Soul Painting: Beyond Artistic Talent

Soul Painting: Beyond Artistic Talent

“The object of painting a picture is not to make a picture… The object, which is back of every true work of art, is the attainment of a state of being, a high state of functioning, a more than ordinary moment of existence.” Robert Henri I find comfort in creating. As a child, my grandma […]

Woody and Me, Sittin’ Under a Tree
