"In order to be an artist you have to react intensely."

~Alice Neel

The reason to create artistically is to experience the process.

Do not rush.

Savor the process.

Be fully engaged.

Sidestep time.

Disappear into process for awhile.

Watch what happens when one color blends into another.

Get your hands dirty.

Feel the process physically and emotionally.

Losing track of time makes the process worthwhile.

When you are fully engaged in the process, time loses meaning.

And nothing else matters.
