A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent upon arriving. 
A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants.
- Lao-Tzu 

Art is indeed not the bread but the wine of life.
- Jean Paul Richter

I can't work without a model. 
I won't say I turn my back on nature ruthlessly in order to turn a study into a picture, arranging the colors, enlarging and simplifying; 
but in the matter of form I am too afraid of departing from the possible and the true.
- Vincent Van Gogh

To speak of morals in art is to speak of legislature in sex. 
Art is the sex of the imagination.
- George Jean Nathan

The artist does not see things as they are, but as he is.
- Alfred Tonnelle

The object of art is to give life a shape. [Midsummer Nights Dream]
- William Shakespeare 

All art is an imitation of nature.
- Seneca

The age of a woman doesn't mean a thing. 
The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson 

More art later this week...


  1. Mielenkiintoisia patsaita!

  2. I'm catching up from a crazy week!

    LOVE these images of women and the great quotes. The red face is so striking and I feel like I could have modeled for some of the hefty ones! Yeah, I could shed a few pounds.

    You are so excellent at street scenes, catching all the vibrancy of life as it unfolds around you. It's poetic.

    And the Stone House! I love the way you put your "Blogitse" over one of the beams. It's your house! That is a great shot. And the stone is so mesmerizing, just beautiful.

    By the way, CAREFUL with sharp objects!! :>)

  3. Kolmas alhaalta on ihan mun kroppa. Tuleekohan tää nyt kaksi kertaa, kun painoin vahingossa jotain väärä nappulaa.

  4. Interesting quotes. When I look ay an object of art, I think of it as a piece of evidence, so to speak. Or, an artifact. It suggests something about a way of being, and engaging with life. The art is in the processes, more than the object. The object is a material fall-out from creative acting. So, art, in this sense is more a verb, than a noun.

    I always try to be careful with sharp objects but sometimes they want to touch me too deep! :)

    Oma suosikkini on myos peilaava nainen. Se on jotenkin hieno...

    hm...a verb. Interesting. When the object is ready it lives it own life in our reality...yes, why not a verb!
