During my study of Chinese ink painting the style of my work has gone through many stages. This work is slightly early on. I expected my brushwork to be more free and less details. Though the change in style was a challenge for the painter, but I honored my heart, which led to a more modern style. So no challenge, no change.
NO CHALLENGE, NO CHANGE! ❤️
Firstly, I am proud of you for taking up the challenge to become an artist. As human beings in society, we are trained from an early age to adapt to society. The TV advertising and media programmed our needs. Most of us then make it their goals in life to continually improve their comfort, a good job means a good position, a good salary, the possibility to buy a bigger house, make new interior decoration, own luxury cars… This material desire is endless, and the pleasure of satisfaction is only short-lived. Very few people accept the challenges of society, follow their hearts and make spiritual enlightenment the goal of their lives, which is why monks and artists are the proud community of humanity.
Secondly, I am proud of you for keeping accepting the challenge to achieve your art style you have now. The path of spiritual practice also constantly presents many challenges. It is a way of pushing our limits, learning new skills, and bringing us endless happiness. Also, I want to feel proud of those who are taking on life’s challenges right now. Whether you are facing illness and debt, or experiencing separation and misunderstanding, please approach it with a positive attitude, show up with the right energy to anything you have to handle. Understand the situation, forgive the people. Appreciate that the challenges are opportunities to make you stronger and wiser.
So take to the change, become who you are, lead to the true purpose of life. Friend, remember please, NO CHALLENGE, NO CHANGE!
With much gratitude and love Yue ❤️xx
