Salvador Dali


Throughout the process of this drawing, I was attempting to push myself past my limit of comfort.

My main focus was to make everything as abstract as possible.

The colors were a little mind-boggling to figure out, but I am up for any challenge.

Each piece should challenge you more than the last work of art.

Somehow I end up surprising myself each and every piece of art.

Sometimes I have no idea how I create what I create.

Everything happens within the moment of the moment.

Time and space are forgotten when creating art.

Through art, the soul is set free.

You forget you even have a body.

There are no rules in art.

Create as the soul wishes.

Art is the greatest way to teach yourself about life.

Through art, you learn patience and learn how to love.

You appreciate the moment more than ever.

The process of art is similar to the process of life.

Be diligent with everything you do.

A piece of art could take you a lifetime to “complete.”

Technically no piece of art is finished.

You just have to stop yourself from adding more to the piece.

Life is a never ending journey.

The moments in between life create the life we are living now.

Art is a process of small steps put together, creating “one whole moment.”

Art shows you the “answers” to life.

Through art, you nurture the soul.

Salvador Dali is an example of someone who is their true authentic self.

He was quite a “crazy man.”

Then again all “artists” are crazy.

When you step outside of the box and question yourself as well as your surroundings.

Then you realize everything makes sense, but nothing makes sense at the same time.

Life is just a hallucination perceived differently by each person.

The “artist” expresses themselves through their own reality.

Attempting their best to explain their thoughts that make them question everything.

To accept everything for how it is.

Is quite hard for the “free minded” person.

We are all “artists” most just forget to be themselves.

“Their true selves.”

Think freely instead of being told what to think.

No one is perfect in this world.

All we can do is become our greatest versions.

Each day holds infinite possibilities.

If you believe in yourself anything is possible.

Do not give up even when you feel weak.

It is the challenges and storms in life that help you become your greatest version

The negatives help you become your greatest version.

Showing you what is hidden behind the truth of reality.

The positive moments remind you how beautiful life is.

We need both the positives and negatives to live this life.

Everything is only seen as perceived.

Remember to keep on creating and to be your true self.

Vibe at your own frequency.

Do not let others drain you of your energy.

Be the light within the darkness.

Anything is possible if you believe within yourself.

Here are a few quotes I would like to share by Salvador Dali. I relate to what he says within each quote. I am sure many other individuals will as well.

-Mistakes are almost always of a sacred nature. Never try to correct them. On the contrary: rationalize them, understand them thoroughly. After that, it will be possible for you to sublimate them.

“What is important is to spread confusion, not eliminate it.”

-There is only one difference between a madman and me. The madman thinks he is sane. I know I am mad

-“I believe that the moment is near when
by a procedure of active paranoiac thought, it will be possible to systematize confusion and contribute to the total discrediting of the world of reality.”

“You have to systematically create confusion, it sets creativity free. Everything that is contradictory creates life”

-Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.

-“It is not necessary for the public to know whether I am joking or whether I am serious, just as it is not necessary for me to know it myself.”

-“A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others.”

-“The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant.”

There are many more quotes I could post that I can relate to. I will stop before I get too carried away.

Much love to all!

  1. I knew at once it to be Dali. Perhaps, we as artists are a bit crazy but creativity is that which certainly takes one away from the beaten path…so, to speak. I know that towards the end of his life as he got older, some of his ideas were untoward and people either really liked him or held him in disdain. But I admire him, nonetheless, for his determination to be himself….such as that might appear to people who followed his art. This has been beautifully rendered and your ability to create such art with not only shape and form but color is astounding for one so young. I commend you.

    • I think I remember you saying that or possibly you didn’t mention anything at all.

      Yes very true. Being an “artists” helps you be yourself. In the end, we are all an “artist.”

      Yeah, I’ve researched his artwork. It is out there for sure. Most don’t understand jahahha.

      He always seemed to have doubt in himself but he didn’t at the same time.

      Thank you! I appreciate your positive words.

      Thanks for the energy filled comment.

      Shows the extra effort put into the art.

  3. Wonderful!! This is stunning. I can get lost in staring at it because it’s fascinating to me what you do. I also enjoy how you can both draw and write. I don’t meet many who can do both well, but you can.

    “A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others.” – This is my favorite quote from him!

    • Happy to hear you like it! 😊

      If you zoom in on the drawing the shapes start to randomly turn into other pictures.

      Expressing myself the best I can with my heart and soul. Using nothing but love.

      I appreciate your love! ❤

      Yes, I enjoy that quote as well.

      Inspire others to live their greatest life.

      It takes others perspectives to show you what else is out there.

  4. “Sometimes I have no idea how I create what I create. Everything happens within the moment of the moment.”

    I think one has to create in order to appreciate this. The act of creation opens the mind to new possibilities that were not previously seen. I think life works like that, too. The act of living, daring, opening unexplored doors, makes us aware of a much greater creation.

    • I agree. One has to “art” to appreciate any form of art. I have met people who mock and despise art.

      Yes, there are infinite possibilities. Art helps us reveal that.

      Love your thoughts on this drawing.

      Your comment reminds me of the book “The doors of perception” by Aldous Huxley.

      Behind the door is the infinite.
