I am naturally a very scientific person. I do not see this as an opposite of creativity. My work starts with parameters, from there exploration happens. By setting clear goals at the start of each piece I have a way to determine when it's finished - otherwise I am likely to wander off and start several new ideas right on top of the original one. If a new idea occurs to me while I'm working on a piece, I try to set it aside and make it part of my goals for the next work.
So, much of the creative process happens while I am reflecting in between working on paintings.
