Being an artist is an instant thing. It is not prepared nor waited. It is intrinsic. You may think that to be an artist is a long process of interminable endeavors. Some people believe that they can never become an artist when they are too busy with the constant pattern of life–work, school, duties, responsibilities. Some even think that they want to quit their jobs or end school to pursue their so-called “calling” as an artist.
You can be the best artist you can be in any situation. It will be about how you respond to every circumstance you come across in the daily events of life.
Art is flexible in its entire nature. It is described as “the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.” It’s not legalistic.
Remember that “being” and “becoming” are two different words. “Being” is a given thing while “becoming” is something that is earned or strived.
Here’s the point of the matter: “Artists are not forged. They are born.”
