Don't Be Clear

A  L  O  H  A !

“Enormous enlargements of 
an object or a fragment 
give it a personality 
it never had before, "
            Fernand Léger

“A painting requires 
a little mystery, some 
vagueness, some fantasy. 
When you always make 
your meaning perfectly plain 
you end up boring people.” 
                      Edgar Degas

“The job of the artist 
is always to 
deepen the mystery.”
                    Francis Bacon

Thank YOU

Love the mystery of why that bird looks so frumpy today.

The pose of the egret goes well with the Degas quote: the egret is like one of Degas's ballerinas. Magnificent!

Charles Gramlich said...

Interesting quote about artists, the deepening of the mystery. I'm kind of in agreement

A little preening is always a good thing for a bird.
