Your'e an Art Star!
When of my favorite things to do as a kid was to play air guitar! I would rock out with my siblings in my pajamas and pretend that I was putting on a concert. The audience would roar and applaud my electric guitar skills for I was a rock goddess! As I opened my eyes reality would sit in and I would hear my mother’s command to remove myself off of her sofa. The most exhilarating thing about those moments was the feeling I would get. I would feel accomplished, loved, and just full on happy. I loved sharing a moment with other people that I may not even see again. Now that I am grown up, I have not become a rock start (yet ;) however I like to think of myself as an ART STAR!
As an artist, I have expressed my artistry in many forms: theater, music, painting, writing, etc. Each and every time I would do so, I would get that same feeling that I received as a child within my rock star imaginative world. I didn’t need any approval or recognition from others that I was an artist or even a good one.
I could see the effects my artistry had on others and realize that I had something. As time moves forward, I am consistently working on my craft, so I can become an even better artist. Think of a moment that you had in your life that made you feel invincible, that everything you did touched the hearts of many people in a good way that inspired them. The notion of being a star has its good and bad attributes. But let’s only think of the positive side; Inspiration, encouragement, motivation, creativity, these are all positive effects that one who is a star can and have provided through various art forms. So can you.
Want to be a star? Then be one, start within your friends, family, work environment, and or community. Be the motivation you want to see, bring in more inspiration, more creativity in your own world. Here is my impromptu idea for the week: Become your very own art star: Think of that moment, that moment when something you did effected ad individual and/ or people in a positive matter, and turn that moment into a creative project (painting, a song, poem, etc) and then share it. If you have not experienced that moment, then create a creative scenario where you can.
