There's art everywhere. We're surrounded by art. Whether it's a song, a painting, a poem, a movie, a photograph, a book or just a piece of writing. For me it's a way to escape, something to get lost in. I love art. Any kind of art and the creative mind that’s behind it.

Now that I have time I've started drawing and painting again. I had forgotten how happy it makes me. I can spend hours on a drawing without even realising that it's been that long. It’s such a great feeling, when you’re so invested in something that you forget your surroundings.

I always thought I wasn’t that creative and that everyone’s better than me. Also I do certainly rely on pinterest and tumblr for inspiration but I've realised that no matter what, I'm still creating something that’s my own. So that means I am being creative. I learnt this from a post that Carmen wrote last year about creativity, a very good one may I add. From her post it stuck with me that no matter what we do we are being creative and that it’s okay to not be that good at something because you’re still putting your heart on something whether it’s a painting or some words on a paper. I’d like you reading this to believe this too. 
Here's 10 quotes about art and creeativity that I want to share with you:

"Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh

"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time”. ~ Thomas Merton

“There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into sun” ~ Pablo Picasso

“To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.” ~ Kurt Vonnegut

“It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to." ~ Jean-Luc Godard

“You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” ~ Maya Angelou

“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced” ~ Vincent Van Gogh

“Don’t let a single day go by without writing. Cause even garbage eventually becomes compost with a little treatment.” ~ Alex Myers

“Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it” ~ Salvador DalĂ­

“Creativity is contagious, pass it on” ~ Albert Einstein

  1. Wow! Your drawings are SO good! I love the new design ;) It's very pretty! x

  2. I was reading this and loving it (because you might as well know that I love art and also, because your drawing is AMAZING, and I saw you mentioned my entry, which made me extremely happy.

    Seriously, thanks, means a lot and the fact that it kinda "inspired" you or made you see things a little bit different, means even more.

    Keep writing and sharing your beautiful mind with us.
    Love, Carmen x
