Why creativity and art are even more important as we age

Reason#3 It Gives Me Reason to Hope

When you use your imagination, no matter what age, I believe you are creating hope even if you think you have none.

Paintings or any art created in despair that depicts an artist’s deepest pains, are still hopeful because by sharing there is a connection. And when there is a connection there is hope. It becomes something invisible that can cross the years and generations. Sometimes I think of myself as having an addiction, a gambling addition. Every time I paint I am gambling that it will be good, that it will touch someone.
