Artists and imagination

An artist never says “no” to imagination.

Isn’t that a great statement? And it’s so true.

An artist looks at a piles of stones-inspiration!

A box of crayons-inspiration!

A pile of junk-inspiration!

A bag of seashells-inspiration!

Empty jars-inspiration!

Tin cans-inspiration!

Paper-inspiration!

A true artist sees possibilities everywhere. Nothing is as it seems to be. Everything can be altered.

“It is what it is” is never a statement an artist considers for even a minute.

I’ve purposely kept the author of that statement a secret until now.

The statement “An artist never says “no” to inspiration.” was spoken by my five year-old grandson!

 I  know. I couldn’t believe it myself. But he’s always coming up with this kind of stuff. Genius, right?

wink, wink

wink, wink

Anyway, God bless and I hope you have a good day.

  1. It is such a blessing to be an artist as this is just how I think & feel but I think this applies to anyone who has a creative outlook. I will come in from painting, look in the fridge & see a few random products, only my husband knows how to make them into a great meal and yet he wouldn’t describe himself as an artist , he probably should! 🙂

    • I consider anyone who is creative in any field an artist. I have a cousin in the south who is a fantastic cook. I consider her an artist and envy her talent. And think about quiltmakers-some quilts I’ve seen and the delicate stitches are amazing. I personally believe most people are artistic in some form or another.
      Thanks for the comment.

    • Hey, Paul, what a nice thing to say. Our daughter had two cats once (I don’t like cats at all though). We got rid of the youngest cat (not that kind of get rid of) because we thought she was peeing on the carpet. It was the other one! Anyway, thanks for commenting.
