28 Images Reveal The Truth About Being an ARTIST!
I am not an artist. How many of us say that? Maybe, just maybe, you’re wrong!
Let’s say you’ve never had a piano lesson in your whole life. And someone comes along and asks you to sit down at the piano and play a Mozart concerto. When you aren’t able to do it, you say, ‘Well, I’m not a musician.’
What you really mean to say is, you’re not trained as a musician. You’ve never studied piano, or learned to read music or put in the hours of practice needed to become a musician.
And the same is true of art!
How many times have you heard someone say, ‘I can’t even draw a straight line’? Guess what! Art isn’t about straight lines. And how could you expect to become an artist if you never draw, or study or practice?
