The difference between a creative person and a creative producer

Here’s our special quote in honor of Labor Day: The difference between a creative person and a creative producer is hard work. Those who actually produce the play, build the rocket, find the cure, and write the novel don’t let their ideas collect dust on the “tomorrow’ shelf. They dig in, often before they feel completely ready, and keep digging until they unearth what they are searching for. It is the unglamorous, relentless, dirty-hands effort that eventually turns a drawing into a masterpiece and a melody into a concerto. When excellence is the goal, nothing else will do.

Art and Soul

Sharon Barnes Creativity, Soul Care Leave a Comment

Art making is my way of bringing soul back into my life. Soul is the place where the messiness of life is tolerated, where feelings animate the narration of life, where story exists. Soul is the place where I am replenished and can experience both gardens and graveyards. Art is my way of knowing who I am. Pat Allen
