On Artists...

"Artists help us see the surprising beauty that breaks into our daily lives by celebrating that which might otherwise pass by unnoticed.  Artists are in a unique position to have an intimate record of human life, as they give us the opportunity to see not only through their eyes but also through their thoughts and emotions.  One could say that the greater the art, the more clearly we experience this communion of souls.  Artists remind us that despite the pain and ugliness in the world, something deeper exists - a beauty that peeks through the drudgery of life, whispering that there is more just beneath the surface."  -Juliette Aristides, from Classical Painting Atelier
