We are each our own art gallery.
Throughout the course of our day, many people will walk right by us, unaware or uninterested in what is being shown. Other visitors will be drawn to come in and experience our art. Some, not comprehending, will give it the cursory once-over and move on. Some will examine it with delight and wonder, and move on for other reasons–they feel can’t afford it or don’t deserve it or it doesn’t fit into their decor. Some will be so moved by our art that they will want to incorporate it into their lives.
Aren’t those the patrons, the collectors we want around us? Why not exhibit our most original work?
Each of us is the curator of our own life. It’s important to be authentic and show our “art” as it truly is, as it evolves. Our art will be beautiful, it will be boring, it will be sad and painful, and it will be mysterious. The important thing–no matter what–is to keep making our art, and keep putting it on display in the gallery of our lives.
