Ever felt frustrated because of that daily stress? Or feel like living under a rock due to all the tension? Want to take some time out from the rush?
What better way to let it all go than through art?
That’s right. ART.
BUT: How do you make the art speak?
Curiouser and Curiouser…
Creativity and inspiration.
Being unique, and expressing that uniqueness.
Because this is how you speak out. And you have to use art to speak.Make that art speak!
Because you don’t have to be a Vincent Van Gogh.
And you needn’t be Walt Disney either.
In fact, when you really think about it, these two did start from somewhere. And it wasn’t creating masterpieces.
And do you really expect art to speak for itself?
It’s you that has to initiate this!
You have to be the proactive being through which the art speaks.
Vincent Van Gogh? During his lifetime, he only sold one painting. His paintings weren’t properly appreciated until after his death. Art speak, all right!
Walt Disney? He was fired by Kansas City Star for ‘lacking imagination’ and ‘having no good ideas’.
Your Microphone – Your Expression
Your journey may be about to begin.
Do horses inspire you? Or are you a natural at expressing yourself on paper?
Well, guess what?
It doesn’t matter.
Right now, you’re limitless. And you only have to take a look at yourself.
Get ready and let the art speak!
What are you good at? What makes you feel the happiest?
Also, what drives you?
What gives you that boost?
Focus on that. Zoom in on it.
You know why?
Because that might be it. It might be your ‘ultimate purpose’.
Your passion. Your reason of being.
Call it whatever you please. It is being expressed via art. You want to visualize it. It’s all right there in your head but you have that urge to bring it out.
Know that you can do it.
Because that is what art is for. It is a means to vent and to let go.
And most importantly, to express yourself. Because what you have to say is important. It matters.
Do not fool yourself into believing otherwise. Your words, your paints, your ideas; whatever they may be.
Grab that pen and pick up the brush! Strap your boots on.
Because you’ve got it.
And if you think you can’t find a platform, you just haven’t looked hard enough. Because, as cheesy as it sounds, there’s something for everyone out there. Admit it, you are being a little lazy.
Get up and get going!
Heaven knows artistic urges strike less often than one would like!
And if you’ve got that urge, then you have to splurge.
What DRIVES you? What INSPIRES you? Have you found the IT factor?
