What’s your art? I’ve been thinking a lot on this topic, actually.
I’m very blessed to be surrounded by talented models, photographers, coil builders, juice line owners, tattoo artists, jewelry makers, mod makers, friends, family, writers, reviewers, bloggers, vloggers, and so forth on a daily basis in my social media feeds and circles. Their images that reflect their art is of true beauty, as it is expressive and always has something to say. This is what I love the most; art in its most untouched form.
I’ve always been a creative person and marched to my own beat. I do my own thing and I always try to encourage others to continue to express themselves, too. Find your artistic voice and use it. Don’t stop and don’t look back. We only move forward.
Is it a little scary putting yourself out there like that for the world to see? Absolutely. The world has a few choices when they use their senses and come across our masterpieces. Our art can be berated and verbally destroyed by some, it can be ignored by others or it can be appreciated by those it was meant for.
As artists, we bear our souls in hopes that our expression speaks to someone who can appreciate it or even connect with that expression. That is where the magic you’ve created happens for me.
One of my favorite poems that really speaks to me is The Dream Keeper.
Fellow artists, I encourage your creativity. In fact, I need your creativity daily. You encourage me and help spark my own creativity. I need to be surrounded by beautiful words and pictures, as your art is what touches my soul. It is my hungry heart that needs to stop, look and appreciate your expression no matter what message it is you’re trying to convey nor what platform you use.
Don’t be discouraged by those that don’t appreciate, understand or like your art. It isn’t meant for them.
