Great ideas to support what art can do. My thought that fine art and digital art both are source of inspiration for the artists, photographers, graphic designers and everyone related with the designing industry.

Creativity works in mysterious and often paradoxical ways. Creative thinking is a stable, defining characteristic in some personalities, but it may also change based on situation and context. Inspiration and ideas often arise seemingly out of nowhere and then fail to show up when we most need them, and creative thinking requires complex cognition yet is completely distinct from the thinking process.
