This week’s theme for WQWWC is “heat”. I decided to go a little bit sideways and post about the heat from the soul, my inside heat that needs to come out in the form of creativity. Not sure if the word heat is the best, “fire” is more appropriate. For many years I’m using paintings and collages as a vessel for expression. Poetry is another form to let out what is in my mind. And of course, I couldn’t forget to mention the journaling practice that is a constant form of expression for me.
Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.Rumi
Abstraction is my favourite kind of expression, both for my painting and my poetry. Recently I had my poems featured in a poetry book, I’m quite pleased with myself, you can check it here.
The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.Ferdinand Foch
I always write about my feelings before starting any piece of art. I need to check what my soul needs at that moment, what is the fire, the energy igniting my creativity at that moment that I need to put out in the world.
Energy is the key to creativity. Energy is the key to life.William Shatner
The poem below is one of my favourites when I need to express my feelings through art.
In the heat of heat The heat is so hot My body takes control In the heat of heat The heat gets so hot My passion overloads James Harris III
