The imprint of your imagination

The mind is a powerful thing.   This makes our imagination just as powerful.   Sure we may daydream, get lost in our thoughts, think on things but the product of our thoughts and our imagination is what allows for an imprint to be conveyed.

As an artist, creator, designer, innovator, explorer; it is the imagination that gives us the power to pursue our goals; thus combined with the talent to transform those thoughts into real time is even more powerful.  It is a good thing to be able to dive into the depths of your imagination and harness those thoughts; it is an even better thing to be able to know how to convey those images or thoughts with a medium of choice.

Combining the strength of your mind and having the ambition and/or strength to scream those thoughts out via various forms to make an imprint is rewarding and at times, can be difficult.   There are times that things just won’t align.   Syncopation may occur; as we know there is rhythm in everything.  There is movement.   Take a look at a piece of artwork or an sculpture; your eyes will travel, there is a focal point but there is that movement that brings you there.  Piet Mondrian.  He believed in the rhythm of art.  He took notice of color placement, shapes; the way they would affect your view of an overall piece.   It’s true.   At times syncing our thoughts to our hands can be difficult, the slightest of change in positioning can ultimately change the thought that you are trying to replicate.

What do we do? We adjust.  That adjustment of that variable has now become something different, it has brought a different piece of life.  Now our thoughts are moving elsewhere and fast.  Developing. Analyzing.  Observing. Translating. Understanding. This piece that was born in our imagination—it is continuing to grow in our mind. Changing rapidly.  Becoming bigger.  More brilliant.   Building. Building.  Consuming.  Generating.  Use this color instead of this.  Put this line here.   Change this font.  Rotate this.  Drop this brush stroke here.  Round that corner more.  Apply more heat.  What if I were to add another layer?  It continues,  this mind of ours, that gives us this imagination of ours—well that is where our imprint comes from. This is where our masterpieces are born.  Feed your mind, give it more to think on.   Continue to absorb information, at some point all that info you have there…..will connect and allow you to create bigger and better things, more than you can imagine at this moment.

Think about that.  At this moment, you cannot imagine further than you have without growth; our imaginations grow as we grow. Expose your mind, witness, learn, read, play, continue this on repeat.  Most of all be brave, explore the depths, you never know what you may produce.  

Be confident.  Observe.  Listen.  Understand. Create. Grow.  Continue to grow………never stop growing.  Let your imagination take you.
