Art and Simplicity

The beauty of things of significance made for the eye, ear, and hand, is that not only do they appeal to my intellect, they touch my heart. The length of a word, the shape of a phrase, its tone and colour intermingles with what is meant, intended, or thought to mean.

Beauty in art is a union of things I feel and think. As kindness is to love, beauty is most powerfully expressed simply, as when things are known and felt like the words: the warmth of sun on skin.

To know is not always to understand. At times knowing is instinctive, experiential, as when you close your eyes under the warmth of sun, and feel its touch.
