Exploring Happiness #43- Work Of Art - Poem by June Stepansky

is my palette,
my sonnet, my novel,
which I can change
modify, edit,
hoping that it will,
in time,
reflect an
artist’s vision.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

When artists begin a creative work they must first have some vision of what they intend to achieve. When they have accomplished their work of art, they must then look at it again with a more critical eye to see what needs changing or adjusting in order to fully realize their artistic vision.

This method can also work for all of us. We can decide to review all aspects of our lives with an artist’s critical eye to see what needs changing or adjusting so that we too can achieve a more balanced and creatively satisfying life.

Life is raw material. We are artisans.
We can sculpt our existence into something beautiful,
or debase it into ugliness. It’s in our hands.
Cathy Better

I don’t want life to imitate art.
I want life to be art.
Carrie Fischer
