To Remain An Artist



Pablo Picasso once said “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”… I think that what he meant by that or at least my interpretation of that is that children grab a crayon or whatever and just start drawing…they don’t seem to worry much about perspective or coloring inside the lines…it’s the pure artist within them that comes out…when we grow up we are taught rules and are expected to follow them…we conform and as a result, we lose our individual identities…it’s like a giant funnel…we are a child when we are at the top and we have the most room…by the time we get to the bottom of the funnel, we no longer have much wiggle room…there are only a few that stay at the top and create, purely create.
