Do Ideas float for Artists to gather up??

Posted by:

Its So Wonderful… to take what one would think of as time away from artistic efforts, to discover that visions and ideas virtually drop in for a visit.
Illustrating the Image; Im doing the everyday necessities, clearing the table preping for a new project, then out of the blue, like a bolt of lightening… a vision, a solution, a full blown idea comes crashing into my thoughts!
Wow! Its like someone just delivered it into the consciousness mailbox.
Ive tried to figure out over the years, what I am doing, or not doing perhaps that allows that kind of Incoming?
I believe its the reprieve from effort that opens the mind to be able to recieve. Such as being in The Zone, so often refered to., actually found while ‘present’ during the creative process. None the less, that lovely open receptivity to the inner call of the next brush stroke.
Try freeing yourself from the little preconcieved ideas to net-in the delightful flree floating ones.
