What goes into a piece of art? Is it magic or intuition- imagination or intricate design? Or is it just plain hard work and determination? It may just be a little of all of the above (disregard the magic, that’s just another word for perspective)
The maker of the artwork uses skill and imagination to release their itch to communicate the vision living in the mind’s eye; that idea that keeps them awake at night. And sometimes it takes more conviction than insight.
But together the grit, perseverance and creativity result in satisfaction and an opening up for new ideas to sprout.
Our world is better for the dreams and resolve of creatives and those of us who look on their work with awe. How did that color emerge, that note blend with the others- that image move my soul?
How have you fed your creative hunger recently? Are you a maker or a receiver? We both make a difference.
