Nature and the Urge to Create

DSCF2651

Questioning
I have been struggling lately with the idea of using paper and other supplies to create my art. I have a strong connection to trees and can’t bare the thought of watching one get cut down.  This feeling has become overwhelming recently and has sent me into a spiral of questions: “Is my art really important to express, Can I express it in another way? One that is more in line with nature than towards the destruction of it?”

 

An Idea
I think the reason I was originally drawn to Nature art was because sticks and leaves were my mediums and grass or sidewalks were my canvas. Where ever I leave my work of art is almost the same as nature dropping it off for other life forms. Maybe this is a calling for me to return to my older ways 😉 .

Have you ever experienced the thought of “Is my art important or sustainable?”
