Talking with other artists and a musicians, we’ve all felt joy in the moment of creating something. We feel it when we present or share our muse with others. It’s a love affair with the outpouring of our soul. It glows brightly from within. And for some as it pours forth and is recognizable by others, our pleasure increases.
In the making of Art, Music, Theatre or Dance is the concept of Romance. For the artist, romance is experienced in the act of creation. A potter finds it in Zen like moments at a wheel. The glass blower feels it in the heat of the furnace, the metalsmythe in the rhythm of the hammer. The actor gets lost in the romance of a character.
And when we don’t feel it there’s a void …so we search…or revisit those memories…much like many of the readers of re-romance.com
So rare and wonderful, this concept of creating art as an act of romance, that experiencing it deserves recognition, a place of honor. It is a monumental event to be written in stone.
The creative process is an experience to be cherished and perhaps when shared, the romance is enhanced.
On these pages, I invite you to share your experience. What do you love about making music, creating a work of art? I am exploring the relationship, the “love affair” that artists and musicians have with their creating, exhibiting and performing for a series of articles I am developing for this blog. I am looking for short tales and stories from artists and musicians about their feelings and emotions regarding the creative spirit.
