"I get up every morning determined
both to change the world
and to have one hell of a good time.
This makes planning the day difficult." (E.B. White)
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen. ~Leonardo da Vinci
Oops. Should've had this one up yesterday, for da Vinci's birthday. Sorry, Leo. :)
I love this one, but to some extent I disagree with Leonardo. I DO see poetry when I read it, particularly when the poet has conjured up an image I can't let go of.
I get that, Tricia. Wish Leonardo could show up and debate with you.
I particularly love the first half of that, as someone who is constantly showing art anymore at the ol' blawg. I get that. I really do.
I agree -- I can imagine poetry as well, but I do feel his point -- sometimes that gouache is just... poetry in paint.
