Art Quote Monday- Creative Power and/or Talent?

"It would be a mistake to ascribe this creative power to an inborn talent. In art, the genuine creator is not just a gifted being, but a man who has succeeded in arranging for their appointed end, a complex of activities of which the work is the outcome. The artist begins with a vision- a creative operation requiring an effort. Creativity takes courage."

LOVE this by Matisse! "Creativity takes courage." It does... Every day courage to show up, to be, to do, to express. It's BIG! I used to get hung up on my own talent, or lack of. Now it is about power... claiming my personal power and courage. So of life is a creative express, we're all artists in some way. It's the courage to act that makes the difference, I think. Love your art quote Mondays, Shayla :o) Happy Week ((HUGS))
