The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.

Aristotle

Art is the stored honey of the human soul, gathered on wings of misery and travail.

Theodore Dreiser

 


“Creativity takes courage. ”
― Henri Matisse

The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.

Pablo Picasso

 

My art is very personal to me.

It feels like a risk every time I post images such as these.

It’s easy to post what you think everyone wants to see, but that goes against what my soul is screaming out and begging me to create.

I’d like to thank my dear friend Dan from DTB Photography for helping make my vision come true in these images.

I knew what I wanted. I knew I needed help, and I knew he could help me pull it off.

Dan has his own vision and art that he captures so naturally. He has a love for New Jersey and it really shows in his images.

You can find his FB page HERE and his post for this month HERE.

The Creativity Project has truly been receiving some amazing submissions lately. I am really excited to see what {Art} you will all create & share on our FaceBook Page.

Thank you for taking the time to visit!

~xoxo

    My favorites are the ones of you kneeling. I must ask…was it fun taking these and playing in the mud? I love the simplistic beauty of them :)ReplyCancel

    i believe that true art takes risks because its asks of the artist to expose parts of themselves to uncertain and fickle world. these are stunning. the earth, both, pure and ethereal in it’s make-up is art itself. combing the beauty of life within it…is magic…and you captured it beautifully.ReplyCancel
