
That is where I SURPRISE myself, and if I’m not surprising myself periodically, then dangit, what is the POINT? I WANT to be surprising myself!
I have not yet figured out how to work with these watercolor markers and Pigma Microns together in a way that doesn’t involve tedium… I will keep working at it and let you know if I figure it out.
