For the love of it

“It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done”.  Vincent van Gogh

One thing I have learned since opening the gallery is that the artists here love what they do.  I mean really love it! They all have a passion for creating in their chosen medium and they definitely ‘accomplish much’ and do it very well.  That passion shows not only in the finished works but also in the many impromptu discussions that end up being a master class in painting, drawing, photography, composition, art history or whatever other topic comes up when artists get together.  I have found that the process of creating is where the true love lies.  These artists immerse themselves in the smallest of details about creating.

They tend not to go on about their finished product.  There really is no need for that.  The art truly speaks for itself.
