For the Artist

The Virgin & Child with St. Anne & St. John the Baptist , by da Vinci

“The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life.”
~William Faulkner

“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”
~Leonardo da Vinci
