what i love about 'art' is that it can be whatever the person making it, wants it to be. intention... In everyday life, it isn't allowed to openly expressive one's self without negative consequence often. Of course, depending on where you live, with freedoms and liberties one can stand on the highest soap box and sing their song to the world, unfilitered, revealing and vulnerable with no apologies. But what would the neighbors think? I am no different in these regards, in living within these boundaries. But in art, I exercise the potential of honest expressions. And it need not be profound, deep, shocking, etc... (thought sometimes it comes across that way) But just one person putting it out there, as honest as it is felt, thought, or experienced. and perhaps this is a non-sequitor, but i can't help but think how different art in general would be if it were created as a sacred practice in a realm void of any external influence (money, promotion, acceptance, etc). nonetheless, i am always grateful to the fact that it is a practice of infinite possibility. keep creating fellow artists!!
