The Experience

Look at the world through the eyes of an artist:

Art is not just about putting pencil to paper or brush to canvas. Art is a way of seeing the world, a way of expression, and sometimes a need

Art can be exciting, empowering, and an expression of love. But most of all, it is an extension of the artist themselves.

Most of us know the feeling of being moved by a work of art, whether it is a song, a play, a poem, a novel, a painting. When you find a connection to an art piece, a memory is triggered, an emotion or a feeling.

Now take that feeling and imagine it in everything you do; baking a cake, doing your daughters hair, completing that document‚Ķ.. Now your connection with these tasks is real. You want to bake that cake, and do your daughter’s hair, over and over to keep that feeling alive. That is the gift an artist gives through their work.

Now imagine having to give that feeling away, over and over again. It can be empowering, enthralling, and motivating, but also draining. To give a little of yourself with each artwork, the mood you are in, the pain, the love, the excitement. Art is never just a thing.

When you are next overcome with emotion; whether it be pain, excitement, love, or even just happiness, pick up a pen or pencil, and just doodle. Don’t try and draw something in particular. Just scribble, draw shapes, lines, patterns, and just see where it goes. Try again each time you are feeling a different emotion.¬†
