To the artist there is never anything ugly in nature ~ Auguste Rodin
Art is a harmony parallel with nature ~ Paul Cezanne
I think having land and not ruining it is the most beautiful art that anybody could ever want to own ~ Andy Warhol
Abstract art is not the creation of another reality but the true vision of reality ~ Piet Mondrian
All art is but imitation of nature ∼ Lucius Annaeus Seneca
An artist must possess Nature. He must identify himself with her rhythm, by efforts that will prepare the mastery which will later enable him to express himself in his own language ~ Henri Matisse
My painting is what I have to give back to the world for what the world gives to me ~ Georgia O’Keeffe
Above Canyon de Chelly National Monument and below Capitol Reef National Park: These abstract walls in monochrome could be the inspiration for many contemporary artists. They were certainly inspiring to us.
Everything you can imagine is real ~ Pablo Picasso
Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing ~ Salvador Dali
Although we could go on and on, we’re going to wrap up the post with one final abstract masterpiece. The photo below was taken in California on our most recent road trip. The image seems to drip, splash, and flow, but interestingly it is not water. Stay tuned for a post about the park coming soon.
Man is simply playing by nature’s rules, and art is man’s attempt to imitate the beauty of the Creator’s hand ~ Dan Brown
