Lately, I have been "playing around" with the new medium gouache and some new techniques (dripping, color mixing, and less realism). SO, I found this paragraph in Robert Genn's Twice-Weekly Letter interesting.
Practically all the "great ones" have mentioned the value of play. "Play is the exultation of the possible," said Martin Buber. "Play is the essential feature in productive thought," said Albert Einstein. The American conceptual artist and minimalist Sol LeWitt declared, "Your work isn't a high stakes, nail-biting professional challenge. It's a form of play. Lighten up and have fun with it."
SO, today, I'm off to my studio to once again PLAY!
