Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time
All my hours of quiet meditation are documented right here in the art.
Thomas Merton once wrote,
‘Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time’..
I’ve been an artist my entire life. I come from a family of artists going as far back as my great grandparents. Sometimes I feel like generations of artists have had a hand in the art I create.
Perhaps that’s the norm considering that all art is a mix of influences coming together in an expressive shape.
But how art is expressed is up to the artist.
I tend to enjoy listening to music while I paint. It’s a relaxing yet invigorating experience that enables me to recharge my batteries.
An artist doesn’t intentionally distance themselves from people they love, they just exist in another dimension of the same world while they create. Perhaps those who complain just don’t try to understand that dimension and can’t find the door.
Here’s the door…
I have an Art & Music Live Series on Youtube/jacquelinejax
Subscribe and turn on notifications so you can join during a live stream..
The Art & Music Series is a new live stream that focuses on creating a space where you can relax and get inspired. I also get to introduce new indie music to a wider audience including art fans, art collectors and fine artists. .
You can tune in to enjoy some relaxation time with me watching art being created while discovering some new music.
I’ve seen people already tuning in on their lunch hour and to wind down in the evening after a long day.
Even if you just run the videos while your working, you can enjoy the music and know that you’re never alone..
I’m only a door away.. Just push play.. :)
