“Artists, when they are truly that, access what I call an inner creative fluidity,” writes Deborah Winiarski. “It is their highly creative and intuitive thoughts and emotions, together with their skill, expertise, and experience that make Art possible. The creative life is never static. It is a forever evolving, fluid, and vibrant way of being.” Winiarski’s post “Fluidity” appears on the quarterly online publication ProWax Journal.
