The spark is part of the artwork that gives it life. If you go into an atelier and look at a bunch of students work whom all painted the same still life, each and every artwork will be different. There is one that will stand out from the rest, that is the spark. The spark is their own personality into the painting. And their personality comes through loud and clear. Type in Apple Painting into Google images. Look at the people’s artwork, you will see the ones with spark and the ones without. Every artist no matter what has a voice, but some artists scream louder. The quality of the art is confident, bold and unique in its own right.
The spark comes from within the artist’s soul. It is the confidence of knowing and accepting oneself. The artist quiets their conscious chatter, and lets their inner voice guide them without judgment or anxiety.
