Rhythms and Colors
“A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.”
When the first time I have read this quotation, it seems to be true. Why? What could be the reason that made it true? Ah, as I keep thinking my past, I remember the time when I was a young boy.
When ever I saw beautiful pictures, it is somewhat I am programmed to draw. My mind is automatically controlling my body to draw. It is because I have interest in drawing. But my drawings were always not that good. However, that failure inspired me to practice and eager to try harder as I can.
In all the times that I draw, I am thinking first on what strategy I should do. Then, I will use my imagination. Finally, I will draw based on what I think and what I feel.
Today, I am now a high school student. This is the time that my works are getting better, and as my life goes on, my works shall be the best.
All of these events in my life prove that the quotation written by Mr. Louis Nizer is true… the truth that will make the people aware on what does Arts contributes in our life.
