[U] We all have a personal iconography list, but we don’t always realize it, or perhaps we don’t even know what it is.
[U] Your personal iconography is really just motifs and symbols and ideas that have personal meaning for you.
[U] They can be as simple and everyday as a cup of tea or as complex and personal as your religious beliefs, and everything in between.
[U] Knowing what your own personal icons are can be extremely helpful in allowing you to understand more about yourself and your art.
[U] One of my own personal icons is the tree.
[U] I love trees and all that they represent.
[U] The roots that are strong and firmly planted in the earth.
[U] The branches reaching out to the sky above.
[U] The leaves that change with the seasons.
[U] The shelter they can offer.
[U] The beauty and majesty and strength that they portray truly inspires me.
[U] I would like to challenge everyone to create your own personal iconography list.
[U] You can just write them down, or try to create a visual image for each symbol.
[U] Think about what each one means to you, how it is represented in your everyday life and in your artwork.
[U] How can you truly embrace your icons?
[U] Can you find more opportunities to include them in future art pieces?
[U] Why do certain images resonate with you?
