::: Renoir :::I've always thought that there shouldn't be any limit to the things that are well designed. And I think that people who consider that art should only be kept for art galleries and doesn't have a role in public life, I think that's too narrow.
The above quote by Renoir is what I base my artistic creativity upon. I hope to create many paintings worthy of display in any art gallery in the world, but that doesn't mean I will always succeed. But, it doesn't necessarily mean that the paintings "unworthy" of gallery representation do not have their place in this world. What one person considers 'unworthy' may seem like a 'masterpiece' to someone else. Whether it is praise or criticism, if a work of art evokes some kind of emotion in it's being, it has a reason to exist.
I have decided not to try to do an 'artist quote of the week' with everything that has been going on in our lives and the fact that we are now into our 'busy' season. If I can do one a month, I will feel like I have 'done good'.
