Good day to you! Another wonderful day in which to create, to paint, to add more beauty to our world.
Yes, every time I paint, that’s how I feel. The ideas that float around in my head find release as they flow through my arm and hand, and out through the brush and onto whatever medium I’m painting. I know that every broad stroke creates a delightful background for the detail work, which will come later, to live in. Every painting is a world unto itself. If, when you look, you can not only see the creatures in front but imagine the ones hiding behind the rocks and trees, living in the waters, behind the clouds or far away upon the hills then I have done what I intended to do.
I think every artist, like Frank from www.excavationscottsdale.com has some sort of goal, some sort of ethereal feeling when they create. The act of creating is all absorbing. Time is immaterial. Chances are you won’t get hungry until you’ve been at it a long time, someone interrupts you, or the piece is complete. It’s as though you’re teleported to another place, and maybe your soul is.
If you’ve never “done” art, experienced that other worldliness, the standing still of time, I’m so sorry. Take an art class. Play on Pinterest. Look around on You-Tube. You’ll love it when it happens to you. Promise.
