I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!

I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.

Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.

With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.

Let me begin with this:

I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.

  28. Richard Ball -- heehee ... thanks, my friend! The couple and all the kids were at the beach when I was shooting and I snapped off a shot while she was helping the kids down from a large rock; I figured gravity wouldn't show up properly in this kind of place anyway ... ;o). The koalas, I can take no responsibility for ... they wandered in while I was planting daisies ...

  34. What a wonderful painting to delve into and discover.  The details are magnificent.  I could get lost in here for an hour or two looking at all the happenings and the scenes with the scene.  Thank you for sharing your magic and whimsy!

  39. Maki Silberberg -- hahaha! #poormaki  ... I'll sneak that into the koalas' contract and send them over to you. They may not be able to stop the screaming, but at least it will be of a different timbre, more like squealing, instead .. ;o)). Thank you, dear ... now, go have a nap ... ;o7

  48. oh mercy day, as I stroll down your page it just keeps getting better. I may just get lost here and stay a while!

    ReplyDelete
  49. That was totally my intention, Cheryl Cooper, thank you! ... enjoy your stroll, dear ...  watch out for the daisies; if you get too close, they drop pollen all over you and then you're totally yellow during the rest of your adventure. (Oh, and the koalas ... they always want a hug when you go by, so don't freak out when they hold their arms up to you ... ;o7)
