I am sharing today one of my artist's blogs. Yes, I am claiming him as my artist. Here's the deal. What he paints touches my heart on so many levels. What I like about this post is he shares another artist that he admires but then talks about becoming his best self. I like the way he wrote this.
The way he wrote this really connected with my belief that I can admire the accomplishments, attributes, and behaviors of others without wanting to duplicate them.
Another one of my artists is NikonSniper.
He has a wonderful sense of humor and a belief in Christ that he is proud to share. His photographs are awesome. He is one of the few people that I know that takes more pictures in a day than I do. (Last Thursday I took over 400 pictures in the morning.)
Interesting thing about artists is that this is what they are not just what they do. I don't want to do the same thing as either one of them. I am becoming my own best self. The only disadvantage is I see all my own imperfections and looking at someone else from a far their imperfections are less noticeable. From photography, I have learned the value of point of view and perspective. Sometimes the person I am harshest too is myself. I am thinking about many others that I admire and see qualities that I want to include in myself. For me, the final test of something I want to include in myself, is this a quality I can imagine Christ having? You know, that covers almost every positive quality.
