Regardless of the human tendency of enjoying the finished artworks but turning a blind eye to the process of art creation, the process of creating an artwork is equally pleasing.
Listening and being listened, we crave both. The colloquial interaction as such is where the beauty lies.
Like a plant that feels the subtle changes of weather and soil, an artist does the same. He feels and extracts nutriment from the surroundings - history and cultural environment - until he and the destiny coalesces into one.
As always I keep a watchful eye on the things around me, full of curiosity and with the belief that every human being in this constantly changing world is blessed, for we are experiencing every moment of the life.
