Art Is Service – A Haiku

Art Is Service

my devotion seen
in every stroke upon white
canvas is to you

As an Artist, of any medium, the main object is to serve –
to serve the audience into experiencing a sensation, an emotion, or a perspective they might not have experienced before.
It is our duty as an Artist to evoke a spark, no matter in which form it manifests itself.
What is not our job, is to control which form this spark takes. It is not our job to make sure everyone has a positive reaction to our creation, nor should we attempt to.
Revel in the diversity of the reaction to your creations, enjoy the view points that are as unique as the observer, or listener, or reader. And in return, we the Artists get a new perspective on our creation as well.
