If it's already painted in your head, why paint it on canvas. To really create is to be a little lost.
Each mark, each shape you place on the pictorial stage creates context and story. One simple, small line says something remarkable based on placement: high, low, or in the middle. It indicates emotion based on thickness, velocity, fluidity, direction and color. You are telling a story whether you are aware of it or not.
Imagination, metaphor, and improvisation are more important than the color of your paint or what brush you use. We crave meaning, we desire "story". Be aware and receptive to what your lines, shapes and colors are suggesting. Ultimately it is all about cultivating curiosity!

Thanks for sharing your creative process. I just watched some of your videos and agree that thinking too long about composition often blocks you and prevents sometimes superior accidental results.
