the gift

Sunday, March 29, 2009

On this cold, windy day I have taken some time to relax, read and reflect on why I really paint. I started reading the book "The Gift - Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World" by Lewis Hyde and would like to share one of my favorite statements thus far "the gift: whatever we have been given is supposed to be given away again."

I have been thinking: What does my art give me? . . . here's the start of my list that I plan to add to daily, because there are so many . . . problems to solve, challenges to overcome, opportunity to grow, a chance to use the gift I have been given, opportunity to learn and travel, the chance to see, to really see things differently, and the opportunity to take risks, break rules and make mistakes and have fun - everyday! I think I will keep on painting!
