Contemplating Contemplation



Robert Henri, one of my favorite writers on painting said –

‘There can be no art without contemplation’

So why aren’t you painting?

Answer – I’m contemplating.

Same thing in the end. There will be blood. There will be art of some description when the contemplation comes to an end.

Who can say how long that process takes?

Minutes, days, weeks or years.

It’s different for everyone and the sad fact is that there is the length of time does not necessarily guarantee the quality of the resultant art.

Sometimes all it takes is a glance.

Please glance here while you’re contemplating and have a lovely weekend.
