Want to paint? Get inspired by looking at art. Creativity isn’t about doing something that has never been done. Creativity is about recombining already existing elements.
Bahá’ís believe that creativity exists in every one of us, not just famous composers or painters or writers.
- “Creativity is discovering our own special talents, daring to see things in original ways and find different means to solve problems.
- Creativity is being nimble enough to respond in positive and healthy ways when life surprises us.
- Creativity is what powers the imagination and finds new ways to make things work better.” bellaonline.com
Daru, my wonderful and talented friend created the above painting which I think rivals those of famous artists. She should put it up for auction!
Mark Rothko’s 1961 painting “Orange, Red, Yellow” (below) sold for $86.9 million at an auction of items from the estate of David Pincus. (Associated Press, May 8, 2012)
P.S. to Daru,
Start with a larger canvas to push the price up!!
