“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” ~ Pablo Picasso
Are you person who has always had an artistic calling, yet you have never pursued your passion in earnest? You are not alone. There are many people, for various reasons, who have had to travel down other career paths feeling they have not fulfilled their God-given talents.
The book Unlocking the Heart of the Artist: Practical Guide to Fulfilling Your Creative Call as an Artist in the Kingdom speaks to this issue for the new generation of people who seek personal fulfillment as a priority in their lives. He invites others to live fully, doing what makes them happy, and to become “unstuck” by expressing themselves creatively.
The author, Matt Tommey, is a successful basket maker and art consultant from Asheville, North Carolina. His sensible messages to other artists, through his publications, helps clear the way of self-doubt by providing hope and insight to individuals who wish to thrive and become fulltime artists. His book Crafting your Brand: Simple Strategies for Cultivating a Successful Creative Career, is also a good resource for anyone who wants to pursue their calling.
A well-rounded artist, Matt Tommey, makes a living in a combination of ways, also offering workshops on the craft of basketry. To learn more about his workshops, how to order these publications and to see his website, http://bit.ly/1bpQhI9 .
Do return tomorrow for Film Friday, we will be featuring a film that is soon to be released that plays well into our recent topics of writing on All Things Fulfilling. This blog brought to you by www.CornerstoneFulfillmentService.com.
Wonderful quote from Picasso. I hope that Matt Tommey is successful in getting this message out deeply into general populations everywhere. It makes me sad when people tell me that they aren’t creative when their eyes tell me it is more fear of embarrassment than actual lack of creativity.
