What’s Original?

Sometimes I wonder if anything I have ever done is truly original. Inspiration comes from so many sources, from everything I’ve seen and read and experienced. Much of what I’ve written was inspired from God’s Word, both during my career as a writer and editor and ever since. Family, friends and even those who have criticized or hurt me, all are sources who inspire my writing. As for my painting, I’ve seen and been influenced by workshops and art in museums around the world by the finest artists. I’m thinking none of us create anything original. When it comes right down to it, we, and all those who came before us, paint, sculpt or write about what God created, not anything we created.

One thought on “What’s Original?

  1. Yet in the process God is teaching us to create, there is nothing wrong with putting your spin on something that has blessed you. Thanks Sheila, keep being you, you are one of a kind.
