Do Not Forget to Play

“Over the Mountains, Across the Plains, to Grandma’s House We Go” — Copyright 2012 by R.A. Robbins Available in the Espirational Gallery.

 

Do not forget to play in life

and really enjoy it.” 

  —Eileen Caddy

 


 

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.

Art is Not a Thing

“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.
