It's been a while since I've done one of these.
1. Would you rather experience the loneliness of a loveless Valentines Day, if you felt it aided in your art? Or is Valentines Day the sort of thing that feeds your art too much to be abolished for even one year?
I usually don't even know it's happening.
Do you have an understanding of what it means to be truly alone in the world as an essential ingredient in making a truthful and moving piece of art?
Be inspired by life forms, such as animals, people, or even plants, find inspiration in others. And then create alone.
Or create together. But this, I suppose, is not the subject of collaboration.
Do you like being in solitude as meditation to art or do you need the support and love of another?
Oh artists, we are so, so moody. We create lots of different things and lots of different feelings and pictures and love and music in so many different ways.
We can create with or without just about anything, or anyone. But I... I tend to crave solitude (because noisy siblings) but still have a desire for companionship.
But I, ultimately, draw alone.
Do you know a difference between sadness and solitude?
I'm almost suprised you'd ask me this. I am a female adolescent artist who has to put up with noisy siblings and the arch-nemisis of all women, PMS.
I crave solitude. Of course later, I'll crave companionship... but I still need my space.
As humans, we need to balance companionship and solitude. They both do us good, but unbalanced, they become stressful.
Too much 'socialisation' can create despondency, too much solitude can create despondency. Both inspire art, but happiness and sadness are two more things that need balance.
But it never hurts to tip the scales a bit on the happiness end.... Ahaha.
Oh! Also I made a Valentine dedicated to the love of tea. I'll post it someday.
Listening to: Wuthering Heights
Drinking: Tea...how I love tea.
