“Art is not a thing; it is a way.”
Relationship Artists are visionaries and creators of lives. They seek to develop their hearts, minds, bodies, and souls so as to employ themselves in a project larger than themselves. It is not an immersion in the couple, it is not a loss of self, it is a joining, a sharing, the acceptance of a challenge to create a couple, a partnership that is greater than either individual. Within the context of relationship, and using the creative outlook of the artist, the partners seek to learn about themselves and each other, to digest all that came before in order to transcend and make something larger.
The “Way” of the Relationship Artist represents a commitment to a process. A committed relationship is more like a dance that never ends, than a painting that gets completed, framed, and hung on a wall. It starts with an intention and is recognized as a perpetual work in progress. The goal is not to have your relationship hung in a museum, but to exult, together, in the joy of creation and continual re-creation. The Relationship Artist revels in the processes of loving.
