art is incredible to me.
at its very core what art is, is simply taking small foundational components and—through careful, cautious consideration—composing a work so remarkable as to be able to move someone to tears.
what is a painting but shade and contrast? what is a poem but a collection of simple words?
often times folks get hung up on not being the best. or they compare their abilities with someone else’s and begin to feel inadequate. but—as i have said before—the key is not about being better; it is about being different.
you don’t have to be better than anyone else. remarkable things are created every day from the simplest of components. take the skills you do have (at whatever level they are), the knowledge that you have, the experience that only you can bring to a situation and orchestrate your own work of art.
