Quote #42

42

The other day this thought/ quote went through my head.

My mind is a very curious thing. At times I don’t understand or know where the thoughts or ideas come from. They just kinda happen.

My goal as an artist is to create ideas and art so crazy that even myself questions my own ideas. To be so creative it could bring the unknown and unthought of. The imagination can take you quite far. Much out of this reality.

When drawing or in deep thought, my mind will tell me or give me ideas. I write them down instantly or draw a little sketch out in my mind or on some paper. So I don’t forget them, the mind is moving so fast it is easy to forget something.

Subconscious thoughts are the creative inside thoughts, being you in the end. The things that interest you. The things that make you happy. Things you’re curious towards.

Then there’s the conscious mind that is in contact with you at all times. This thing we call “the real world.” This mind is here all the time. Some might not be familiar with the term “subconscious.” I’ll try my best to simplify an example of what this word means.

The “Subconscious mind” is the mind you enter when you’re out of your body. Thinking about the things you shouldn’t be thinking about. We all do it, it’s just many don’t notice. Take some time to take a journey through that crazy mind of yours. All through those thoughts and dreams that you see. Swimming throughout your mind, entering all parts.

We all use out ‘subconscious minds” in different amounts. I happen to be an “Artist” so my time is spent thinking about crazy unrealistic things. If someone tells me “That is not realistic.” Then that makes me want to do it even more.

Art isn’t supposed to be realistic. Nothing is realistic.

Certain individuals can enter the subconscious easier than others. I’m not saying certain people are “better” than others. It’s just some think a lot more than others.

In the end, we can all create art, you just have to apply yourself. An art of being yourself and being happy. Art can apply to anything in the end. Being yourself is a form of art, you have to act everything you do every day. Without action, we would all be nothing but puppets or sticks with strings.

There’s this voice I hear or the maker of these ideas, I came up with a name.

I’d like to call this voice/ idea maker in my mind. The “Higher Self.” The self that usually doesn’t think. Most are engaged in all different things in this world. The brain is very fair and works with you, it can let you do anything you wish. It’s all up to the user of the brain. The soul or “energy” powering each individual.

Few times I forget my thoughts and sketches, I hate when that happens hahaha.

Here’s an example of “color”, I can share within my mind to make you question the everyday colors you see.

Here I sit typing this at this very moment. The computer I’m using is the color black. The mouse I’m using is red. The sweatshirt I’m wearing is purple. The banana sitting next to me is yellow.

What I’m trying to say is each “item” or “individual thing” has its own color. A color, but also a shape as well. When I tell you a word, usually you’ll think of a shape for that word. Some expression or emotion of some sort.

Each color represents a different emotion, shapes do to I guess. I would assume so in a way.

When I think of all of the colors, I usually think of fruits and veggies. I’ll name the colors and a fruit for each.

Red- Apple, pepper, tomato, cherry, strawberry.

Yellow- Banana, pepper, lemon, pineapple

Blue- blueberry, grapes, pomegranate

Green- kale, cucumber, pear, kiwi, peas, avocado

Orange- Pepper, orange, carrot, sweet potato.

Purple- Grapes, fig, plum

I eat a lot of these fruits and veggies. The rainbow has all these colors, it’s very interesting because all the colors we see around us are the colors of the rainbow. Vibrations and light create each individual color. Tones and tints can be added to each color to lighten or darken the color. The light on earth can do that too, it’s that powerful. Hahahaha.

The universe is an artist itself. Creating all the colors and shapes we see now. That produces a lot of energy each day. I might sound crazy to most individuals but what’s new. I have heard many opinions and words of others.

It just amazes me that each item has its own color and shape. Why does each item have its own color and why that color. Why not a different color or shape. I don’t understand hahaha. Yes, I’m very crazy and I accept that.

The reason why I’m thinking of colors to this degree is that of fruits and vegetables.

Each fruit has a color and each vegetable has a color. The colors found in fruits and vegetables are found in the world. This makes sense in my mind, hopefully, it does in another. If not, this is an interesting story that I shared.

My last thought. This is quite confusing, but I’ll try.

Paint, each paint has its own color. When you mix paint it changes color. So in that moment of time, does the light in the atmosphere bend to that color at that perfect time? Aligning the colors to whatever it becomes. In a sense messing with time itself.

Art lets you create a past, present, and future all in one.

In a way, this is the creation of life you can say. Each day the sun shines down and paints a beautiful array of color all across this beautiful earth. It’s not”our” earth no on posses anything. We all just put labels and such on things. In the end, all we possess is this soul and not even this body.

Being an artist you can imagine things most don’t. Similar to a lot of these words I’ve just said. All individuals are an artist, its just only a few express themselves to this world and most stay locked up inside instead.

Remember anything is possible don’t give up on your “dreams” create your dreams into this reality one way or another.

Giving up is for a coward, giving up is always the easiest, giving up takes less energy than any energy used at all. If all you can do is drag yourself, you drag yourself across the floor. Each step adds to the last, to fall down the steps is not wished upon. It’s only the ones who get back up that make it in this life.

