I can’t even!!!
Works of art like this are not only humbling beyond words, they are an ever-present reminder to follow our dreams.
Even now, as I sort through a rediscovery of my purpose and passion, I am so grateful to connect with the unmistakable force of nature that compels us to create.
I am a huge fan of murals. I try to take pictures of murals where ever I go.
Murals are not only beautiful, they are a form of expression and they can also be a tool for (r)evolution.
If you are ever in Los Angeles, you can see some AMAZING murals and you should also check out SPARC (The Social and Public Art Resource Center) in Venice. Judith Baca is the founder of SPARC as well as a professor at UCLA. Here is just a brief article on what she has to say about art changing lives: PBS American Family.
I wish more artists (and when I say artist, I mean ALL people with an urge to create) would read stories like Judith’s. The urge to create can at times feel like a curse but it is a calling.
When we listen and respond, we participate not only in the transformation of our own souls but in the overall transformation of our community.
As always, I am wishing you the very best on your amazing journey. Thank you all for sharing mine!
