“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognise: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
Thich Nhat Hanh
Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.
What art offers is space – a certain breathing room for the spirit.
The abstracting of visual elements in order to recognise their particularity has become automatic, but seeing, combining, and creating them as integrated ‘wholes’ will remain a lifelong challenge.
What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.

Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
“The good watercolours take a lifetime – plus a half an hour”
