I have a collection of quotes and poetry that beautifully express the longing, and wonder I try to draw upon in my art. These quotes have gone on long walks with me, comforted me during dark nights, and bolstered me when in despair over the state of the earth, my art, and the seemingly all encompassing spirit of not caring. After all, what can I do? These quotes remind me. I can paint an inner moment, I can share the enchantment I find in nature. I can hopefully pass it on.
