Deeper than Vision
Some say the artist is about vision. Seeing the world. Setting it down. And some say the artist is about telling. A story that needs to be heard.
But when I hold these soft pastels, it is pure feeling that overtakes... surges through my fingertips, my whole being.
Maybe what takes shape is really something I've seen. Or a story that's been circling within my soul. But at the level of experience... me, these raw colors, this paper, these movements, art is deeper than vision. It is elemental soul.
