Art has been more constructive than destructive for me. From a quantum level, actively creating continually offers a long-term emotional release. As I engage in the abstract I feel a stronger connection to a deeper level of my existence. From where I stand, the world of art has shown more intrinsic value than money and material possessions. Some days I can’t help but feel guilty when nothing creative was done or thought of. I’m sure fellow artist may agree when I say that stagnating or feeling creatively blocked is equivalent to running out of a road to travel on.
