It’s very easy for artists to become insular and not meet new people. That’s a shame because you don’t know if you will be helping a new person or they might be helping you on this journey. Your thinking becomes a little twisted if you are only thinking your own thoughts.
Books do help though. I just read Louis Lamour’s “Lonesome Gods”. Tremendous thought and philosophy and really good reading at the same time. Saw the other day “Fountainhead” by Ayn Rand. I had read the book twice when I was in my twenties but it had so much more meaning during the courtroom scene about keeping your integrity and being true to yourself. I don’t know what happened but I just started bawling.
This is what I meant about meeting new people and planting seeds of discovery in your mind. Meeting new people in books or thru coffee whatever but start that seed planting.
Working in acrylic mostly on canvas with texture, writing, speaking and teaching adults to finding their creative selves. Spiritual endeavoring to explore the journey of painting and creativity using faith and hope.
Now blossoming in new ideas and and new awareness.
