I can see how all any “good girl” training is completely counter productive to creating art. No. That’s history. Now it’s, what’s up? What’s going on inside that needs to come out? Unformed, not yet understood, no rationale, no idea where this is going. Not totally clear.
Nor does it have to be totally clear ever.

That’s what I want. Loose ends. Even in the final product.
