I have a prayer, a spirit, a breath that is inside me. It tells me to create. It cannot be silenced. It can only be quieted by creating.
I am aware of it, naturally. I listen to it. I submit to this intuition and combine it with my experiences. To connect with this prayer, this spirit, this breath is divine.
When I have captured some form of self-identity in a work of art, it is finished. A thought, an emotion, an experience is solidified, and I can separate from that identity. There is a journey in every piece of art, and also a lesson. When I can share this journey and this lesson with another human, an exchange of wisdom takes place.
