"I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious" ~ Andrew Wyeth

"Art is literacy of the heart" ~ Elliot Eisner

"Good art is not what it looks like, but what it does to us." ~ Roy Adzak

"The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery." ~ Francis Bacon

"A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art." ~ Paul Cézanne

Random Favourites

There are some amazingly talented people on DA and these are my particular favourites! I tend to fave a lot of redheads, forests, mazes, topiary, sundials, gardens, toadstools, cats, cute wild animals, ballet themed shots, landscapes, blue and purple flowers, sculptures and artistic nudes, but there are a lot of other themes to be found in my favourite's folder!

Enter...and enjoy...

Random from Redheads

What can I say? I've always had a thing for redheads, finding them beautiful, mysterious and alluring, and particularly tend to favour long-haired, dreamy/wistful looking models! If you like that look too I am sure you will enjoy the contents of this folder...

So, I shall keep the donation pool open but the points will probably go towards prizes for my next contest!

So with that in mind, any points would be most appreciated. :hug:

Some of My Favourite Quotes...

"To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour..."
- William Blake

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
- Buddha (563 BC - 483 BC)

Everything begins and ends, at exactly the right time and place...
- Picnic At Hanging Rock

Frodo:
I wish the ring had never come to me.
I wish none of this had happened.

Gandalf:
So do all who live to see such times.
But that is not for them to decide.
All we have to decide is what to do
with the time that is given to us.

Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

- Edgar Allan Poe

Fill yourself with desire and see only illusion,
Empty yourself of desire and understand the great mystery of things.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

- Lao-tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu

Do not fear to hope,
for every time we smell the autumn's dying scent,
we know the primrose time will come again.

- Samuel Coleridge
