When working on my artwork, I often think to myself, "I need to remember to share this idea with everyone." Funny how blogging pulls that out of you . . .
sharing techniques, ideas and inspiration.
Many artists are afraid to share "too much" or are constantly worried that others may copy their ideas. I find that I actually WANT others to create what I'm making ~ or if I've learned about something that works, it's so neat to pass that knowledge on.
Creativity is like the fishes and loaves story in the Bible . . . as you share your ideas, they feed other's creativity and then they are inspired. They in turn want to make something wonderful and as they share, their creativity continues to encourage others and so on. Don't you agree? And even if you create something that I've made, yours will be YOU . . . mine will be ME, as we all have our personal style and our artwork will always reflect that.
So don't ever hide your light, talent or ideas for fear of others "stealing" it away . . . go ahead, give it away and you will be inspired to always be creating something new and wonderful to share that will be uniquely "you" ~
