Only the wild, I think.
Where does art come from?
I got into a conversation with a young man on the trail. A tall kid with an incisive mind. When we spoke of natural beauty, and I called it creative, he said, "It's not creative; it's creation. It's what our whole sense of beauty is based off of."
The ancient Taoists, in the creation of their art, sought to model--through close observation and alignment with the natural way of things--the harmony of the natural world. They strove, through a sort of meditative state, to channel the Tao through themselves unimpeded. Thus, the art they made would be less a work of self-expression, and more a work that is expressive of The Way (the literal translation of "The Tao"), the natural harmony of the universe.
It's a wonderful approach to creativity. A way to be in touch with something bigger than just ourselves. A way to grow closer to the world.
