For the past 10 years, I have used Genesis Chapter 1 verse 3 or "Gen. 1:3" as my email signature. Some people have replied to my emails and asked me "what does that mean?" Then it strikes them and another email immediately follows asking me to "forget the last email".
For me this passage represents the first light cue of the "Play of our Universe". The biblical account of creation is the foundation for how we as artists work our process and build our craft. Regardless of your spiritual or religious beliefs, the concept of "and God said let there be light" is the first move in taking the formless and shaping it.
First there is a creative spark that drives you to completion. Then there is the process, the layers, the research, "the work"... The process continues until "the work" is done and then you rest and reflect on your creation until the next spark.
When the artist in any medium chooses to create, the process for the refinement of the art encompasses the same manner that God used to create our world. Are you a "Creative"? What is your process? This blog space will serve as our formless void where arts lovers can visit and share their thoughts in an open creative forum.
Here's to the Creator in all of us!
