Soul & Inspiration – SOLD
Soul & Inspriation
“Say not, “I have found the truth,” but rather, “I have found a truth.” Say not, “I have found the path of the soul.” Say rather, “I have met the soul walking upon my path.” For the soul walks upon all paths. The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed. The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.” Kahlil Gibran, in The Prophet (1923)
Soul is an entity without physical or material reality; it consists of your mind, character, thoughts, and feelings. It is a person’s moral or emotional nature or sense of identity.
But the definition that connects with me as an artist is – the soul is an emotional or intellectual energy or intensity, especially as revealed in a work of art or an artistic performance.
Then you add in inspiration – the action or power of moving the intellect or emotions. The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. I definitely found my inspiration in the creation of abstracts.
So as Kurt Vonnegut, the American writer says “To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to grow your soul. So do it”.
I titled this painting “Soul & Inspiration” as a reminder to me that with a little soul and my continued unequivocal energy, enthusiasm and passion to create art, I am truly growing my soul. Hopefully one or two of my paintings touch your soul and provide you with inspiration.
“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”- Henry Ward Beecher
