The above artwork is by Kazuaki Tanahashi, author of Brush Mind. In his book, Kazuaki writes,
"There is no need to imagine before you paint. Painting brings forth imagination."No special conditions are needed to write, paint, or begin a creative endeavor. Though it feels risky, we can have confidence in the life-giving capacity of risk. One brush stroke leads to another, one word leads to another, one note on a song sheet calls forth the next. All we have to do is begin. Our willingness to risk brings the moment, ourselves and our work to life in a way that did not exist just moments before.
