Post The Gathering of Artists Thread

Hi,

There are all kinds of art in the world. Cooking is an art. Drawing, painting, sculpting, photography, photo editing... Sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, beadwork, leatherwork, weaving, flower arranging, interior design, costume design, design in general... Writing, composing, playing an instrument, dancing... Everything from architecture to martial arts and beyond.

So my theory is that, in some small way, probably most everyone on the planet is some kind of artist. And this humble little thread can be a gathering place for us. Because being around art tends to help inspire art. So if you want to share or plug/link to your own creations - please do. If you're stuck and need someone to brainstorm with, maybe we can help. Want to talk about your teachers and what inspires you? That's be great!

What does art mean to you? What's your muse? What's your medium?

Look forward to hopefully seeing this thread grow.

Courage & Peace

Wanted to link to this collection of writing tips: http://www.wherethemapends.com/writerstools/writers_tools_pages/tip_of_the_week.htm

Yes, it's put up by a christian publisher but they're a generally useful reference regardless of the faith of the writer.

Also, some writers find it useful to be aware of: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HomePage

Because it can be helpful to be aware of the 'rules' before you attempt to bend and twist them.

Edit: Found some more writing tips and figured that I might as well keep these links together. This site aims to help teen writers specifically but again, the tips can be a handy reference for persons of any age.

... Hrm. Interesting. True, many artists do consider their faith to be a source of inspiration. Also true, even artists who don't have, want or need religion do consider nature to be inspiring.

Did you make the video, Halo?

Courage & Peace

No, I can't take credit for it. I wish I could tho because I think it is simply beautiful. I think the maker of the slide show did a wonderful job of showing that God is the artist, and giving us a glimpse into everything He has created without having to say so. It speaks for itself, and that's what made it so moving to me.

... It always kind of surprises me, the ease with which people can associate a gender to their idea of the divine.

Also, I am reminded of peoples willingness to overlook circular logic. Most religions are in a rush to give god credit for everything which exists in nature - good, bad and inbetween. But what created god? If god is, in any way at all, a product of the collective human imagination... Then isn't humankind also entitled to take some of the credit for the beauty which exists in nature? *shrugs* Agree or disagree as you choose, of course but this is perhaps worthy of consideration.

Moving on...

This picture made me laugh. So well thought out. Love the irony.

And stumbled across this a while ago but thought I'd share the link, hope someone else enjoys it.
