So, I have this vague aspiration that involves creating art that is display-worthy, and also encompasses certain interests of mine. Basically, I really enjoy quotes, and would love to create artistic pieces that combine simple images with phrases or sayings that really move me.
For instance, one amorphous idea I was inspired by a Buddhist quote I read that said, “Let us meet in the place where there is no ego.” I would love to make a piece of art with some kind of nature image along with that quote artfully presented. Another idea I had was a picture encompassing the profiles of both J. Nehru and Gandhi, and some kind of quote about leadership or strength coming from diverse/unlikely places.
My first thought was calligraphy along with photoshop and some kind of way to make pretty borders on nice paper. But honestly, I have really quite poor fine motor skills, and while I can envision what I would like to see, it’s difficult for me to have the ability to translate that into an image.
So, any ideas about how I can make these images a reality? My only criteria is that it be display-worthy, and that it allow me to have some latitude in how I realize the art. Is calligraphy impossible for those of us who can’t manage decent penmanship to begin with?
I know this is a really tall order, and if there are no suggestions I won’t be surprised, but I thought it couldn’t hurt to throw it out there. Thanks in advance for your help!
