“An ode to art”
It had been a while since I picked up a brush, but when I did it instantly made me feel alive again.
For some unknown reason yet to be defined I stray away from doing what defines me every now and then. But I always keep coming back to it, like the ocean is always pulled back to the shore, rolling in on the waves of the tide.
When I look at this picture it makes me realize how much I miss it when I’m not doing it.
Doing what I love makes me think. It also calms my mind to a point where there’s nothing but focus on the movement of my hand. It’s meditative. It’s complete and utter chaos. It makes me shine, especially when I push myself beyond what I’m comfortable doing. It makes me confront insecurities and forces me to admit that I have a lot to learn.
It’s there when I need solitude and need to focus on being comfortable in my own company. It opens doors to people and opportunities. It pushes me forward, there’s this insatiable lust for creativity inside me that always wants to learn more. Do more. Essentially be more.
But to me, art is joy. Most of all it’s joy. Create, mess up, learn, succeed and then do it all over again.
Art is my damn homegirl.
