Weekly Blog on creativity and what it takes to be an artist by David Limrite (artist, teacher, mentor & coach)

“An unconscious merging of intuition, discipline, celebration and accident is what one hopes for.”
Fritz Scholder (Artist)


  • to your creations being about something you didn’t expect them to be
  • to your creations taking you places you did not expect to go
  • to heading in the direction of where you think you want your creations to go
  • to a change in motivation
  • to making necessary adjustments all along the way
  • to taking a left instead of a right
  • to taking some risks (And to being willing to fail)
  • to letting your creations take you where they want you to go (And to being curious)
  • to giving yourself permission to try things (And to having the courage to try)
  • to challenging yourself (And to never playing it safe)
  • to doing anything and everything you can to make your creations work
  • to surprises, happy accidents and discoveries
  • to personal expression
  • to emphasizing the joy of creating, rather than on achieving results
