I love art because it tells stories.
Art, whether it's a painting or music, really can evoke emotions and feelings. In my own wall art I try to capture nature’s themes that I find interesting; and learn how it inspires us to be better people.
“The world is but a canvas to our imagination" by Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) articulates the importance of the fact that we can paint our own lives to bring about fulfillment, happiness, and peace.
Through art, we can create anything we want. Even if it is just a painting, it will still have a positive impact on others because they can also be inspired by it.
Thoreau's quote about the world being a canvas is one of my favourites. I love that it has layers of meaning and applies to imagination, art appreciation, and creativity in general.
To me, Thoreau's quote means that the world is a canvas that is waiting for us to paint on or literally, leave a mark on.
The quote explains how the world is filled with unlimited and endless possibilities and opportunities for all of us to pursue. Creativity and art are similar to the meaning of this quote as they both suggest imagination and wonder.
Artists, like Thoreau and others have always been inspired by the world around them. As artists we are "painters" of our own world in many ways. We create drawings and paintings from our thoughts - we create stories from our imaginations. The world is but a canvas to our imagination.
Artists and people who are creative are in my view a special breed. Artists have the ability to see things that not everyone does, and their imaginations are never ending.
My artwork is a part of my story and passion, which is available as framed canvas prints, framed prints for the living room, kitchen, dining room, or any room. I derive huge satisfaction that my imagination of the natural world is placed on canvas for all to enjoy!
