The Endless Immensity

"The Birth of Creativity" by Eleatta © 18 x 24 acrylic

This painting is a response to my thoughts about the subject of creativity after coming across a compelling quote from Antoine De Saint Exupery. I am often asked about my creative process. Although I could fill volumes on the topic , I feel Exupery said it best. In commenting on the development of the creative process he said it is like "a longing for the endless immensity of the sea.”
Such a lovely phrase, isn't it?

Creative thought is born from a longing. This can be a longing to express  feelings, to give shape to thoughts, or to release concepts.

In this longing, there is a necessary germinating process which allows thoughts and ideas 
to swim freely. This phase, being completed, gives rise to art's truest expression.

What are your thoughts on creativity? How do you define the creative process?

The above painting, "The Birth of Creativity"(18 x 24) is available for purchase : $ 175 plus tax/shipping.
