Quote of the Day

I have been nominated by Jane Morley – View from a French hillside – to put up three quotations in three days.  As I usually do my quotes of a Tuesday I twisted the rules a little and hope to post three quotes in three weeks.

I have recently started following Janes blog.  Her still life’s are phenomenal – It is so fascinating, it makes me want to try a still life. Her photos are not only so pleasing on the eye, they attack all your senses, creating a longing to be there, wherever the photo takes you. With the food, I can almost feel the heat coming from the oven and smell the food as well. She has a softness about her photos that just makes everything beautiful…. Please go to her blog to have a look, it really will make your eyes happy.

My quote for this week isn’t so much about a photograph itself but more about the heart and soul of the photographer.

“Art is what we call…the thing an artist does.

It’s not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making. Something risky. Something human.

Art is not in the …eye of the beholder. It’s in the soul of the artist.”

Seth Godin.
