The philosophy of change is inculcated in the painting activity in a manner which helps our artists to see that change IS actually possible! Not only did these fellas refuse to paint when I asked them - but they also denied they could paint! Most comments I got from these guys were that they couldnt draw, paint and had no creative element to them whatsoever! This is what they told me prior to starting on the canvases. And it is comparable with our attitudes to our own selves too; often we dont have the confidence to believe we can make active 'changes' to our way of thinking and acting. We tend to overlook our strengths and potentials. We readily make our weaknesses form the basis of our life and shy from the gift of change that God Almighty has blessed us with. For man has been blessed with the opportunity to seek His Lord.
