Art Quote of the Day

” Try to do ugly things so that YOU make them beautiful – these are too pretty for words, one expects to see fairy dancers. I’d like to glaze them with mud to get a lttle of every day dirt in them.  Get away from the preciousness-that’s cheap ideal.  Get a little human  beauty in them.  The more delicate the thing is in nature the more one must look for the solemn note.  Color in nature is never pretty, it’s beautiful.
