"...eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak." - hans hofmann
How crowded my life becomes. It happens so quickly. I forget every time how important it is to get away. I was reminded, again, when we headed out of town for the weekend, about the creative freedom I feel within constraints. When I just gather a few art supplies, knowing I can't take it all and not being able to gauge the inspiration I will have upon arrival, it still amazes me that I find inspiration with exactly what I have.
There is so much power in simplifying, in paring down, in eliminating the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.
