Why Do The Seasons Matter?

If you are artistic, chances are that you are sensitive. And if you are sensitive, chances are that the seasons can significantly influence your energy and your mood. And consequently, your thoughts and feelings. Even if you are so imaginative that you seem to be completely disconnected and independent from what is going on around you, you are at least a bit affected, in one way or another.

Art does not come out of nowhere. What we call artistic inspiration is often a mix of stimuli leading us to seek an outlet for it. And that stimuli might very well be the weather and temperature, along with what state nature within range is currently in. How it looks, sounds, smells, tastes, and touches us. As well as what it may represent to us.

Depending on where you live, you’ll experience the changing of the seasons to a lower or a higher degree. However, you can still amplify what they transmit by tuning into other places via media or appreciating artworks that have captured them in greater intensity and splendor. In my case, I don’t have the hottest summers nor the coldest winters, but I can still catch a few subtle differences between the seasons.

Maybe you have a favorite season or a season in which you are the most inspired to make art. But you can, regardless, harness and transmute to art what they all bring - so that you’re making art during and for all year round.
