I came across this the other day, ( on Contemplating the moon) and just loved it! Man, can I relate to this! ...
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe.
To be your own man is a hard business.
If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened.
But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
- Rudyard Kipling-
This is how I feel about my art right now, I am just painting what I feel , having fun and endeavoring to remain detached to the opinion of others. I have spent far too long in the stifling, paralyzing quicksand of 'painting what people want'. or what i think, that may be.
One thing I do know ,is that my creativity right now is completely authentic, and ... it feels like freedom.
Cheers , Helen
