Artists, like all human beings, have multiple life purposes and various ways of describing their purposes. Have you ever tried to articulate your life purposes? It’s an excellent and even a life-changing exercise to try to state your life purposes and to then go one step further and explain to yourself how you’ll manifest those purposes day-in and day-out.

To learn more about doing this important work, please take a look at my latest book, Life Purpose Book Camp, which you can explore here:

And for your enjoyment and edification, here are some artists’ quotes on purpose:

“The best reason to paint is that there is no reason to paint.”—Keith Haring

“I paint for the sole purpose of magnifying the privilege of being alive.”—Robert Henri

“My paintings are not intended to alter the history of twentieth-century art or change the political climate of our times. I’m simply a story-teller.”—Carolyn Hoyle

“I affirm my profound concern to achieve a purpose beyond vanity, ambition, or remembrance.”—Clyfford Still

“May your work be in keeping with your purpose and design.”—Leonardo da Vinci
