I'll be traveling this weekend, so will be back with a painting post on Monday. Meanwhile, a few of my favorite quotes:
Artists and writers - like ritual magicians - know that the ego, the conscious self, does not really create anything. Instead, all our training and preparation serves to allow us to get out of the way. Something moves through us. Something wants to be created. This is what it means to experience magic, to open yourself to the power of life.
~ Rachel Pollack
If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.
~ Edward Hopper
A painter paints pictures on canvas, but musicians paint their pictures on silence.
~ Leopold Stokowski
