‘The 100’ #88 – YAY, creative me…



placing this here and that there,

adding colour

or not,

mezcal, moodling,

miles davis,

looking through squinted eyes,

listening to the surface,

gluing, scraping,

pacing, pondering,

placing that there and this here,

layering, leaving,

returning, ruminating,

touching up, tuning down,

moodling more mezcal,

free falling,

asking what if,

adding, eliminating,

destroying, building,


looking again,

click, click,

done, done

and done.

‘The 100′ series was initiated by my 100th Post in April 2012. As text and images are the essence of my blog my intention is to present 100 pieces of text based art from historical and contemporary artists and from my own hand. To view the series to date click on ‘The 100’ in my Category Menu.

  1. Oh, yes! …that beautiful procedure and then: “done, done and done” Sometimes we’re like little kids with eyes wide open in amazement while playing with fire! And look at the outcome… brilliant, John!


    1. I really, really am drawn to what you said about the creative process: “like little kids with eyes wide open in amazement while playing with fire!” – that’s going up on my studio wall…lovely comment Marina, Thank you…


    1. I have a button that says, ‘Fear No Art’ and I apply this also to the act of Art…the creative process doesn’t work for me unless I feel completely free to make, and keep on making changes until the work says, “Done”. Thank you Nicole for taking the time…
