I love that.
I’ve always loved abstraction.
Only by ignoring the literal can we show the truth.

By the way, O’Keefe had such a great understanding of light, this painting *feels* like a photograph.

Who strive—you don't know how the others strive
To paint a little thing like that you smeared
Carelessly passing with your robes afloat,—
Yet do much less, so much less, Someone says,
(I know his name, no matter)—so much less!
Well, less is more, Lucrezia: I am judged.

From Andrea del Sarto by Robert Browning.

What a crock.

Sounds reasonable enough.

Too much information can be ultimately depressing. That's what soft lights and mood music are for, and a little bit of wine completes the illusion and makes people go home happy and convinced they had a great time.

“Here's all you have to know about men and women: women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid.” Says George Carlin.

To help her keep her sanity, Georgia O'Keeffe lived in New Mexico for part of the year—while her Husband Alfred Stieglitz stayed in New York.

I love that painting. I had never seen it before. Thank you.

I recognize a pattern: someone needs to finish his Fuji camera review but just can’t get around to it and writes about tons of other things instead. I’m very good at that too...

Reminds me of how I view fiction vs nonfiction. I've always felt the greatest truths were revealed in fiction and the greatest lies in nonfiction.

I love quotes like that, even if they aren't actually helpful for practitioners!

"There is no such thing as Art, only artists"
