You are an ecosystem of ideas and they develop and evolve inside of you.
One of the things that can happen is you start accumulating unanswered questions or inconsistencies. You pursue a path as far as you can until you can’t get any further. I think what happens at that time is you pursue something new.

Enjoying these discussions. Its very grounding to hear about the creative process.
Listening to these chats has given me a deeper perspective into my own challenges as an abstract artist.
Thank you both
Thank you Angela! We’re delighted that our chats are resonating so deeply with you!
After so many years in the studio I have all these visual experiences. It’s so soothing to hear your explanation of what is going on and it’s so helpful now that I can understand and make some sense of what I’m doing and why. Looking forward to more talks. Thank you so much, You’re adding meaning and quality to my life as an artist.
It’s so lovely to hear from you! Your kind words give me a lift. I’m delighted you’re enjoying these talks and that they are meaningful to you!
I love the term elegantly scruffy! I think that fits the decor of my home. I’m enjoying your conversations and find them to be a welcome break between my life and the covid news these days. At least for today, this was the sweet spot.
Oh I love that term too Susan! Yes- a sweet spot! Thank you Susan. I appreciate your kind words. We need all the good things we can muster these days!
I so enjoy listening to your conversation. My grown son and I watched this together. He has a degree in statistics, and math always came easy, thank goodness, as mom could not help! It’s great how ideas and subjects that are so compelling pass between you. I want to take notes or listen a second time. I said, ‘oh, to take a class from either of them or have a meal with them’-fascinating! I love how your various areas of expertise dovetale in such interesting fashion. Thank you both!
Best wishes, Denise
I love that image of you and your grown son watching and discussing this talk together! Ha! I know what you mean about math and statistics! Bruce is the one who helps everyone around here with those subjects! Yes! Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a meal and a discussion together? If you’re ever around Santa Cruz, California please let me know!
I really enjoy this chats. I enjoy the history you bring in … the talk about music and bring it into the art. I love the story of how Rembrandt ran outside of the lines of the normal for his time and how he was re found. I love when Bruce said, this happens within each of us as individuals too and that each of evolve in our own artistic path. “Links of inconsistencies”, Occam’s razor!!! Simplest solution…. it takes a lot to simplify things!!! All things we can use in our art journey!!!
I always love hearing from you! Thank you! Yes! I loved that too when Bruce said this happens inside us individually as well, on our artist’s path. Yes to simplicity too! Thanks for reflecting back what spoke to you!
