Creation and play are the same word to me. Study becomes play when art is involved.
I love the saying "Chaos-where brilliant dreams are born.
Before the beginning of great brilliance, there must be chaos.
Before a brilliant person beging something great they must look foolish to the crowd."
I am not brilliant but i am good at chaos and foolishness...so maybe there is hope :)
Yesterday I was playing with an old drawing and worked up a small watercolor of a leaf..
then I spent most of this morning playing with the photo of it in on my PC
cropping... turning and cropping again...
My playing for the day.
