Chasing the bird

I like to compare art-skills and talent to chasing a beautiful bird. The bird stays hidden very often, but if you put a lot of effort and patience into it, sometimes you will see the beautiful colourful little bird. This sensation of finally seeing the bird is so awesome, that you now try and catch the bird. But when you succeed, and put the bird in a cage, the bird will die. The only way to achieve this incredible feeling again, is to let the bird go, and start over, trying to find him again.

There is no golden rule, no shortcut, and no way to own the recipe to good art. It starts with a need to express yourself, and every single time, you have to start the journey, and try to spot the colourful bird, just to let it go again…
