Peter Cottontail

6" x 6" Acrylic/Collage on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

Played again in the studio today!  Fun collage with another darling napkin!  While things were drying, I sat down with one of my Somerset Studio magazines (Sep/Oct 2011 to be exact) - and found this cool article by Quinn McDonald entitled "Experiencing Creality".

It seems that T.J. Goerlitz, an American artist living in Germany came up with the term "Creality".  In short, it means that Creality is the distance between a concept and an outcome.  It usually happens when our creative idea falls short once we start trying to make it to reality.  She explains, "Either my ideas are too idealistic or my skills are too remedial to achieve my desired result.  Both reasons put the blame on my own shoulders.  Of course, if the outcome is better than anticipated, it becomes a happy accident, and some mysterious fate gets the credit."

Sound familiar?  I don't know about you, but I'm finding that I live in a constant state of Creality!! I'm just excited to know that there is word for it!
