Do not forget to play in life
and really enjoy it.”
I believe that creating art is about play and having fun.
Today’s art is “Over the Mountains, Across the Plains, to Grandma’s House We Go.” This is a playful piece depicting a family’s adventures of driving cross country to visit Grandma in Florida for Christmas — and her response to their being late. It is available for sale in the Espirational Gallery.
And don’t forget Espirational Live which includes spiritual teachings, artist’s talks and sometimes just chit chat. Follow us on Facebook and you might be able to actually catch us live where you can interact with me if you like.
In January there will be another live artist’s talk. The topic will be “Gone Crazy.” I will give a brief history of the “crazy quilt” and show of few of my crazier works. Keep watch for the time and date. https://www.facebook.com/espirational
“Art is not a thing, it is a way.” ~Elbert Hubbard
I love this quote by Elbert Hubbard (June 19, 1856 – May 7, 1915, American writer, publisher, artist, and philosopher).. What a simple, yet elegant way of stating a truth by which I live. I often like to say art is not what we do, it is who we are.
Art is a way. A way of seeing, a way of self-expression, a way of changing the world and a way of life. These things all apply to both the artist and the viewer.
Something to think about the next time you look at a work of art.
“The whole culture is telling you to hurry, while the art tells you to take your time. Always listen to the art.” ~Junot Diaz
