Creativity

What inspires or prompts us to creativity? To me, it has always been a random connection with some unknown force..

How do you connect with something unknown?

By becoming blank, stop thinking process and surrender to those out of blue, sometimes apparently weird ideas...

Thats a bit contradicting. But as I do not have those state of minds I will leave this discussion to others who do understand

Ahhh... " The Muse...."

For us creative types I don't think it is about connecting - I think it is about disconnecting from everything else that distracts & drains energy.

I always "dread" starting - because then I don't want to stop on a piece and have been known to "go to far" - and with digital - if you haven't saved it before you go that distance - it's all for naught. I've never been able to go back to the "original" start and do it just like I had done it.

I don't think I have to be creative - I just am - and I like being creative. But, I doubt I would shrivel up and die if I didn't.

I do stuff. Other people tell me it's creative. I don't worry about it much.

I was just born creative, I don't know any other way. Nor would I have it any other way if I could :)

The assuaging of the desire of the temporal. Sex, food, shelter, sleep etc.

Virtually nothing is random to an artist. What people call "random" in an admiring way is usually better described as "eclectic", a very not-random selection process to create the best selection of associations within a collection. Creativity is part of who we are as human beings. It's built in to who we are. We associate, we connect, and we correlate.

I've always been creative, but it has a lot to do with " creative problem solving " and gets expressed in many ways. For me it is not just through my art, painting or photography. I've used this " right hemisphere " of my mind in cooking and became a nutritional cook. After training and working in hospital janitorial, I turned it into my own sub-contract business with nine RV dealerships. I've used it in property management and when rent increases were required by the corporation, I found an acceptable way for each tenant to raise their rent to whatever comfortable amount that would keep them as a tenant. The building made money as the result of long term tenants.

Whatever we do ... there are challenges, for which there are ... solutions. We can be inspired by and aspire to most anything.

I'm on board with Joe. I just fiddle about with stuff to get something that suits my purpose. People can stick whatever labels they like on that - but I wouldn't want them to attribute anything of mine to mystical unknown forces (that's making Adobe Corp too god-like!)

An image pops into my head and I have to make it somehow. It grows from there.

Art is a process in which the artist willingly participates to seek or maintain salvation!!!
