My life as an Artist

My life as an Artist keeps expanding me, and bringing me to “New Horizons”. There is always a “New Horizon” for the “Artist” and there are so many reasons why this is evident for me.    The Painting, that I have painted for myself keeps painting itself into a larger more beautiful scape.  This is the “Way of the Artist”.

There are many reasons why I feel that this is evident for not only myself as the Artist but for all in lieu of being an Artist.   The paintbrush keeps painting the painting, the Singer keeps singing the song, the Sculpture keeps sculpting the sculpture.  And each time, this Artists’  world expands.

As a child, on the beach, I was always looking to a new horizon…  Living as an artist from childhood, my first and “Primal” form of expression, a child spun into her imagination mostly, often found gazing at the “Starry Night Sky” in amazement and questioning its magnitude.  The Artist ~ questions everything.  In writing, in dance, in acting,  in singing, in playing the piano…questioning,  as my imagination was always expanding. The unknown pathway most times has been my safest place, sailboat sailing the seas of creativity to always take me safely to a new Creatively Inspired destination.

Another fascinating element I have discovered is, that the more I teach the more I learn.   The more I witness the passion, will, and desire in my students, their fiery passion young and old to attain more skills in achieving their creative ideas,  confirmation of my personal experience is shared.   

The creative “essence” is always available to us, we must recognize the presence of this energy, this place to begin.  In lieu of Art and Artistry, the abstract is lying dormant or active in the imagination.  Slowing time down can be a way in discovering what parts (elements)  exist,  then perhaps we can see what is there to develop, work on with tools.  Skills are acquired with recognizing the need for the application of new tools so that the craft, art form may develop!   As an Artist on my journey, there has been absolutely no way around working without tools which = technique.  

 No matter what the art form of what one’s playfield is… the parts of the piece (the process) matter more than the end result.  If we live in the spaces of each particle while creating,   then we can be equipped and ready to mold, build and play in this “Artform”.    If one takes the time, then time can slow down so that these steps can be taken and fine results will be achieved.  Allow space for your Creative Mind to explore the possibilities of the Gifts you have that might lay dormant.  We are all Artists, one has to be to live life…..so consider Living out Your Creative Expression, and Living it will bring you to meeting the ARTIST IN YOU!

The Joy that Singing Brings!

My “Joy of Singing” is apparent in my Daily Walk. Singing is and has been the “Door” to the “Healing Power” in my Life over the many years! “Singing is, I believe ~ the easiest way to Express ones Deepest Joy, + many other e-motions.” It has the power to “Transmute, and Transform” the Singer and the Audience as well!

I truly believe that “Singing” ~ the “Joy of Singing” is a Rich and Full experience ~ For the one “Singing”.
Singing a Song”. The Dancing of Tones, the Resonance of Tones in the Body Electric ~ your ability to sing in a structure, or simply improvising a story about your day ~ whatever ~ and however it may look it is all “A Weaving of Feelings in Words falling onto Sound Scapes”. “Tone Poems” if you will!

Let’s look at this together for a moment:
If you or a given person thought that you were supposed to “Sing the Song”, and there was a specific method to the “Madness or Mystery” of “Good Singing” that you felt not attainable, not reachable ~ then you must let go of that “restriction” ~ for it has nothing to do with You ~ please “Just Sing”! “Let Go ~ move your Body ~ find the Sounds that come ~ and Sing them. Begin with an Inhale and an Exhale, add Sound to the release and movement of your breath! “Hum your Song ~ then Sing Your Song ~ for it Is Your Song”. This is when you are sure you have Discovered “The Joy of Singing”!

The Good News is, “Singing” is not something we “Go and Do” it is a state of “Being” “Being in Song” “Becoming the Song”! Then, the “Song always Sings itself”…and it will surprise you and “Sing and Dance You all day long in and out of the Song, you are in the flow of Song”, much like the Sailboat set to Sail ~ Once it’s in the flow of Sailing ~ you are in the wind, one with the wind ~ You are “Sailing”!

Do remember the saying “When words Break into Song”? This Is very Key to look at. Words, they literally “Break” into Song! When one’s heart is so full of joy, sometimes sadness ~ and only “Singing that Song” whether it be in your car, in the shower ~ in a musical, vocal lesson, home performance, or at Carnegie Hall will make it all right, either for yourself only ~ or for you and the others you are Singing or Performing for!

“Words Break” into “Song” my friends…Words become Tones. For example; a 1 syllable word ~  the same word can become (break into) a 3 syllable word!  Have a closer listen ~ Consider the difference between Speaking and Singing, friends. Light up Your World with a “Gift of Song” and you will also experience and get to know “The Joy of Singing” and it’s Healing, Soothing, Regenerative, Caring, Loving power…For it is the “Love within Yourself” that will Allow you To Explore the “Joy of Singing”….

I am so glad to share this Joy with You. Jana
