Seeing the Moon on a Hot Summers Day

(that's the title of this painting)

The making of art starts with chaos and is resolved into order, which can make it beautiful. First, the artist has to manifest the message and then work on the painting until it is totally satisfying, work on the message until it finally emerges and becomes something else which no longer belongs solely to the artist. Great painting is that wonderful, non-verbal, material thing that expresses the reality of the spirit.--Helen Frankenthaler

Always at the commencement of work that first innocence must be reachieved, you must retum to that unsophisticated spot where the angel discovered you when he brought you the first binding message. If the angel deigns to come, it will be because you have convinced him, not with tears, but with your humble resolve to be always beginning: to be a beginner.--Rainer Maria Rilke
