Have you ever wondered why creative people always seem to attract the 'cool' label? It's not so much about their art, no matter how famous or skilled. The cool factor stems from the fact that when you embrace creativity, you welcome inspiration and uniqueness into your life. That's a quality everyone can feel, because it offers an outlet for expression.
Creativity has a lot more to do with self-expression, than it does with producing fine art. That means there are no rules. It's an area where your imagination knows no limits and you can leap over boundaries of the mind.
For example, if you've always wanted to try painting, but struggle to draw stick figures, simply forget the two are related. Get an easel, your favorite colored paints and just put brush to canvas. That's it, you're creating! Until you give it a go, you won't know what's beneath your fear of trying.
Most likely, it's a spark of genius in an artist pursuit, all of your own.
