Maura showed me this quote and I just had to write it down:

Creation is never about changing yourself; it is about meeting yourself, probing deep into your core. Creation wants only to fulfill your deepest desire: to know and accept yourself as you are. There are no conditions, no invitations to show at the door. you are at the door and your brush is the key. Nothing is a mistake, everything is a n extension of your being. You go into what is there, you discover the courage to face what exists. You step into the middle of yourself and move from there.

“If you wait for inspiration, you may wait a long time,” I tell my students. “The more you wait, the more you think and get entangled in the tight net of success and failure. You do not need an idea to paint, you need only a brush. If you do not know what to do, just paint!”
