Why do we have the uncomfortable urge to create?
Painting is stronger than me, it makes me do it's bidding.I'm not very good at just being... I have to make. It's not too Zen (whatever that is), I know. But it is what it is and I am what I am. Driven. To. Make.
~ Pablo Picasso
As a kid I made contraptions (probably would now be called found object art or mixed media art) – three-dimensional constructions that sometimes spanned rooms (yes, plural – rooms) in our house. I built things outdoors (mostly in the trees). I mixed concoctions out of everything in the kitchen.
As an adult I still make things. And it's only been in the darkness of depression that I didn't make things.
So I'll keep making things. It makes me happy.
