|Tectonic Shift, 10" x 10", acrylic on canvas|
In the accompanying painting I combined multiple techniques developed over the last fifteen years into one canvas. I'm not saying it's a masterpiece–it's only ten inches square–but it does encapsulate a vein of expression that can be expanded on for many painting sessions to come.
In the study of creativity there is a concept known as divergent/convergent thinking where one's mind is filled with as many possibilities as possible only to reach a saturation point. The brain then begins a paring down procedure where harmonious elements are fused together. This is often a subconscious process. Such events often mark a major shift in the creative journey.
Hoping your journey is progressing well.