Believe in yourself and have faith in yourself, or don’t even attempt at all. Go 110% or don’t even try at all. There is no need in wasting time if you do something you might as well go all the way, then half way or part of the way.

Here’s one last thought to mess with your “subconscious mind.”

“Imagine if you could control the colors and shapes of your reality. Everything that you see, you can create within your own hands. Anything is possible and all ideas can happen. Art is a perfect example of this. I literally can draw whatever shape or color I want. Creating my own reality, in the end, all within my hands. Nothing is here to stop you, but yourself and the negative thoughts, destroying your self-image.”

Finished the drawing last night.

Never really know what to say or explain after a drawing. I’ll do my best to explain this one.

At the beginning of creating this piece of art, like always, you never know what the final product will look like. You can have ideas and use your imagination.

But however, if you give up on something, nothing will be achieved. This drawing was quite fun to create in the process.

Before making a drawing I have no idea, or plan to what’s next to create. It kinda happens in the moment. I look through pictures and focus on certain things.

Looked through 100’s of pictures and usually there’s one that catches my eye.

This one caught my eye and I sketched this one. It’s as if the drawing lured me in and I didn’t choose the drawing. This life happens to you and everything is aligned in a way.

When using certain colors you feel certain emotions and in that moment of creating whatever piece you’re making. You feel those colors.

The colors in this drawing were calm and stress relieving. Feel a lot more relaxed and stress free after creating this, you get a beautiful feeling after creating a piece of artwork.

It sets you free in a way.

When creating art it’s similar to life being created, hahaha.

A way to explain my thoughts.

Hope you can enjoy this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Look at it and observe as you choose. The imagination creates and defines what you see. Also who you’re. We’ll all see something different.

This is a drawing of a zebra.

The guesses through the process of making this were all over the place like usual.

I enjoy confusing the audience at times, it makes you use your own ideas and imagination. Instead of me giving you the answer to my work, step back and look at it. Create your own ideas and thoughts, my ideas are neither correct or incorrect.

Enjoy the drawing as you please. Interpret the drawing into your own reality.

Everyone have a beautiful day!

Using this color scheme was a little different than what I’m used to. It was a little challenging using darker colors. Most of the tones are very similar or almost alike.

I only used a few colored pencils on this whole drawing. When I create the tone I just add white. I’ll try my best to explain. Lets say a “shape” is dark, ill grab what pencil I think is correct. Then add the amount of darkness I think is needed. Apply white over the dark area. Then add the darker color again. etc..

layer on layers.

Keep doing this till I’m satisfied with the results. Moving on to the next shape. one by one. A slow but steady process.

If the “shape” needs to be dull or light I add a tint of dark pencil and mostly white.

It’s similar to mixing paints in a way. Just using pencils. hopefully I did a good job of explaining that.

There were many guesses throughout the process of creating this, ranging from all over the place. If I could go through all the comments and gather them up, i bet you would imagine most of them in your head too. The fact you can see something means you’re using your imagination.

As always I never give away what’s going on in the drawing that’s for you to create in your mind. You create the story, all I do is create the picture. It takes nothing but a picture to think a thousand words. speechless but not.

This is a drawing of a Lion. I used black, gray and white colored pencils to create this. Interpret the picture as you imagine.

This is how far I got on Thursday. With having this color combination it’s a little tricky to fill in all the shapes.

The shades are different in every shape. No two colors the same next to each other. Maybe similar, but a different tone to create the picture.

I’m thinking I should finish this either tonight or early in the morning next time I draw. No tension put onto the paper or the art won’t create the way it’s suppose to. Take deep breaths and slowly over time each shape will be filled in.

A long game of patience, to be honest making art helps me with my everyday to day life. The patience it takes to create art you realise how important patience is. At times I feel like getting angry, but then I remember “patience” Dont give up.

With what I have colored in, what do you see so far? Has your previous guess changed from your last?

Progress on Drawing.

The colors on this are quite different than most of my past drawings. I’ll probably end up making another one like this. I’m not sure what I’m drawing next.

This is how far I have reached since Monday. I worked on this drawing for a while on Sunday as well. I’m doing the best I can with the colors to separate each section.

As of what I have right now, what do you see?

If you see something crazy, still comment and let me know.

Maybe you have already guessed, but now your guess is different.

For comparison.

Adding color now. (Black, Gray, White)

Iv’e been working on this quite quickly. It’s a little smaller than most of my pieces, but has a lot of little details.

The colors in this one are different than most drawings I’ve made. For some reason I feel like drawing a black, gray and white drawing. It brings out a different beauty to the eye.

These are the colors we would see if there was no light. Reality would be completely different. Appreciate the simple fact of colors.

If this were to be in bright colors and happy colors the energy of the picture would reverse. Maybe you look at this and feel different than you would if there was color.

Imagine a dark and gray, glommy world. All of the time. No sun or colors. It would be kind of depressing. But interesting on how humans would act towards each other.

With the color I have added, do you see any image? If so, what do you see?

No one is ever wrong or correct. Any guess is accepted.

Thank you for looking at my work.
