Why DO I create art?

About every 6 months this question re-emerges, and I try to answer it again.  WHY do I create art?
 Today I answer this way.

I hunger to create beauty, and I hunger to connect with you in that Beauty.

I love the beauty of trees emerging through the mist, the green of seaweed on the beach, the moss on ancient maples. There is magic there. I want to share that magic with you.

When I am immersed in that Beauty, I feel aligned with the Mystery of Creation.  My Joy and sense of Peace multiplies. Compassion grows. I want my every thought and word and act to express that Joy, and to nourish it in others.

 That is why I create art.

 I want to share that Joy with you.
That is why I show my art.
