By FAR the most enlightening part is where Peter talked about his students trying to force their design onto the plants instead of taking the plants into consideration first. I am terrible about doing that exact thing, but had never considered that my colossal failure in gardening is more a result of my own self-centeredness than the plants stubbornness. I also think this can apply to every aspect of my art. I tend to try to force my drawings, painting, whatever I'm doing, to fit into an idea I have in my head then I get discouraged when the final product doesn't look like I want it to. Instead, I think I should embrace the organic way media interacts and let it be its own creation. And you can tell I've had my nose close to stinky markers for much too long now.
