When you look at a painting, you can find that there is meaning within the matted board of colored pigments. Drawn from the layers of details upon the face of the artist’s creation, a deeper meaning resides that uncovers the artist’s intent. In the little details, we may discover a reflection of our own, a way of touching our very being. Art has a way of channeling to us a quality that goes beyond that of the ordinary.
Likewise, we can also see the art within our daily lives. While walking down a road, you can take a moment and realize that a painting is right in front of you.
How can you find meaning at a moment’s glance? Just simply imagine an art piece in front of you. Remember as you paint you begin at a special touch. Ask yourself, what is the meaning of what you are seeing. At first, it will take practice as in all things of life. There is a special chemistry of reflection and contemplation that can uncover meaning before your very eyes.
With a bit of imagination and good thought, you can find that right in front of you is a meaningful painting which you can call art.
First, believe in the world—that
there is meaning behind everything.
