"There are moments in our lives,
there are moments in a day,
when we seem to see beyond the usual.
Such are the moments of our greatest happiness.
Such are the moments of our greatest wisdom.
If one could but recall his vision by some sort of sign.
It was in this hope that the arts were invented.
Sign-posts on the way to what may be.
Sign-posts toward greater knowledge." - Robert Henri
Doing this Challenge is my kickstart to get back to painting after the run up to
and then thru the holidays. Making it fun is most important for me.
If you have NOT read Robert Henri's book The Art Spirit,
I would like to introduce it to you by way of a quote from him now and then,
or perhaps every day ... along with my word or phrase of the day!
His quote above is the first in his book, after the foreword.
(Hope I do not step on my commitment to be less blog-wordy . . .)
