The chief enemy of creativity is good sense. ~Pablo Picasso
How often do I put on a pretty face to the world when I feel dark inside. My artwork today is painting this picture. I am all too often guilty of hiding my true feelings in order to get along with the �world� trying to be someone or something that I think others expect me to be. I have reached a point in my life where I am attempting to create a new reality and a new persona for myself. The irony for me as I explore this idea is that I know deep down inside what that will look like but my surrounding environment will not allow this being to survive. So I am in the process of changing my environment to fit a new self.
I have never been an artist to the world before. I have hidden my creativity within a business environment and denied my �true colors�. Living a life of secret creation and sublime longing. I marry words and numbers in order to birth new ideas rather than stroking my fantasies of color and shape. I live a very solid life of accounting and administration and yet my inner artist is begging to be set free. Finally I am making peace with my own inner ideals and taking a risk that I never saw coming. It is difficult, if not impossible, to allow yourself to be if you don�t know what that might really look like.
Creativity is a breath of magic born on the spirit of impulse. It knows no bounds and can live in almost any environment and yet if it is not given a chance it will die a slow and painful death. Most of us are creative in one way or another and yet many of us can�t see this. There are so many ways to have new ideas and so many more avenues of fatalistic endings. I thought that I was enjoying what I was doing right up until I realized that I wasn�t doing anything that actually made me happy. I lived to make a living and lost myself in the process.
Thank you very much to each and every person who has supported me as an artist. Over the last year I have enjoyed so many supportive comments and enthusiasm from so many people around the world. It has given me the courage to seek a new career for myself and finally envision another reality. I am being given a chance to make a change professionally that I never thought I would get. So thank you also to each and every person who has purchased one of my pictures. I can�t tell you how grateful I am for your support and how much this has changed my life. Have a wonderful day. Namaste
