How does one define art/artists within nature? Is it even possible? One summer I met a pair of fascinating Greek sisters who lived in Whitehorse, Yukon. They had a knack for using leaves and grass to create all sorts of creative designs. I was convinced they were real artists-in-the-making. Then again other summers I thought that the person responsible for all the plant art around Mont-Tremblant or Bonnett House in Fort Lauderdale was a true artist. It's getting harder and harder to coin a definition for any type of art. Below are some of my favourite quotes by famous artists; long gone but never forgotten.
Vincent Van Gogh:
"I dream my painting and I paint my dream."
"Every child is an artist.
The problem is how to remain an artist once (s)he grows up."
"Art is the only serious thing in the world.
And the artist is the only person who is never serious."
Leonardo Da Vinci:
"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt,
and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen."
