Art can free your soul

One of things I enjoy most about making art is how free and unhindered the creation can feel. I am not talking about when someone asks you to make something. I mean when you make something, anything, from within simply because you want to do it.

One of my biggest problems is feeling confident with the techniques involved. It is kind of like magic in that when I get in the zone, there is no aspect of time and, to be honest, no certain destination. If I was to say, I am going to make this exactly like this in a logical fashion, it would never happen. It is all too overwhelming for my logical side. All to often, I start something wondering if will ever turn out, and when it does, I am totally amazed not realizing how I got even got there. It is so weird. I love making art.
