I am often referring to play on the art room, this is not because I do not value hard work and study in drawing and painting, or skill, but because I worry about imagination and creativity in this digital multi -media age of zero tolerance to boredom. Boredom to me is an amazing thing in this fast world and it is a state to be nurtured, as when one is truly bored the mind dreams up great plans and inventions, ideas that sparkle and generate more ideas, dreams and plans. This is some of my work from a project using ripped up cardboard boxes to draw and paint on. Cheap/free materials are also really important. Too often people worry about having the correct tool box. There is no tool box in art apart from your imagination and thoughts. These are the materials to sharpen and nurture.
