4115: Ouroboros

Every Sunday, a group of friends, artists, get together in discord to chat about art and life.
Recently in this group, we decided to start a challenge every month. And this month the challenge is to create a painting from a song.

Today was the first day I started working on it and it was all about idea generation and the first thing I did was go to my Deezer app and begin playing all of my favorite songs on shuffle.

One song hit me.

At first I couldn’t discern why I was so drawn to this song and why I kept listening to it on repeat over and over again. But eventually, I had an epiphany.. A vision in my mind and visuals that match the feeling that I have when listening to it.

This has got to be one of the most motivating things that I have discovered recently. Getting so deep into the idea of the work that it powers the drive and motivation and energy for the work from the beginning all the way till the end. I can’t tell you how important it is to spend the time it takes to deepen your understanding of yourself, what you love, what you hate and all the esoteric stuff that you could never explain to anyone else that is you. This is where your style lies. Where your true art lies and where a wellspring of motivation originates that can be almost infinite.
