Our beliefs make us, reveal us, free us or imprison us. They are acquired or inspired. A belief is nothing more than a recurring thought! It’s a story that we tell about ourself or others.
As an artist, I have encountered beliefs. And often question my own... till they either fall flat and loose their relevance or reveal a truth that is beyond conditions or judgements.
If I believe that I love flowers and beauty around me... it remains invisible and unseen till others around me see what I paint and come to believe - after seeing my work - that I am an artist who paints flowers not some of the time, but all the time! They can conclude and believe that perhaps I love flowers... and so I paint them!
When we do what we do and express and manifest something that is visible to the naked eye... we paint a vision of a belief that we own!
