Thoughts when I can't sleep: what is art?
How does one measure the value of art? Does an increase in demand compel the rise in value? Is value determined by the collective, or by the individual? If art is never seen, is it still a masterpiece? Who is to say that my art is any less than another's?
I'm not an artist. I have no real skill with a brush or pencil.
I'm not an artist. I couldn't name an artist other than DaVinci.
I'm not an artist. I can't analyse a piece to determine it's meaning.
I'm not an artist.
I can lose myself in dreams of other worlds.
I can influence emotions with the word choice.
I can create happiness, longing, curiosity, all with a mark of ink.
I can fall in love.
I am an artist.
