Organizers will tell you that being organized doesn't stifle creativity - rather, it can help someone to be more creative.
So I was struck by Leah Garchick's column in today's San Francisco Chronicle, where she writes about Enrico Donati, age 98, and the exhibit entitled The Surreal World of Enrico Donati at the de Young mueum.
Here's an excerpt from the column:
The one-room exhibition . . . is a re-creation of Donati's New York studio. . . . It's a perfectly neat and organized space, and when I asked Donati whether in real life, his studio has blobs of paint on the floor, he exclaimed,"No way! It's like an operating room . . . I turn around," he said, moving to his left and reaching to mimic the gesture he was describing, "and when I want blue, I have it. I know where it it."
