Re: Some Food for an Artist's Soul!

Hello Pink Readers,
I am enjoying my summer break and hope everybody is on to something fun and fulfilling! Working on some new pendants and more-coming soon to my etsy shop. Will also introduce water color florals and other nature themes.

Thought of sharing excerpts from a write up I had put together a while ago while studying a course in design. My musings on an artist's role:
An artist is a person with talent, vision, creativity, and a purpose to make something different, a piece of work that truly decorates, beautifies, and appeals to different sensibilities. Art is necessary to enhance life. It adds enthusiasm and joy to an otherwise mundane existence. It brings out the best in human potential. It is also a responsible medium.
Any creation cannot be art. It has to satisfy certain conditions. Art is supposed to have a significant degree of aesthetic interest, often surpassing that of most everyday objects-Stanford Encyclopedia. This means that artists have to create pieces that satisfy this condition, so not any random creation can be art.
A piece of art always has the edge if it brings about innovation, education, and a positive change.

Some food for thought.......enjoy!
