After being away from the easel for more than a week, I know I need to get back or some how I will loose my "muse." Serendipitously at this time I was told about TED talks and found this great video that spoke to me. Have you every created a painting that when finished you wondered if your hand was governed by someone other than yourself? Maybe this could explain what is really happening when we create. Elizabeth Gilbert of the book, Eat, Pray, Love, gives one possibility of this idea of genius and creativity. Weigh in on your thoughts.
