“The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who'll listen to me,
is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of
us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a
bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful
lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the
work itself. Things occur to you. If you're sitting around trying to dream up a
great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if
you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur
to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction.
Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you
need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that's almost
never the case.”

"All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of
no-mind, from inner stillness." -Eckhart Tolle

Strip away the imaginary mental boxes today and shake things up. Carve the time out to be creative. Find quiet. Forget the bills, work, and all the daily constraints. Quiet the mind and enjoy some solitude. Today is not the day to be a critic. Get lost in the process and just produce.

If anyone is in the Garden City area I would  highly recommend stopping by the Ruth S. Harley University Center Gallery at Adelphi University. The gallery's current exibition, In the Radiance  of Shadows, is incredible. The works of Warren C. Lyons are truly inspirational and a must see. I was lost in the mystery and enchantment of his pieces for quite some time. The exhibit is up until Feb 28th. Go check it out!
"Artists come together with the clear knowledge that when all is said and done,
they will return to their studio and practice art alone. Period. That simple
truth may be the deepest bond we share. The message across time from the painted
bison and the carved ivory seal speaks not of the differences between the makers
of that art and ourselves, but of the similarities. Today these similarities lay
hidden beneath urban complexity -- audience, critics, economics, trivia -- in a
self-conscious world. Only in those moments when we are truly working on our own
work do we recover the fundamental connection we share with all makers of art.
The rest may be necessary, but it's not art. Your job is to draw a line from
your art to your life that is straight and clear.”
