My son asked me if art was still art if no-one else sees it, (does the tree falling in the forest make a sound if no-one is there to hear it?). Profound questions!
To make art is to share ideas, dreams, emotions and stories – the narratives of one’s life. If no-one but the artist ever sees it is the image simply artistic masturbation – a satisfying relief for the artist but a lonely and isolated pursuit? Sharing one’s art and sending it out into the world is always exciting and a little scary, evoking emotions similar to when one’s children leave home.
So, here I am, beginning a new adventure; claiming my small camp site in a vast cyber scape. I arrive barefoot with nothing but my two passions: art and writing, and a beginner’s mind.
