“Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.”
One thing most of us have in common is……..we don’t like to destroy things.
But to make progress in anything we do have to destroy (re-create) the existing to create the new.
Nature does this too with storms, winds, fire, floods etc.
Somehow…………we need to see it for what it is……creating the new.
As an art teacher I have seen that when a student (or myself)
is able to “destroy” a work in progress something better ALWAYS emerges.
Often there are moments of doubt but eventually a much better artwork is created.
