"Everyone should practise an art form because no matter how good or bad, it will enrich the soul.'  Kurt Vonnegut


Punter: "I wish I could paint too."  

Maiia: "Go for your Life. Here's a brush.   Pick a colour, any colour."


Which folk will say - 'Oh No not Me - I can't.' - is impossible to predict. Some will take the brush, grin and do a stick figure waving from the top of the hill.  And being Cairns maybe a swastika and think that's funny.  


Abraham Maslow originator of the HIERARCHY OF HUMAN NEEDS.  Introduced the word personality as it relates to ego.  Maslow describes self-actualization as a person's need to be and do that which the person was "born to do."   


Many will tell the story they made up I CAN'T because  "I haven't got enough money, time, brains, talent, verbal dexterity, looks, physique, education, confidence, social status." et cetera.  On the other hand validation and peer recognition are genuine human needs as so is the fear of ridicule and rejection a genuine experience. Stage fright is an obvious example.  JUDGELESS EVALUATION  


The burly seemingly brainless bully may have a soft spot for an articulate turn of phrase, a love of the dignity and solidity of brilliant words - well delivered.  Arts may sound a call to paint a picture of Life more real than circumstance.  Some people are fascinated with sound, rhythm and patterns. The Mythic Call




 "To tell you the truth I've met alcoholics, junkies and crackheads with more talent than ten gallery workers put together."
