The Wheel of Creativity: 6 Strategies to Bring it Back in Motion

Imagine a big wheel like those found at amusement parks. Makes the wheel rotate and what is at the top will move down. If there is enough energy, the wheel shall continue its course and what was at the bottom, will come back up to the top. Creativity follows a similar path. There are ups and downs. If the move is strong enough during the descent, the ascent is going to be easy, but if the energy is low, the course will stop at the bottom and will remain there until a strong thrust put the wheel back in motion. read more

Addition and Subtraction in Painting

The creation of a painting by addition and subtraction of paint is a technique that I like very much and the mixture of oil paint, alkyd gel medium and cold wax is particularly well suited to this approach. Even if a thin layer of this mixture dries quickly compared to the oil paint only, I still have about 24 hours before it is dry to the touch. Beyond this period, it is always possible to add a few drops of a mild solvent to manipulate the paint layer. read more

Where Intuitive and Experimental Work Push Us

In intuitive and experimental painting, you never know in which way the creative impulse is going to push us or come out from it. This is what makes all the interest of this type of approach.
