What is it that motivates us to "MAKE ART"? & taking the question further, "WHAT IS ART? Well, I do not intend to get into a discussion of the definition RIGHT NOW of "what is ART", I'd be most happy to at another posting if I can get enough comments from my readers. So, PLEASE, if you will make comments as to what YOUR DEFINITION OF ART IS... then we can get an honest discussion going here on the BLOG. So, starting with the simple premise that ANYTHING CREATED AUTHENTICALLY WITH 'REAL' & SINCERE INTENTION OF PERSONAL EXPRESSION is considered ART for the purposes of this posting.
Back to the initial question of "WHAT MOTIVATES US?"  When one feels like expressing oneself, one is motivated.  Very simple.  So, depending on what motivates YOU, find that "SOMETHING" & you have your thread!  It can be painting a portrait of someone you love, making an object for WHATEVER REASON.  Seeing something beautiful &/ or interesting & wanting to reproduce it to remember or show to others. Making a gift for someone.  Receiving a commission, (now there's a motivation for you)! So, whatever it is, find PERSONAL MOTIVATION FOR YOUR EXPRESSING YOURSELF, & VOILA, THERE IS YOUR THREAD!
A BIG THANK YOU TO MY READERS FROM ALL OF THE COUNTRIES.  PLEASE LET ME SEE YOUR COMMENTS....IN WHATEVER LANGUAGE! MY HUSBAND SPEAKS SEVEN, & OTHERWISE I WILL GET YOUR COMMENTS TRANSLATED. 
THANK YOU, RIVIAN
