I love Street Art Utopia.
I especially love their motto “We declare the world as our canvas”.
What an awesome medium! The creativity and talents of many artists make up this site. Their work is inspiring, thought provoking and challenging.
Sometimes it just makes me giggle.
I started to think about the coming year and what it would bring and what might my canvas be?
A blank canvas of this kind is both thrilling and terrifying to me. The possibilities are endless, the completion immensely gratifying but it’s the process that thrills me.
There are so many blank canvases to choose from.
Do they thrill you? Terrify you? Challenge you?
Madeleine L’Engle said it best:
Obedience is an unpopular word nowadays, but the artist must be obedient to the work, whether it be a symphony, a painting, or a story for a small child. I believe that each work of art, whether it is a work of great genius, or something very small, comes to the artist and says, “Here I am. Enflesh me. Give birth to me.” And the artist either says, “My soul doth magnify the Lord,” and willingly becomes the bearer of the work, or refuses; but the obedient response is not necessarily a conscious one, and not everyone has the humble, courageous obedience of Mary.
May 2013 be a rewarding, challenging and awe inspiring canvas for you.
