what is art?

What is art? Is art drawing or colouring? Is it designing clothes? Or is it creating a sculpture? There are so many different kinds of art and so many interpretations.

art (n): the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing or of more than ordinary significance.

Art to me is relaxing in a way. It allows my mind to wander, to imagine things beyond reality. It is an escape, nothing has to make sense, nothing has to be realistic, logic has no place in the world of art. It has no plan, let the brush flow over the paper, swirl different colours in the palette and watch as a painting slowly starts to form. It is a different world when I sit at the table and start to paint, there are no rules or restrictions as to what you can do.
