"Grown" | Self-Portrait
Artists are a rare breed. To those who don't understand us we can look foolish, idealistic, stubborn, and even narcististic. But those who DO appreciate us realize that it's because while all of us have crazy experiences, there are only some of us who sit there processing it like clay until it becomes something beautiful and shareable. I don't always agree with every artist's "content". I sometimes wish to God they wouldn't have such a high platform to spread certain messages. But this post isn't going into all of that. It's focused on the soul of an artist, and their uncontainable need to process, shape and express things that they've experienced. And for that level of honesty and artistry, I'm grateful.
