“The act of painting is a spiritual covenant between the maker and the higher powers.

The intent of the artist flows through the work of art no matter what the technique or

style.”  From Art and Soul

I think for most artists, the practise of making art is like a religion.  We have our rituals.

We have rules for a specfic piece called limitations.  There is a dialogue between the ourselves

and work.  When we listen, when we yield to the direction of the work, that is when the

magic happens.
