ART can’t be contained.
No matter how much an artist tries to stop being an artist it always comes back.
Like the cat that leaves but keeps on showing up on the doorstep ( an old Muppet skit comes to mind) the artist for whatever reason can’t ultimately stop being true to their nature. Perhaps you’ve experienced this too.
For what reasons artists find to take a hiatus depends upon the artist however it’s often linked to a dissatisfaction with their results or even themselves. Yes a kind of perfectionism that haunts us.
Life can get too busy with jobs, social expectations and a myriad of good things. At the end of the day , though, there is a hunger to do more. The warm, caring nurture of time spent painting beckons us back to the easel, the canvas or preferred medium of your choice.
The shelter from the howls of cold wind and life itself once again calls us home to safety.
In this way Art cannot be contained. You may be a creative who thinks they can put off your inner call until retirement or until that list of home repairs needs to be finished but in the end you’ll find that spark of creativity is a hard thing to dowse .
The call to be creative leads you back over well trodden hills and forest paths to a home you keep hidden in your heart.
Isn’t it time you came in from the cold!
Have a creative day! Thanks for visiting.
