Painting these abstracts is a valuable lesson in going with the flow.  I start with an idea of what I want, but somewhere along the way the inks take over. It's swim with the current or sink like a stone from that point on.

“Planning is helpful. If you don’t know what you want, you’ll seldom get it. But, no matter how well you plan, you will fare better if you expect the unexpected. The unexpected, by nature, comes unseen, unthought, unenvisioned. All you can do is plan to go unplanned, prepare to be unprepared, make going with the flow part of your agenda, for the most successful among us envision, plan, and prepare, but cast all aside as needed, while those who are unable to go with the flow often suffer, if they survive.” ~ David W. Jones

Do you often find it hard or easy to "go with the flow"?
Thank you very much for your comments.
