2 thoughts on “How people live with my art”
It must be a great satisfaction for you to know people live with your art and that they have a constant reminder of some connection you made with them through your art. In a world where so much of our everyday “needs” are so disposable, you have created something more lasting. Stay groovy
I am not a social person, so I think I am communicating with people through my art and writing. It means the world to me to be able to touch people’s hearts, minds or souls with my work – and to feel a connection through it. It is beautiful. It can be powerful. I’ve met many people who can relate to the pain of my work, many people who are fighting depression or trauma. I love that my art can bring them joy and comfort, and to let them know that they aren’t alone.
Even if I’m not a social person – and very uncomfortable with the social pressure of hanging out with friends just to act loyal or to erase the guilty feeling of not being a good friend, I have a special place in my heart for all those connections I’ve made – here on my blog or through my art.
