The Original Spark

“Love always brings difficulties, that is true, but the good side of it is that it gives energy.” Vincent Van Gogh
Why did you start painting?
Really think back to when you made the decision to paint. Was it something you always knew you wanted to do? An interest in your younger years? A "mid-life crisis?" Or maybe just something you thought would be a fun new venture?
Now, what do all of these things have in common? 🤔
Don't think too hard about this...there is a reason "strategic business move" isn't an option on that list.
Yes, it may be strategic for your business to learn to create painted works; however, you can know that it would help advance your business and still not make that decision.
You see, the connection lies in motivation. It is the spark that sets an artist's heart ablaze, and we don't all kindle the flame in the same artistic mediums.
But it is because of that spark that, even when the going gets tough, you keep pressing forward. Because when everything alines and you get in "the zone," it is like you have boundless energy, and that, my friend, is passion beyond comprehension. It takes a true connection to enter so deeply into an experience that you reach a state of flow.
So, when you are finding motivation lacking and like everything is piling up in the studio, remember why you started in the first place. Reignite that original spark and set your heart ablaze once more.
