Hello my fellow artists. We artists have the advantage of welcoming each and every day with enthusiasm; a day to do work which we love. To be sure, it is a gift to be an artist. Do you enjoy your present lifestyle? Start your journey to discover the creative artist within your self.
Consider how many people drive themselves to, on, and from a job which they do not like doing, but need to for the sake of financial income until they find an employment slot with work they enjoy performing.
Oh, I agree with you, there are days when we as artists are not happy with our situations. That is the point; it is the situation, not the “self”. However, it is critical that our self stays alert, strong, and focused.
The reason for staying alert is to be mindful of our inspirations and ideas to help discover the creative artist within our soul. It is the artistic creativity which will give us the solutions to get rid of negative or unwanted situations because of our new found talents.
Working all creativity coming alive into a physical product is amazing. It is a blessed talent.
Did you read that last word… talent? The talent which is your artistry can never be taken away from you. It is yours alone. The natural ability which you possess is the talent which makes you an artist.
Because our art is our livelihood we take our abilities for granted. But the one thing which an artist does that many other forms of employment cannot offer is our inborn talent. It is our natural abilities to create an original product from imagination to its physical existence for others to enjoy.
An artist has the ability to originate and control their destiny. Some of us know as a child that we are destined to be special or to be a part of something special. Some of us are able to identify that niche early in life. Others may need to explore until they discover the creative artist within which abounds with creative ideas and skills.
I have found there is an irony in this exploration. When you look back on that winding road of searching with its many detours, you were actually gathering information and experiences in preparation for the specialized niche. When your eyes opened you discovered your natural abilities for successful living.
People who are very close to us often times do not understand, question, or criticize our quest. But just as a man needs to climb a mountain and cannot explain why; we need to climb our creative mountain of painting, drawing, sculpture, and more. It is absolutely amazing how a new world opens for happiness and contentment when you discover the creative artist within.
