It's a lot to be to said when it comes to Art, even though most paintings don't speak directly out loud with words. A far I know of everything that has been created or invented has included an artistic process, rather a simple sketch or painting or a high rise, the one thing that is always true, is that it is an expression of ones self imagination.
For as long as we can remember throughout recorded history, art has been one of the most important roles of mankind in the very way creation creating though itself... creating from ones imagination is a gift, rather its symbols of meaning to communicate or inventing something for the use of it's need.
When I think about art being a major part of this existence and all that matters, I am humbled to be one of which this creative love flowing with feeling expressing itself through me is alive and powerful, and not for only how it makes me feel but others also.
When you hear the word ART what comes to mind? Is it one of the greats, Picasso, Rouse, Van Gough, Andy Warhol, Dali, etc...or is it colors, movement, architecture, design, music, poetry? Creatively they are just a few, I believe we all are creative, but only few followed their souls calling to create the things that were unique to them and master a creative expression to share with all to see.
It seems to be that those that trust their path and own their true expression are gifted the power and opportunity to share it with all. Enduring all the challenges of coming to learn of the journey for that artist or individuals unique voice to speak in images and color...all the pain the joy the emotions of this experience fueling their creations. Art is the creative force has the power to alter the way people see things rather its life we see or the unseen. Art has the power to uplift the spirit to a place of joy rather one is down or up, if your down, a colorful loved filled painting can alter you mood, lifting you up to a better joyous feeling...and if you already feeling good, you feel even better, and the other can be true to the down mood of a painting or sculpture.
I guess what I am saying here is that Art is a power that creates and expresses in the infinite because it is all imagination based out of love. My art is my communication to the people without words, communicating my souls journey in colorful truth. May it uplift those at their lowest to know they are more greater that they know and where they are is no more than that, you must see where you are going before you can get there, or trust you are already there and give thanks and be at peace. Love is the most beautiful colors!
As all things continue to change, one thing will always remain the same, creativity will be behind it. The Power of Art...
