Painter Rebecca Alzofon thinks “sitting still and letting ideas pass through you” is a necessary part of the creative process.
“Creative work doesn’t start without stillness.”
But it may take some fortitude discipline to stop ‘doing’ all the time.
“A lot of people panic at first,” she says, “if they’re not used to this, they find themselves just sitting and not doing anything, and they think they’re wasting their time, and make themselves get up and do something while they’re waiting for inspiration.
“But you have to hold still, and be peaceful.”
