Are you head over heels, madly in love with your art? Is it serious? Are you in it for the long haul?
In this madness we call art, there are no middle gears. You either pop it into overdrive and push pedal to floor, or you hang back in the shadows hoping for the art to find you.
If you’re considering the latter, then perhaps you’ve been keeping your art hidden away from judging eyes. Here it rests – waiting, neglected and longing to be chosen.
Just like any relationship, your art needs attention to flourish. It requires our time, our everything.
To fall in love with your art is an act of commitment, of saying yes, of refusing to hold anything back (tweet this).
Just as we must give love to others without condition to receive the same, you must give the gift of compassion, understanding and patience to receive the gift of creating in return.
With these gifts, there is a surge of intensity, of a greater purpose and connection between us and the rest of the world that once released is difficult to contain.
Art and love, love and art – neither can exist without the other.
It in this sacred space, where you and the work at hand are one entity, that we can begin to truly grab a hold of our journey as artists and shape it as our own.
