Regardless of age, situation or circumstance, the artistic quality shines through when an artist creates. How glorious to partake of the view from an artistic eye. How wonderful to enjoy the amazing beauty and fulsome imagination an artist presents.
Whether art be produced with pallet, brush and paint, by camera, music notes, the written word, or other creative rendering, an artist produces because he or she must and we the audience view their reflections of life because we equally must.
“To partake of beauty from the artistic soul
is to enhance our own awareness and understanding
of who we are and what we are capable!”
Penny L Howe, 2014
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’ve been being creative yourself (as all bloggers are inherently creative – I’ll take that as a given!) Remember to take time to take care of you! Your muse will thank you!

AnElephantCant claim to be artistic
He can’t paint and he can’t sing or dance
He writes the odd line
Which might almost rhyme
But he spends most of his life in a delightful wee trance
What an excellent poem, B. However I take exception – in that I believe you are amazingly talented! I’m thinking you wouldn’t want to argue with me on this one! xo
AnElephantCant argue with Penny
He knows it will just end in tears
She is awfully sweet
And not much more than 5 feet
But he remembers she is quite stunningly fierce!
A lovely and true quote Penny 🙂

Arrggghhh!!! Time is not my friend 😦 I click “like” and then about an hour later I manage to comment.
When someone writes either poetry, fiction, paints or draws, even the way some do needle thread, it says something about the person who did it. It comes from inside them to be brought to the fore and put down for all to see. It is amazing what we can see of people’s minds through their expression.
Is time anyone’s friend? I wonder? Perhaps, maybe sometimes, but in today’s world, mostly not I fear, Alastair. Thank you for your excellent comment, well stated, my friend! 🙂
Y0u’re welcome Penny 🙂 I do think that Time is on the rampage and making enemies on the way
Hey Lisa! Thank you my most excellent artistic friend. I hope all is well in your world! Do keep your love of people, all life, and beauty flowing – that which you do so very well! xx
