Dear, deviantart fellow artists,

In this world, when there are more than 7 billion people (aproximately 7,226,225,900 as I'm writing this), It's easy to feel lonely. As everyone rushes to live their lives, to deal with problems and make decisions - we tend to isolate ourselves, stay indoors and wait for things to happen. But the most lovely things tend to be out of our comfort zone. 

As for myself - I'm really a shy, introverted person and I won't talk If I don't necessary have to. (Always sketching something, being quiet with headphones on my ears).  That's why It's easier for me to put my thoughts in written words, photography, art - social media has been a lovely thing for that. As I started to write a blog few years ago, made an account here -in dA, tumblr, things have changed a lot - I realised that there are so many passionate people out there - whether It's art, music or tv series - It's incredibly inspiring. Writing comments, starting conversations, sharing insights - it all matters. 

There are so many great ways to avoid loneliness, when you are, for example, painting something. There are livestreams that allow other people to see how you work, or you can watch others making art and chat with them, ask some questions. 
livestreamstatuslist.appspot.c… is a great source for that & it shows when certain artists are online. Also there are so many videos on youtube, podcasts/audiobooks/interviews to listen. And so many museums, libraries to visit and books to read. ^^

File:Nighthawks by Edward Hopper 1942.jpg

I always have adored this quite known artwork - Nighthawks - It's an oil on canvas painting by Edward Hopper. It reminds me so much of loneliness and the author has said that, he, "unconsciously, probably, was painting the loneliness of a large city."

Sometimes solitude can be good for us too. Doing things at our own pace, not distracted by things that are around. It's important to maintain the right balance. The main thing is that sometimes we feel alone and we feel like no-one understands or cares about us. 

But you should know. You are not alone. 

So, how about you - what are your thoughts on loneliness? 

I recently discovered this lovely article -… "The Key to Getting Motivated: Give Up" by Oliver Burkeman, where he explains why trying to “get motivated” can often make matters worse and gives some useful tips on that/ there is a website - and there are plenty of high quality screenshots from movies - "Cinemasquid"… - helpful for learning composition, colour schemes and light, also there is a Chrome app that allows to block certain websites for certain time - Citrus and it's useful to avoid disctrations (aka tumblr) when you need to get things done :)…   & some random gifs from tumblr :) 


P.S. I quite frequently post some sketches and artworks in my art tumblr - and I have a weekly Music Sunday post on  :) (Smile) (It's 100th post this week :party: )

Have a wonderful week! :) (Smile)
