"An artist’s career always begins tomorrow."
"There are those who so dislike the nude that they find something indecent in the naked truth."
~F. H. Bradley (1846-1924)
“…though you seek in garments the freedom of privacy you may find in them a harness and a chain. Would that you could meet the sun and the wind with more of your skin and less of your raiment, for the breath of life is in the sunlight and the hand of life is in the wind.”
~Khalil Gibran - quote from “The Prophet”
"Very few people possess true artistic ability. It is therefore both unseemly and unproductive to irritate the situation by making an effort. If you have a burning, restless urge to write or paint, simply eat something sweet and the feeling will pass."
Island, digital image, 2011
"An artist never really finishes his work, he merely abandons it."
