Anyways. I've been lazy. And I have a question I wish I had an answer to.
I've been looking around some blogs and it apears to me that all those artists out there in blog land have found some spiritual reason to make art. It’s so frustrating that I don't seem to know WHY I create art. They hear whispers if not screams. I hear nothing.
Kelly Rae Roberts posted a link to Simon Sinek’s video where he talks about selling the WHY and not the WHAT. I have a really hard time figuring out the why. I don’t find the words that would describe my WHY.
I create because I like pretty faces. I create because I want to try new techniques. Sometimes I even create because I’m bored or when I have a fall out with my hubby. But I don’t feel any divine calling in it. Nobody came to me in a dream and told me to make pretty faces on mixed media backgrounds. There was no earth shattering moment or incident in my life that made me turn to art to express my pain or joy. Art did not save my soul, cause my soul was not in need of saving.
I have no reason to create.
But I still do.
So how do I figure out my WHY?
I keep reading the "about" section of artist's blogs and sites. They have such insightful stories to tell about how they came to be what/where/who they are at this moment. Their words are so inspirational telling us how they dreamed, how they feared and how they finally took a leap.
Me? Have you noticed I don't have an "about" section on top there?
I need some tips how to go about this. Any suggestions?
