Is Creativity Ordered?

I think many of us believe that the truly creative person doesn’t have to plan, to order thoughts, to create in a constructive way. But I believe creativity is ordered just like Dusty showed us yesterday with his drawing of shapes. I don’t believe creativity happens by chance. I believe creativity occurs after a lot of hard work- observing, thinking, planning, practising, trying. Creativity grows.

Here in Australia probably our most creative (and controversial) painting is Blue Poles by Jackson Pollock. It is on permanent exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra and next time you are there please take time to visit. It is a magnificent piece of creativity. Take a little time to study the image and to think about my question. Is there order in this creative piece?
