These are attributes of some of the most interesting people I know. They are also attributes I nurture in myself. I love to play with my art supplies and tools, and find out what might happen. I mix paint colors. Sometimes I am shocked by what turns up on my little mixing plate. Some times it’s so good I have to quickly jot down the formula in a note book. Now, when I see a great color in someone else’s work, I may even be able to guess how they got that color. I might pick up something from my work table, like waxed paper covered with paint and plunk it on top of something else. I might like it. This summer I did a lot of nature printing. I used tissue paper between the brayer and the material I was printing. I had already used that tissue paper to pick up excess paint. I ended up with a print I really liked. Accident. Randomness. Paying attention to what happens. Following the vein of curiosity. The more curious you are, the more curious you become. I would enjoy hearing about where curious experimentation may have taken you and your art.
