Journey


I took this photograph, which I named "Journey," in upstate New York, near Saugerties. I love how the tall trees make the figure look so tiny. They are overwhelming yet they seem to mark a path, or give guidance. We're all wanderers in a way. The artist in particular, has the courage to make an uncertain but very special journey. I hope these quotes will inspire you.

"Art is creative for the sake of realization, not for amusement: for transfiguration, not for the sake of play. It is the quest of our self that drives us along the eternal and never-ending journey we must all make." - Max Beckmann


"Painting is a journey. It is the way I mark my path through life." - Virginia Cobb


"A philosophy of life: I'm an adventurer, looking for treasure.” - Paulo Coelho


"If the path before you is clear, you're probably on someone else's." - Joseph Campbell


"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt
