In the beginning for me, art was a painful and dreadful endeavor. One I would not care to venture into, had I not been invited by the Spirit. Previously, I achieved a BS in Finance and a Masters in Computer Information Systems and had little concern for matters lacking in substance. I was ripe for a dramatic and intrusive Spiritual intervention to open that door so long ago closed. That opened door led me to a new world.
I sometimes do not realize the audience I have. I may feel that I am not alone. Discerning a spiritual presence when taught to only acknowledge the physical, may take time. Patience, Prayer, and Pondering give me the best Information.
After the early years of everything being sourced from the Spirit, I am finding inspiration from my surroundings and taking joy in what I receive.
Although the Artist paints the painting, it is the Art Buyer who lives with the painting. Regardless of what a painting may say to me, it will always say something different to someone else. Allow yourself to see and feel and take in the inspiration.
