|Coleen's Calling Birds #17|
Here are 4 perfectly good reasons to make art:
- Make art to escape. When you make art you leave the reality of everyday life. Time passes unnoticed and you enter a zone of creative consciousness away from the rest of the world.
- Make art to create something of beauty. It never hurts to add something beautiful to the world whether a garden, tasty meal, or bright quilt top. We all need loveliness in our life.
- Make art to express yourself. Tell the world about your hopes or fears or appreciation of life. Like writing a journal, quilts tell your stories in cloth.
- Make art to enrich your life. It doesn't matter what you make. The act of creating leads to discoveries about life that are well worth the journey. Enjoy the process!
