What is the one thing that inspires you to create art?


Everyone has their own reasons for creating. I wonder if there is a common thread that we artists all share. What causes us to desire to create?

    Yes, I agree that many things can inspire us. I'm wondering what makes us as artists respond to that inspiration in artistic expression. Is it a personality type, an attitude? I'm wondering what that inner voice is that drives us to create.

    Interesting, SidKemp. It sounds like your artistic expression is a response to the world. Do you ever find yourself in a "dry" period? If so, how do you rediscover the passion you obviously bring to your work?

    Well said! There is a lot to be said for just getting down to work. It's amazing what interesting directions we can take when "in the process." Pearl S. Buck had a famous quote about that. Thanks for your answer, chipped teacup.

    It's interesting that for you music is tied to your (I assume) visual art. I also like to "celebrate the everyday" in my art. I like to find the beauty in things that people often overlook. What kind of art do you do?

    I agree. There is something about the notion of achieving a sort of immortality through one's art.

    I love your answer! I think you've hit on a part of where all our inspiration comes from - the desire to view life from a higher plane - to see its beauty, to feel and express its pain. Thank you for your input.
