The Elusive Point X: Where Creativity and Craft Meet

String Lake

Somewhere along the continuum of creativity and craftsmanship there is a point where the two intersect harmoniously and unpretentiously in a natural rhythm that is difficult to achieve. Point X can’t be forced and yet, can only be reached through a bravado of execution that requires courage to fail as well as to succeed. The pitfalls are real, but the rewards are great for those willing to take risks.

In the February 2014 edition of 15 Bytes John Hughes discusses the search for the elusive point X of painting, where creativity and craft coalesce.

An award-winning artist and teacher who has been painting the landscape both in and out of the studio since 1983, John Hughes maintains a studio in Taylorsville and teaches students in private workshops and in a course at Salt Lake Community College.
