No matter what level your expertise, the various techniques you apply, size, scope or method of your artistic expression, know that what you create, no matter how small and seemingly insignificant, can change the world.
What you possess in your imagination, once brought forth, is sure to touch someone, somewhere, in their most visceral, vulnerable and deep place, affecting them in a uniquely personal and individual way. That’s what art and craft does.
As a creative human being, it’s not up to you to create what you think are monumental works of art. It’s not your worry to wonder if your art will be loved and revered by the masses. It’s none of your business where or how your work is processed by others, or if it will last through the ages. It’s only important that you create, true to your vision, and share your talent with the universe.
No artist can ever be promised greatness. But just by creating your art, you have given something to the world that only you can give. You will leave behind a piece of yourself, your creative DNA if you will, that no other artist or creative can compare to.
