A holiday always observed on January 31st of each year, Inspire Your Heart With Art Day is set aside for us to explore our own feelings, and how art of any medium affects our heart-strings – and heart.
Art of all types is embraced and appreciated for a variety of reasons – the beauty, the message, the technique – what does your heart tell you?
According to the website set aside for this day, “Of the broad spectrum of art created in the world, the pieces that move us to tears or cause us to burst out in joyous laughter remain with us for a life time. Whether we are touched through music or see into an artist soul through their work, art has the power to change us, to inspire our hearts.”
The day encourages all of us to get Inspired about art while exploring the many genres of art that inspire us individually. How will you celebrate this day – Perhaps by a visit to an art gallery, reading a good book, music appreciation, Ballet and theatrical arts, starting that masterpiece you’ve been putting off – or what we do everyday – Share our art with others here on Etsy?
Looking forward to your thoughts and comments.
I definitely will be reading a good book – which could be one of the many beautiful coffee table books I have on my favorite artists! I am continually inspired by great artists use of color, and strive to use color well in my enamel work. This brooch was inspired by a photo of an artist friend of mine!
Well, this day happens to be our wedding anniversary, so I like to make a hand-made card for my husband. This card is fitting in so many ways. Mixed-media hand cut candles and flames add warmth to a dark winter day. This signifies the steadfast light and love in our marriage. Making a wish and blowing out the candles so many years ago has produced my dream come true.
I will make a trip to my local art museum. I love wandering around the contemporary art section; it’s such a constant source of inspiration. Hopefully, some of that inspiration will then be funneled into some new work of my own.
I am inspired everyday by the colors of my palette and will most likely enjoy this day by painting an artistic owl.
Thank you all this time around! Please watch for more #EtsyCIJ threads to share you thoughts and items.
