Art is an expression of one's inner self and perception of the world around us. Whether it is photographic or hand created, it represents our own view of things we notice or feel important to us.
As I enter this new year, I hope to explore the creative side that hides within me to see if I can produce something artistic that will be memorable and last the test of time. There are many artists out there that far surpass me in creativity and artistic expression, but I am not trying to compete with them for recognition or position. I feel everyone has their own talents and uniqueness which appeal to some and not to others. Not all people are the same, they differ in many ways especially in their talents, abilities, and interests. No, my work is a creation of myself and what I deem as worthy of exposure from my perspective and if it appeals to others then I hope they appreciate it and remember it for what inspiration or beauty they may have seen in it. Time on this earth is short in comparison to everything else, so I would like to make the most of what time I have left and pursue those things that have meaning to me even if no one else understands why.
