Quote About Artists...

I DO have permission to use the below image and quote that is (c) by jstone

As you all know, I have a page on my website called Free Your Artist, with motivational quotes, exercises and affirmations.

I also firmly believe that every person is creative and an artist in some way, even if it is a mother raising children (which I consider a great art form).

I think I also have told you that a hobby is doing collage or decorating my engagement calendar/journal (more on the journal later). So I keep a lot of cards and advertisements and stickers that catch my fancy.

I ran across a card (see above) I was given one holiday season by Steven, a critique buddy of mine, and I'm SO GLAD I kept it, because it is a quote that shouldn't be forgotten.

The most visible creators I know of are those artists whose medium is life itself. The ones who express the inexpressible~without brush, hammer, clay or guitar. They neither paint nor sculpt~their medium is being. Whatever their presence touches has increased life. They see and don't have to draw. They are the artists of being alive...(c)jstone

Inside it says: With best thoughts & warmest wishes to each friend, artists all.

May your creativity run high today,

p.s. On a lighter note, Steven always searches for perfect cards and one year I got Santa with flying monkeys.
