To Express A Feeling
One of the most apparent intentions of art is to express an emotion or experience that is to great to be summed up into one word. Within art, it a labeled emotion that holds a complex ocean of secrets and feelings. One may summarize how they feel by saying that they're happy or sad, but this may be but an understatement to a profound freedom and joy that can only be compared to a bird set free. Or perhaps, it is an understatement of a darkness that holds a beauty that consumes any beholder until they are forced to confront the undying loneliness that can only be compared to an abyss of cold solidarity? Regardless of the emotion, art is what expresses and defines an emotion that cannot be summarized into one word. That being said, pick an emotion to describe. It can be any emotion, and it can be described in any way!
Happiness is a warmth. It has varying intensities, but it is some type of warming sensation.
It's the color teal, a mix between blue and green, producing a calm yet bright color.
It tastes like chocolate, milk chocolate—dark chocolate is too bitter, milk chocolate is sweet and smooth when it swirls in your mouth or goes down your throat.
It feels like that one type of hug when the person hugging you just keeps holding you tighter and doesn't let go and you don't want to let go and you just feel safe and at peace for the first time in a while.
It's hearing a person's laugh, and you start laughing because they are laughing, and so you're both laughing and you won't stop laughing for some time.
It's just the little things that make you smile and get you through the day.
