“I need this to be an album cover. This exact piece. This one. It has to happen. How can I get it?”
As an artist, there is just something extra awesome and flattering about your work speaking to others, even if it’s not in the same way it speaks to you.
My goal is to inspire others to discover and embrace their own creativity, and sometimes you never know just what it is you are sparking in someone.
This was an intentional piece for me – “When you can’t look on the bright side, I will sit with you in the dark.” I had a vision, and I brought it to life and instantly fell in love. If you read the first sentence of this post, apparently I wasn’t the only one who did.
A friend of mine, and fellow artist (musician) reached out immediately when I first shared a photo of this freshly poured piece. Stuck in a rut at the time, he was inspired right away by this piece and just knew he had to have it. Honestly, I was shocked. I wouldn’t even begin to think that my artwork could inspire others in a way to get their creative juices flowing again, and I’m honored to know that this piece will be well loved and have a very intentional purpose in its future.
Your takeaway from this is: Keep creating. Or start! You never know what will come of it and what you might spark in others. Everyone sees art in their own way, and we should continue to share it in all of its forms so that it may inspire or bring joy to others.
