What keeps you up at night? What is on your mind all day?
I’m not talking about bills, to-do lists, or any other crap we are forced to deal with on a regular basis.
What is it that you can’t wait finish work and go do?
For me this is art. I want to learn more, do more, and create more. Recently, I have been laying awake all night thinking of how I can do the next piece. How can I master it? What formula am I doing wrong? What am I doing right. A few days ago I painted a canvas and was in the point of tears. Why? Because after many mistakes, I finally achieved what I wanted. I was so proud! I wanted….no needed to do more.
Art is like air. One should crave it so badly that living without art would be difficult.
This quote from an unknown source has become very true for me. I was a young artist who then was forced to deal with life. Babies, jobs, bills, etc. etc. Many years I went through life without creating. Now that I have come back I couldn’t image life without.
