Creating Beauty

I love this quote by Frederick Mayer: “We become creative when we realise the infinite possibilities within us, and when we understand that our function is not merely to exist but to contribute to life, to improve it, and to make it more meaningful to others.”

I was able to spend some time chatting with my good friend Lynda Howitt in her studio not far from New York recently. The cross fertilisation of ideas, making connections from different sensory inputs, exploring different views and metaphors for a subject with her was refreshing.

Lynda’s beautiful abstract art work lets our imaginations soar with their emotional intensity, feeling to me what the chemistry of attraction might look like. I’m inspired to create some more beautiful abstract seascapes. I think a week at a little shack on a remote coastline somewhere would be perfect! Any suggestions for where?

    Not so much as a shack on the coast of Rhode Island, but some scenic places to photo.Good surf. Also the coast of Main ( longest coastline in the USA). Upper Main with the blue water and white foam is beautiful. High cliffs, windy and cold at times. Too cold to swim here for us old folks.
