I really enjoy and follow a fellow writer named Jeff Goins on social media. He just posted a quote on Facebook and I really wanted to put it out here for my reader’s to ponder.
“There’s nothing more intoxicating than creating something from nothing. Creating something from yourself.” ― Rainbow Rowell
I was wondering what you think about this…
- Is art intoxicating?
- Is it addicting?
- Is art a form of addiction?
- Are we as a society addicted to creating or do you believe people are moving away from this? It’s an interesting idea to consider since we have mass production and consumerism society now. Are we buying products instead of making them ourselves or even finding someone local to make it for us?
This also makes me think about a Facebook post another local artist I follow made this morning. She is having trouble with her artwork being posted on Pinterest. This doesn’t sound like much of a problem except they are removing her name from the piece of art and instead it is being attributed to different people. What about copyright laws and our ability to protect our artwork from being stolen?
