The Artist Satisfaction

A continuation from the title- Unfinished Tales; chapter 3. It’s a sporadic/dynamic self expressive art in acrylic, cartons, hardboards on canvas. As I finish this work of art I spent time, days to enjoy every part of the painting.
Then I begin to analyze the joy, fulfillment, satisfaction, exhilaration that runs through the mind of the artist as he convert his imaginations to reality. The joy begins from when the concept is conceive till the finishing of the art. A genius work art is an expression of the artist joy and satisfaction.

THE MIND’S PORTFOLIO: Mixed-media Abstract Piece.

Being talented is inborn, being passionate about your talent or abilities is a decision. Developing, stretching your talent till it expound beyond normalcy it’s a concrete and life time decision which you have to contend and uphold with patience, consistency and dynamism.
For one to resolve to be and live as an artist is problematic. He wrestles with mental and physical issues like- acceptance, rejection, funding, originality, meeting basic needs……… Many artist give up and loss faith as they contend with the issues of being and living an artist.
I believe in the capability of passion, the inner feelings of satisfaction amidst forces that contend with being an artist, it fuels the inner strength. In all i take solace in the endowed portfolio of finished ,and unfinished paintings in my mind. I mentally visualize them hoping to bring them to my reality.
The above Mixed-media Abstract Piece is one of my reality from the mind’s portfolio. What you see, feel or imagine in the painting is your own title and definition.

Abstract African Painting: HEAD IN SERIES I.

Every brush stroke,
Every sketch,
Every display of colours,
Every figure or non-figurative expression,
It’s less than 30% of the artist imagination or ability.
Time, space, resources, inevitabilities & the artist himself…..
Are factors that stand against their prolific, flawless & dynamic creativity.
Anytime i create something new it gives birth to chains of ideas waiting to be explore.
I pray to my creator to give me the strength & privilege to express my dexterity in totality.
The above abstract painting is titled- Head in Series I. It is my first art on canvas this year, inspired by my wearable African art- Gidigba Label.
