I've been working on some new art. I always find out something myself and my relationship with the creative process whenever I make new pieces of art.
This go-around my epiphany was that I do not really enjoy making art for a specific purpose(i.e. making a specific set for a coffee shop or bookstore).
I would rather create art from whatever comes from my heart(shouldn't it always be that way??). It seems like it is taking me quite a while to figure out that good art comes from deep within instead of doing something just for show or production.
I think this principle can be applied to other scenarios beside just creating. Friendships, decorating a house, our relationship of God always seem much more powerful when we are driven from heart.
I hope I can learn to accept what my heart is saying and what God is telling me.
