There isn’t any exact recipe for creating an artistic piece. Weather that may be a story, a book, a video of some sort or paintings/drawings, but there is a teacher that becomes some sort of master of the entire process and that teacher is ”sadness”.
There is a saying that tells us ”Happiness never created art” as well as the fact that ”I have never seen a strong person with an easy past”. Both are true by default.
Not in many cases, an artist came out of a beautiful childhood.
For many people art is a way – the healthiest – to escape their own existence. Art makes you dive in head first in your creation and lose yourself in it.
Someone told me recently how dare I consider myself a writer, isn’t that arrogance – they said.
I rarely talk about myself as a writer, except for the name of the website, but in the end, no matter on what level my writings are, it’s what I do and what I enjoy most.
But in the end what are the characteristics of a person that may express herself through a form of art in the course of a life time?
Well let’s put it this way, you need a person that:
- is 50 % introverted or more
- Has been or is going through a difficult situation
- is sensitive
- has a rich imagination
- has depth
Now, truly important are mostly the first two. Depth and sensitivity can come along as a result of the hard times he/she have faced.
If he/she writes non fiction, imagination is not a must.
If it’s another form of art imagination is the key to everything.
