Title: Passion
Media: Mixed Media Painting
Artist: Sophia Elise

I was sent this email today be a very dear friend who simply said - "this reminds me of you" - after reading it I was felt very humbled ....

It has been said that art is a tryst, for in the joy of it maker and beholder meet. --Kojiro Tomita

Inspiration of the Day:
"Through a long series of coincidences, this 'art box' finds you. When I had to give a gift for my sister, I realized her two loves. Her first love was art, the joy of creative expression, the connection with a subtler force. In her high school graduation speech, she used a quote that summed up her perspective: an artist isn't a special kind of a person but every person is a special kind of an artist. Her second love was helping people, especially artists. To my little sis, art was always about giving, but she would sometimes doubt -- if an artist gives everything away, how do they survive? How will their spirits continue to soar? She sure is an innocent spirit. :)" What follows is an account of a touching act of anonymous kindness by a "happiness entrepreneur." [ more ]

Be The Change:
Support someone's creative expression today: listen to a song, share a notebook, encourage.
