Georges Braque – The Value of Art

“Art is made to disturb. Science reassures. There is only one valuable thing in art; the thing you cannot explain.”

 – Georges Braque

My watercolor instructor says if the painting shows “everything” and does not leave room for the viewer to “finish” it it’s a boring painting – to say the least – or may be even a bad one. The Braque quote reminded me of that.

Have a great sunny weekend!

 

 

Practice Practice Practice

“The hard must become habit. The habit must become easy. The easy must become beautiful.”     – Doug Henning –

I really like this quote. The process he describes is so essential to creating anything beautiful in your life as in art. It’s practice practice practice, then it becomes habit and hopefully one day you create something beautiful.

For more on this subject I recommend reading this blog by Leo Babauta. Enjoy!

Art Everywhere

Being ‘spiritual’ simply means being willing to look into the nature of life, to ask questions and to wonder, and to listen.  It also means seeing art everywhere.         -Quang Ho-
