November 14, 2015Writers Digest November PAD Challenge/ Art


what is art after all        it is something              i have been doing most of my life

art is to explore             it is to imagine              art is to visually solve a problem

it is to rip the covers off the heart                to expose the soft underbelly of the soul

art inspires                     art renews                    shows us another way of seeing

there is no right way to do it                              or the right way is your way

as individual      as your fingerprint      it is a visual language like poetry without words

...or maybe with words            made of line                    form

value                              texture                                       color

maybe a million other things        there are no rules about what the artist uses to make art

still there are rules about design     the carrier of the meaning   today's art is not yesterday's art

it is a visual response to the world around us     what is created today      is created for today

not judged against what was created yesterday      art is a personal statement         unique

it should take our breath away           carry us home                ride the magic carpet

"Art rip off the heart...expose the soft underbelly of the soul." Wow. That is EXACTLY what it is, my friend.
