Fruit for the soul

Art is a fruit that grows in man, like a fruit on a plant, or a child in its mother's womb.

'...or a child in its mother's womb.' this is so beautiful!!! Thinker, do you know the writings of the artist Lygia Clark? It really fits this description. Beautiful :) Another one for my favourites, Thinker :)

it is that belief that there is growth that makes each day painting badly worth continuing because you know it all contributes to the process. thanks for this. r.

Yes, i believe we grow more through our failures and defeats than trough our success..

I like to think of it that way too.
It's why I don't feel bad when I take my time.
Beautiful picture Luisa.

very true, i agree that we grow a lot through failure. also in success but in a different way, i guess. everything is part of the path.
Thanks Rahina and thanks Cécile :)
