Thinking time in creativity

by martin davis artist

Typical isn’t it? that just when you have finished trying your damnedest to express something difficult or personal or straight from your soul you find something or someone that does it better – and could have saved you all the trouble.

In my earlier post about thinking time I struggled to express what someone is buying when they purchase a piece of original art. Well after I’d finished I came across this anonymous piece….which explains it a hell of a lot better.

“When you buy from an independent artist you are buying more than just a painting. You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures. You are buying days, weeks, months, years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You aren’t just buying a thing, you are buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a private moment in someone’s life. Most importantly you are buying that artist more time to do something they are truly passionate about; something that makes all the above worth the fear and the doubt; something that puts the life into the living.”

That’s what I meant to say!
