The Creative Process

I work from following ideas and inspirations as they appear to me during my everyday thought process. Outside influences, apart from the works of the great masters such as Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Andrew Wyeth, are kept to a minimum. Also current art trends are dismissed and the desire to create works that will sell does not drive my creative process.
I have always loved the materials used in the artistic process. A good brush, or other tool, and the materials to work with, or on, always excites me. From rich colors, all the way down to a simple pencil, all have their merit.
Just to give an example of my working process, I am now working on a paper sculpture. It started life out as a detailed pencil drawing over 10 years ago, then became a watercolor, then prints were made for sale. After viewing some of the remaining prints, I began to manipulate them into new art pieces using cutting and folding techniques, and overpainting some of the imagery.
