The canvas leads.
I have no idea when I set out what I am going to do.
It's none of my business.
The colors that have come have been a complete gift, amazing to me what has come out of my hands, onto paper or canvas - it really does surprise me.
Will learning the craft cost me the art, will my freedom leave?
I don't know.
But I want to learn it, feel compelled to do so.
As a programmer, as a carpenter, rules and variables understood first, then utilized. Then creativity followed, naturally. After craft.
I want the skills.
