Note-taking, researching generated the following blog. A thoughtful morning.
“We write about art in order to clarify and to account for responses to works that interest us or excite or frustrate us. By “putting words on paper we have to take a second and third look at what is in front of us and of what is within us. Picaso said, “To know what you want to draw, you have to begin drawing.” Similarly, writing is a way of finding out what you want to write, a way of learning.”
My thoughts: Writing about what you create puts “it” into words that define “its” possibilities. “It” being what we create through the processes we move through; through art or the written word.
When we write about our own art____Once written down there is less chance to lose those thoughts, that unique information. Our conclusions, what we brought into the creative process can be shared, passed on, and thought about in infinite ways.
Someone else can take the thoughts further to a higher level of their own creations. For thoughts generate other thoughts, and this is endless cycle of processing. It is essential to creativity.
The world is not a boring place if you always look at it with wonderment and find its possibilities. Artists and writers are facilitators and finders of possibilities. Their minds are endless, even though they may doubt it. It is all within you, you just need to look.
Artists and writers help other people think, to respond, we say what others feel they can not, or say what they have not seen how to express “it”____they only need to start talking, so we begin things that will start others off that they might join in. What we create,____It is like the grayscale artist use, it has a wider spectrum though and is varied. Artists and writers communicate and convey. In all that is done, there is great power in the smallest things created, through words or said by faceted forms, dimensional forms, whatever it is.
