\"Don\'t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It\'s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can\'t try to do things. You simply must do things.\" -Ray Bradbury Thank you for coming to explore the area in which the creative and logical parts of my brain meet. I try to not limit myself to any particular school of thought regarding the arts. As far as I am concerned, the only relevant school of thought teaches that schools of thought don’t exist. The idea of not being limited to any particular medium, allows for a level sensory perception that paint alone seldom reaches. The use of glass, mirrored glass in particular, allows for light to be included in the list of mediums I use. The incorporation of not just words, but positive quotes and ideas from people of both Modern and historic times, allows the message of my art to be received not only by the senses that detect information, but also the sense that detect the feeling of being motivated, inspired, enlightened, and the like. The combination of the aforementioned turns my art into a multi-sensory experience. If you ask me, I wouldn\'t consider myself a painter, that label in itself is a limitation… I simply create. Enlightenment By Any Means… INSTAGRAM: @RONALDDRAPER_ART ...more
