Art is a beautiful thing that can bring joy to our lives. From the musings of a master painter to the creative drawings of a child, art can bring us closer to ourselves and to each other.
For me, loving art has been a lifelong journey. As a small child, I would spend hours pouring over the pages of my mother’s art books and magazines. I was fascinated by the bold colours, intricate shapes, and how the forms seemed to come alive with movement.
As I got older, my love for art only grew. I would take classes, visit galleries, and spend time alone in my room sketching and painting. I found solace in the act of creating and a peace of mind in the depths of the canvas.
My art was never great; it was simply a reflection of my inner world. I painted abstract landscapes, surreal figures, and abstract shapes, each piece a representation of my thoughts and feelings at the time.
When I found myself in a dark place in my life, art was the one thing that kept me going. I would lose myself in the beauty of the colours and the movement of the brush and soon, I would find myself feeling brighter.
To this day, I still find myself captivated by art. I may not be the most talented artist, but I love the way it can bring joy and light into our lives. I love to explore different forms, colours, and mediums, and I love how art can be used to express the depths of our souls and our creativity. Art is an incredible gift, and I am grateful for it every day.
