the Creative Process

My process is all about "Going with the Flow" litterally. When the wax melts and I'm heating it, it moves. I'll watch the light dance on the surface and if I like what it's doing I will let it sit for awhile and work on another area. I may walk away and come back in a matter of minutes or hours. Depending on what I want to explore, I may start another canvas and work it out first or do it completely on the current piece. Hours pass and day turns to night. I don't eat or do much else, until my body says "ENOUGH!" Then it's brake time :) It's hard to walk away when I'm creating, but life intrudes and obligations take hold, the family must be fed (as well as myself) !
