Art opens a window into human expression at its most intense, both raw/refined, and at its most non-linear (good contrast to enrich my usual business environment). Sharing your art with the world is one of the most radical ways of showing up authentically. And experiencing this is the best encouragement to reciprocate and to invite others along.
Living authentically then becomes an imaginary conversation between the artist, myself and the world. The art reaches out, I look, listen and feel and then share something back that got touched by this. Not just when it comes to art, I increasingly find this to work pretty well in dialogue with other trusted fellow travellers as well (crayons optional).
What are your experiences with art? How can you use this as part of your self-reflection and expression?
