I Love the Expression of Art

    I'm currently trying to develop my painting

    ability - I've spent a fair amount taking inspiration from other artists - but I'm having trouble finding ideas/concepts to paint directly from me. I guess I wanted to throw out a question to the void - how does one tap into their inner self to find ways to express it? Any...

    Inspire: 1. to fill with an animating,

    quickening, or exalting influence 2. to produce or arouse (a feeling, thought, etc.) Muse: 1. To think about, dream "The ‘Muse’ is not an artistic mystery, but a mathematical equation. The gift are those ideas you think of as you drift to sleep. The giver is that one you...

    It is a mistake to talk about the artist looking

    for his subject. In fact, the subject grows within him like a fruit and begins to demand expression. It is like childbirth. The poet has nothing to be proud of. He is not master of the situation, but a servant. Creative work is his only possible form of existence, and his every...

    ART

    Art for me is communication, when words are not enough, when you are exploding with something you want to share with all existences: that results in expression of what your inner self is screaming to the world.

    All Art Is Beautiful

    I love expressionist art as long as no living thing is harmed.  I love the moving windows in the giant store fronts where the person is acting out some portion of an advertisement.  I love the real life art exhibits that travel throughout the country.  AWESOME but...

    A Way About It

    I see art as anything that you create and put time and effort into.  It can be writing, painting, mosaics, knitting, music, etc.  You sit at the beginning of the effort with nothing but random images and thoughts.  You don't think of the ultimate ending or it is...

    I Don't Know What to Say.

    I know a lot of artists. All kinds. My favorite artist is Scott Glazier and his regard for his own soul rips my heart out. Freaking Aquarians. Just because the are closest to God they think testing the limits is humorous. And they are righteous about it. That's hard for me...

    Why I Love

    I love art. That's quite simple to state, isn't it? I don't know anyone who doesn't. Even the person who's planning to tear down a lovely old library to build yet another parking lot would claim that he or she loves art. I've always been intrigued by this. Besides the fact I felt...

    I Love Art. ...

    I love art. Paintings, sculptures, wood working, ceramics, photographs, writing, etc. If not for art this world would be so unimaginative. We would only look at things and remember them in our minds and who knows how long a mind hangs on to beautiful things it sees??

    Self Portrait

    Everything you do, every work of art you create is a piece of you, the way you draw a smile or the way you sculpt an arm is you.  Art is possibly the most expressive thing a person can do in their life, beautiful in many ways. Aesthical or communicative art has purpose, art...

    I used to do conceptual art at school.
