I thought I’d look at some inspiring and happy craft areas… this is what I found to share:
A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment
a single man contemplates it,
bearing within him the image of a cathedral.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince.
Life beats down and crushes the soul;
and art reminds you that you have one.
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.”
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
Creativity is knowing how to hide your sources
You can’t use up creativity.
The more you use, the more you have.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.
Art is knowing which ones to keep.
Every child is an artist,
the problem is staying an artist when you grow up.
