What do I see as art?
What are my strengths and weaknesses?
Can I really do this? Do I have what it takes to make these things come true?
'These are the questions that I had been pondering off lately. Things in which I took seriously.'
As I count my days here on this website I had witnessed numerous artworks and artists striving and perfecting their artistic techniques. From simple hand-drawn figures to those of complex products of art and editing I've seen the commitment of different people in their art. I was so amazed by them that in some point I came to mimic their works of art but failed miserably. From that moment, I asked myself is there a chance in which I could be as good as them? Do I have the skills and talent for it? Am I just here for the sake of gaining something other than fun itself? These questions echoed through my mind like sound resonating in the deepest parts of a cave.
I came to wonder and I came to reflect. ''People here are good for they know who they are and the things that they can do. They strive not because they want to be like others but instead they want to become more of themselves.''
Like a trickle of water in an empty bucket I suddenly jolted up with a surge of excitement. I came to realize that its not the art that makes the person but rather it is the person that makes the art. It is the person itself that decides the art in which he or she prefers and not the other way around. I've been a sort of fool for trying to copy others and not to look upon my very self the creative thoughts within me.
''You look unto others and admire them but not to copy them. You look within yourself and discover the artist within you.''
