Try this:

Make a checklist of possibilities in any single art medium. Number each.

Throw one die to see how many you might combine. Throw both dice next to
see which ones to combine. Make a work which combines them.

Won't that be innovative?

Curious about what I do? You can view some paintings at the Left Hand Books
site, <http://www.lefthandbooks.com/lhb> (these are for sale) and other
things at the Ubuweb one, Ubuweb- <http://www.ubuweb.com/vp/index3.html>
(these aren't) among others. My next book that is coming out will be:
MODERNISM SINCE POSTMODERNISM (San Diego: San Diego State University Press,
June 1997). You can get it through Amazon Books, <http://www.amazon.com>.
