art

As a child, my imagination was wild and endless. If I was given a blank piece of paper with crayons, I would give you my own version of a masterpiece. But now, I would probably stare at the paper not knowing what to do with it. I feel like as I'm getting older, I'm lacking imagination. It's kind of hard when everything we do gets judged. This restricts us and puts a barrier from what we really want to do. I fear the arts. Why? Because you are supposed to be talented. I look at other people's beautiful creations and I'm just in awestruck. I would never be able to do that. I feel like it's a competition, but it should not be. I believe everyone is an artist in their own way. It is supposed to be a way to express any emotions or feelings into a work of art. And it should all be accepted. 

I need to tell myself to not be scared. I want to let my mind explore the possibilities that I can do that I have yet to discover. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make my soul grow. I want to be inspired, and I probably already am by others. I want my art to define who I am and share a part of me to the world. I want to have created something.

  1. Art is such a beautiful thing. I really want to major in something that involves arts, but it is a really hard category to get a job into but, urgh, I love it so much. It really helps express my character.

  3. I feel you. I used to draw all the time, until I was about ten, then my love started to lose its spark. Fortunately, I'm in an Art class at school now, so I'm reviving my love a little bit. It feels nice to make something again.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  4. Ah, don't worry about what others are doing. And believe me, I understand the struggle. Just remember: "Other peoples' successes are not your failures."
