A short list of great quotes

  • Georgia O’KeeffeI found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.

  • Pablo Picasso. Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun.

  • Paul Valery. An artist never really finishes his work, he merely abandons it.

  • Leo Tolstoy. To say that a work of art is good, but incomprehensible to the majority of men, is the same as saying of some kind of food that it is very good but that most people can’t eat it.

  • Jackson Pollock. I have no fear of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own.

  • Carroll O’Connor. Even a true artist does not always produce art.


Completely Behind.

Text by Ralph Marston

There are two parts to every burden. One is the burden itself, and the other is how much of that burden you internalize and take for your own. You cannot magically transport yourself away from difficult circumstances. Yet you can choose to see, understand and live the fact that even the most difficult burden is not a part of who you are.

The troubles you experience are merely that — experiences. As difficult as they may be, they do not need to become a part of you. Yes, you must pay attention to them and do something about those difficulties. Yet they are what you are working on and they are not who you are.

You exist beyond every single difficulty, beyond every burden, beyond every obstacle and overwhelming challenge. And though it will likely require great effort, you can rise above every one of them.

Though difficulties may consume your time, ravage your body and deplete your resources, they need never tarnish your soul. You are always free to experience the difficulties while at the same time living beyond them. And by so doing, eventually you will leave them completely behind.
