OK had to add this

The experienced creator is forever intrigued with the unplanned results that emerge from faithful practice. But this is one of the aspects of creative expression that beginners find most difficult to accept. I was just visiting an art class where the teacher was trying to help her student appreciate that what they "want" from a painting is often quite different from what they "get" So much of art education involves an appreciation for what arrives from outside the scope of our preconceptions.
