You see the good stuff, what I think is worthy of making it onto the blog or into the shop. You don’t see the scratched out, never painted, crumpled, thrown away, dumped artworks. You don’t see the overly personal, written all over, super emotional pieces. But still, I only put up what I consider my best images. Although, it never fails, there are always images that I don’t consider important that are best sellers. Who knew?
Isn’t that how life is? Isn’t that what the great game is all about? What we hide as the real self, and what we let the world see and think is our true self. Life is one giant artwork that we try to paint for everyone else to see. But God knows the truth.
Now what I find very interesting about this whole concept is that a lot of times the things we are trying to hide the most are what endear others to us the most. The things that make us unique, that make us human, the special things we share, are what matter the most. When we put up all of our artwork of each day we gain the most.
I try to be pretty transparent on the blog. I feel like God is calling me to keep it real, to confess my limitations.
I think that is what brings some of you back. Or at least I hope that I help you see God in your life and the art in your life. I hope I make you see in a new perspective. Or at least open your eyes to your own perspective.
