Create Art

Create Art is our topic for the Week 4 of our journey of 52 pictures with Focus on Life

Sally is so right - " There is no wrong way to be creative."  True.

When I see a young four year old child paint,  I see he is totally in to the process, some times even oblivious of the finished product.  He doesn't  care if his painting is coveted  in  art galleries.

 That happen as we grow old.

We become critical of our production.  We become our worst critique. Self criticism slowly creeps on  and  kills the artist child in us.

But to many people it is as vital as food.  Art is needed to nourish the soul.

I have this quote framed  and I  kept it  on my jewelry making table.

Yet, I think there needs to be a fine balance so that I can improve and  learn new things and sharpen my skill every day.  This week I plan to make some knitted valentine hearts with garnet and amethyst. Some thing like this but each one should be different.

 I am trying to become more organized.

I love to make jewelry but the harder part is selling them. And with out selling them how can I create more?  How'd I buy the raw materials?

Some times I feel like this too.

Then I pick up myself up and remind :

Please check all the other bloggers' posts and see what they are writing  about this topic -  CREATE ART

really like that last quote ... about not letting success go to your head, or failure to your heart. Good words to live by! Very interesting technique with the heart - like that!
