As an on-the-road artist I can go anywhere my paints and camera want to take me. I have a solid general idea of destination and purpose but the specifics flow with ever-changing days. Surprises from storms to an impromptu left turn, feed fresh energy to my art and keep me from overthinking things. Art needs direction but flourishes within its own freedom, and is thus invariably more exciting. I call it (with a nod to Bruce Lee), "the art of creating without creating."
