a happy pot.

so I was thinking about this today...

if you take that statement at face value, as an artist it's kinda disheartening.
if I take the emo/need-to-be-original/selfish/prideful me out of it...
it makes a lot of sense.

I didn't make the things I photograph as art.
He did. 

"...should what is formed say to the One who formed it, “You did not make me”?
can the pot say to the potter, "You know nothing."?.."

I just get to use the eyes He gave me to "steal" my art from His art.
I know I'm not that original in my art...but in me being me as He made me...I am original.
a happy pot. :)
