The True Artist's Purpose“The True Artist's Purpose”The True Artist's Purpose by WhatHealsMeKillsMe
You are beautiful the way you are;
The dust of a million shining stars.
You are the child of the One who Creates,
It is your calling to find it in you to Create.
Create yourself a masterpiece,
And you will feel inner peace.
But wait, your work is not done.
The Creator in you waits for the One
To put the shards back together again;
Complete the cycle of that which is sent.
Your gift of Creation is broadly spent,
But few Create with Passion and Vision
To the point of pure soulful precision
To elevate you to new heights of ecstasy
To lead you to your beautiful destiny
That awaits One as pure
As a soul worth the Earth
To do as you will
With no threat of ills
Toward the homeostasis of this land;
The True Artist's Purpose of your mind and hands.
I am a self-taught artist, who is an avid hobbyist in the field of traditional art. I work with pens, colored pens, graphite pencils, charcoal pencils, colored pencils, and acrylic paint on multipurpose paper, canvas paper, canvas panels, and canvas. I also like to mix it up sometimes and include many media into the piece I'm working on. I'm still learning as I go. I'm usually working on 3 or 4 pieces at once (thank you A.D.D.!). I hope to work with oils again one day, and ultimately become an Art Therapist too. As Otep Shamaya says, "Art Saves"!|
In the not too distant future, I plan on collaborating with my husband who is a glass blower. Those will turn out badass! I can't wait until that idea comes to fruition! I plan on going to local art expos soon to get a feel for the scene and meet local artists and see how the whole art expo scene works. I plan on putting myself out there and exhibit my art also, in the future when I fine tune my painting style.
Unfortunately I've been having physical nerve problems that have slowed down my progress, but I do what I can when I can! It just gives me more resolve to get through as much as I can when I'm not in as much pain. I take advantage of those times; all of that is another reason I work on 3 or 4 projects at the same time. If I can't do one, I'm working on another, unless my nerve pain prevents me from doing any of it. But I know of an artist that is blind and paints phenomenal paintings; you'd never believe she's totally blind! So I try to remember her when I'm having a tough time on certain days. I also battle Bipolar Disorder, so that has an effect on the consistency of my work. I sometimes will draw or paint for weeks at a time every day, then take a 3 week hiatus from all art when I'm in a serious funk. I'm not just a Traditional Artist, I also occasionally write poetry.

When I favorite a piece, I always leave the artist a comment! I figure it's proper etiquette to at least say something to the artist regarding why I favorited their work. There have been occasions when I commented without favoriting, but my words stand strong nonetheless! If I were to favorite them all, I'd be lost in my favorites!!! In case you didn't notice, I'm a very wordy person and when I comment on your piece, I will give an honest critique that may become wordy on you, but it will always come from the heart! ♥ Art is my Passion!!! May you have a deviously creative day!
|I really wish to reward the very worthy talented artists here on dA with point gifts of my own! I also want to contribute to the groups I'm in with points to help them out. I started a group called #Bipolar-Artists, and would love to give points to my admins for their work they will be doing with me. I'm in much need of points, so if you find it in your heart to do so, click here and please donate! Also, if you know of any point contests for Poetry or Traditional Art, let me know! If you can spare a point or two, it would be MUCH appreciated! Thank you in advance for your generosity!|
