What Artists Want vs What Artists Need
What do artists want?
What artists need?
What makes the difference between artists who create vs those who think about creating but don’t actually do anything about it. (most people).
I once gave a TEDx talk about the creative process in 8 stages.
I had put a blank canvas in a room and dissected the mental states I went through as I created the painting.
The first stage was *Vision* where I would suddenly have an idea or a direction.
The next stage was *HOPE* where I would swell with the possibility of it actually existing.
The third stage was *DIVING IN* and that was the hardest one to do.
I came to the conclusion that most people go through stages 1 and 2 all the time but it’s the third stage that really makes the difference.
I had four exhibitions this year and my studio was a painting factory,
I know the answer to removing that obstacle of diving in.
