One Hand Extended into the Universe

“Art is standing with one hand extended into the Universe and one hand extended into the world, and letting ourselves be a conduit for passing energy.”

Albert Einstein

All creativity involves revealing one’s inner self to the world. The urge to create forces the artist to remove portions of their self-protective barriers. A connection must be made between the indefinable and reality. This connection is courageously braided from diaphanous diamonds threads.

The work must speak for itself in some way. When it came time for critique my art teachers would say don’t tell me if you like it or not, tell me how it makes you feel. Art either moves you or it doesn’t. Being in nature should move people to feel protective of our earth. In this way the energy of the almighty artist captures the imagination and influences human nature.

Summon your artist vision when strolling along. Sense the lines of energy swirling about. Abandon logic and reason. Meander. Free your mind from the influences of the artificial world. Be a conduit for passing energy.

Allow the pure blessings of our world to wash away your discomfort and anxiety. Take time for yourself. Extend your hand into the universe and bring happiness to your heart.
