Don't Put The Creative Cart Before The Horse

words of inspiration on suspended paper
What is your creative strategy or process? Do you ever find that you are getting ahead of yourself or "putting the cart before the horse"? When I read these few words in the image above I realized that they would come in handy to me because I sometimes rush into execution which can end up limiting my whole creative process. I hope you get something from this too - take some time to have a ponder before getting started: what have you learned that was of value to you in your life and could this be a starting place for your artwork?
