Creative people view life differently than the other part of the world. I almost gave a percentage, half, but honestly, I don’t know how many creative people there are out of the whole population of the world. I dare not say half because I don’t really believe that number is that high. I think there are sensitive people, but then there are sensitive/creative people and that’s a different ball of wax.
To create art is something like defying language. Art is a language of its own. The artist who creates it owns it, understands like no other about the nature of that work. Seldom do you hear an artist say they don’t know what their own art represents. If the inspiration came rapidly and from an unknown source it may leave us wondering. But deep down, the artist knows.
Many artists choose to work on paper. Some of us painters will go to paper occasionally for something different. Paper is amazing when you think about it. It is such a flimsy object but what a support system. That paper holds our thoughts and ideas. It relays messages to other people what our secret art language is and screams the artist’s silent voice. Be ready to share when you take up a drawing pencil and piece of paper. This is your envoy to others about what you think, about what you dream and imagine. Paper goes way back in history because it needed to be part of us for these very reasons.
Sometimes artists have a tendency to lose confidence even seasoned artists who have been practicing for years. Confidence can wane just at moments you don’t want it to, just as it can behave the opposite and wax to the extreme. Always remember when those doubts try to creep in you are amazing, you are beautiful and important, you hold the universe in your hands and head even if it is your universe. Its your special place all that art comes from. You control when and where you share, or if you share at all. Its up to you, no excuses or reasons needed.
Taking your place in the world as an artist was your destiny. I believe you must have known at a very young age this is where you wanted to go. It’s a very special spot and no one else can fill your shoes. You are unique, dedicated and inspired. You inspire others with your individual work, and amaze the people around you.
Enjoy your gift and live it to the fullest~
