Is art about finding the right canvas, vibrant colours, and perfect set of brushes?
Is it about the way the easel stands facing the light so you notice every stroke of paint, every dot and splash?
Is it about colouring within the lines, or having no lines at all?
Maybe it is about creating a new wonder everyday
Or about capturing wordless moments in a permanent frame.
Trapping beauty in timeless space?
Perhaps the purpose of art is to become a window for emotions-
Love, joy, sorrow, pain, rage
Struggle and relief, all hidden within.
Maybe it is the edge of madness, where logic makes no sense.
Whatever art means to you and me
One thing for sure is that when you truly put a bit of your soul in it
Another person comes along and finds a bit of their soul in it too.
Connecting them to you and the Universe
It makes them feel something they can’t put into words,
And discover something about their innermost selves.
Perhaps that is the ultimate purpose of art.
