Artists are honest people.
They are honest with themselves. Because of their honesty, they express their true self. They don't hold back. They pour it all out, even the weirdest of quirks. And those quirks shine like diamonds. Their honesty with themselves turns them into ideals, the fact that something so easy and logical, has become hard to attain in our society!
It takes real balls to stand out from the crowd. Alone. Cold. Being honest to ourselves.
Yet, it's so easy, if you think. What's stopping you from expressing what you think, and to extend that to who you really are?
Because it's so practically difficult but logically easy there are many people who are artists; people of all kinds, like actors, entrepreneurs, philosophers, homemakers, engineers, sportspeople, etc.
