As I stare down to a blank page in my sketchbook, I grapple with this question. I always find it challenging to dive in to piece and begin to create. Yet, the first step, the dive into creativity, is of the utmost importance. For instance, when one decides to hike a large mountain, the intent or idea of accomplishing this feat is meaningless without follow through. The first steps are often hard, then quickly they will fall in to the rhythm of the climb. Once I finally convince myself to begin the piece, I quickly fall into the art and the rhythm of creation.
Why is the initially starting a piece so challenging?
