I attended a AMA meeting this past week and got super motivated by author, Allen Gannett. I received a copy of his new book, The Creative Curve and just started reading. There are many ideas that I will dig into as I read it this weekend but right off the bat, I really connected with is the concept of training the brain to be creative through intensive focused study. He uses the example of Jonathan Hardesty’s path to becoming a master painter. I am intrigued by his rapid and dramatic progress as a painter and want to see what I can learn from him.
