A Most Inspring Quote

Oil on Stretched Canvas

I read a most inspiring quote recently.  I need to use it as my mantra every time I get ready to paint.  

"There is a vitality, a life-force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost." (Martha Graham)

What an encouraging quote. Sometimes I wonder why I feel the need to photograph and share things I see, especially with millions of excellent photos being uploaded to the internet each day. What I see IS unique to the very moment and place and angle which it presents itself to me. And I am grateful. This quote is a keeper!
