Painting...

Vermeer

ISN'T IT FUNNY WHEN someone says exactly what you would have said, if only you'd gotten there first? Maybe ideas float through space. D.T. SUZUKI...caught this one...wrote it down..now it's mine, now it's yours....

" A wonderful painting is the result of the feeling in your fingers. If you have the feeling of the thickness of the ink in your brush, the painting is already there before you paint. When you dip your brush into the ink you already know the result of your drawing, or else you cannot paint. So before you do something, "being" is there, the result is there. Even though you look as if you were sitting quietly, all your activity, past and present, is included, and the result of you sitting is also there".

Maybe life is deja vu', all over again. As the great philosopher, Yogi Berra once said!

Hi Lyn,

I wish you'd mentioned this earlier, then I could have had a couple of masterpieces done already!

So, it's all there, in the ink, ust waiting? Well, I'll be!

Lyn said...

Hi Derrick-
But you have done your "masterpiece" or so much good work, already!! The "ink", is there,to make visible your intention!
Perhaps a good coffee house discussion...

Have been away from blogging for a couple of weeks, so trying to catch up.

This, too, is what I love about blogging! I so hope I'll be a fine artist in my next life.

Lyn said...
