"The point is, art never stopped a war and never got anybody a job. That was never its function. Art cannot change events. But it can change people. It can affect people so that they are changed...because people are changed by art - enriched, ennobled, encouraged - they then act in a way that may affect the course of events...by the way they vote, they behave, the way they think." -Leonard (John Gruen interview in Los Angeles Times, December 31, 1972)

How do you capture the color white on canvas?

As you may know, the color white does not exist in nature, only in a can or tube of paint. This cannot capture sunlight or recesses. In Fumée d’Ambre Gris, John Singer Sargent mixed white with a hint of orange to capture life, creating a breathtaking result.

Gurney Journey: The BLAST Rule

Those are indeed very good rules to keep in mind. I need to try to keep them in mind more as I paint, especially the soft edge rule.

"If you cling to nature,to the simple in nature,to the little things that hardly anyone sees and that so unexpectedly become big and beyond measuring, if you have this love of inconsiderable things and seek quite simply, as one who serves to win the confidence of what seems poor, then everything will become easier." Rainer Maria Rilke
