An Overview Connecting Painting and Simple Reality
Art seems to be above all a state of soul.
— Marc Chagall
Truth and beauty exist independent of form. They are the absolutes and the subject matter is ultimately an ephemeral illusion.
Art, like wine can be an acquired taste and we must spend time tasting or spend time looking; we must make the effort to awaken the appreciation of the beauty that is in fact within our True Self beyond the fear and ugliness of the illusion of P-B. This chapter on the art of painting is intended to create a context to support that effort.
