A little play-with-words from me … to you… a small snippet of un-edited thoughts on ART –
“It is a message … a flow of energy
From the heart… the soul.
Art is an expression of love,
It materialises the MYSTERY of
The UNKNOWN… removing the
“UN” from UN-KNOWN;
Don’t strive to make GREAT Art,
Just MAKE, Art.
Don’t strive to be a GREAT Artist,
Just BE an Artist.
The desire to create great works of art,
Makes it harder to create any Art at all!
With any worthwhile GOAL, the pursuit
of it, requires COURAGE, To begin with.
Nothing can be achieved without it.
Matter of fact, life itself,
EXPANDS or CONTRACTS in
Direct proportion to Courage.
Your heart.. your soul … your mind,
With your Creative output…
Every person faces CREATIVITY FAILURE (S),
Throughout their lives,
And the trick is to survive them;
Successful Creative Artistry of any art medium,
Is built on the back or successful creative failures;
To deal with these creative failures,
One must summon courage
To manoeuvre these CREATIVE U-TURNS;
By, firstly, extending oneself sympathy,
One must be more COMPASSIONATE with oneself;
I see the Creative Artist 👨🎨 WITHIN,
as – a CHILD;
And what does a child do?
A child – sulks, throws tantrums, holds
Grudges, hides irrational fears – like –
Fear is the dark, the bogeyman …
Work on convincing the WHOLE YOU,
To be released from these child fears and
Come out to play.
As LAO – TZU said –
“Be really WHOLE and all
Things come to you.”

Until next time,
