Once the artist delves into the world of the object, the sense of separateness from the painting disappears, as if not only your effort creates the painting, but also the painting itself is the creator. This intermingling of the artist and the art is as if each one is effectively the creator and the creation. The experience can be equated to that of the meditative state or the state of “flow” when reality as we know it, no longer exists. From this develops an innate understanding or wisdom that directs one through the process of creativity.
