They feed us all the time, if we would only listen. Initially, they are perceptible in only the broadest outlines. We need to bring them out into the world. 47 C r e a t iv e A u t h e n t ici t y The clarification, the forming, manifests these intuitions as art. We articulate the idea. And that articulation by artists and writers, architects and musicians, and so on, is all that remains of each past culture we now admire. Each person communicated that inner impulse in their own way, filtered through the time and culture in which they lived.

I was once asked by an art history professor to talk with his class about several paintings in a collection in Chicago. I spoke of one painting in particular. It showed a woman turned away from the viewer, sitting on a table edge that had a huge bouquet of chrysanthemums on it. Interestingly, the painting would have worked better as a composition if the head had been removed from the woman. The shapes of the flowers filled the space of the canvas far better that way. I asked the students to hold their hand in front of the picture so the head was eliminated, and they agreed that it was clearly a stronger design that way.

I was looking at a book recently called Artist at Work. It featured the studios of several well-known American artists. In almost every case the space reminded me of a chapel or cathedral. The spaces were huge, soaring, and this was no accident. The physical, emotional and even spiritual elevation the space created contributed to the work. This is the home turf of your creative space; it remains undisturbed by the rest of the day’s energies. It stays open for your arrival. When you walk in you’re filled with a heightened readiness to begin.
