Redefining Art

Art - Loving unconditionally through whatever medium you choose.

When you think of art, you probably immediately think of watercolor on canvas. If you’re really observant, you might also recognize art as a perfectly composed photograph, or a song that pulls violently on your heartstrings. You’re on the right track.

What do all these forms of art have in common? They’re creative, passionate, thoughtful, and generous. They create emotional experiences that transcend our otherwise mundane lives. So perhaps there are other forms of art we don’t recognize so easily.

- A chef whose food looks as delicious as it tastes
- A mother who whispers words of love to her wailing infant
- A waitress serving hungry patrons with her infectious smile
- A shop owner who leaves every browsing customer feeling happier than when they walked in the door

… And the list goes on, and on, and on.

The Truth About Art

This doesn’t mean that everything is art. It just goes to show that everything can be done artfully. And if everything can be done artfully, than we are all artists. Or at least we all can be.

What is it that you can bring to the world that no one else can? More importantly, what can you change about how you do what you do in a way that makes it more artful?

A Bit About This Blog

I’m trying to live my life more artfully. I’m learning all I can through reading and observation, and I’m going to be sharing it all with you.

My goal is to bring more art into the world. Better yet, to recognize the art all around us that so often goes unnoticed. But most importantly, I’m hoping to inspire you to find the artist within yourself and to give you the courage to share it honestly with the world.
