Keeping Up Mojo

Mojo

It’s very well-known that the public is all too often on that shaky ground of: what is art?

Then, there is the other side where the artist or painter must from time to time ask himself this same question. If not, then how can her art evolve. Art, after all, instructs at your pace—that is if you are willing to be present and not married to dogma.

Art is one way to freedom, which manifests itself in subtle, not gross, displays of what is unique—and when I write unique, I don’t mean pedestrian sensationalism; I do mean magic.

So, if the artist is to keep his mojo, he must earn it daily.
