Transformation

Edgar Degas, who died today, 27 September 1917, said: "It is all very well to copy what one sees, but it is far better to draw what one now only sees in one's memory. That is a transformation in which imagination collaborates with memory."

Fealing Lin Watercolor Artist



To be true to your gifts, be both inspired and inspiring – then you can express your love, your passion, your strength and your belief in the human spirit. -- Fealing Lin

Puccini Quote

“Vissi d’arte, vissi d’amore” [I lived for art, I lived for love] – Puccini

Ship of Dreams



This is as close as I have gotten to simplicity lately.

Understanding Painting


"Any good landscape painting I've ever done was also simple. Whether it was a plain air painting that took an hour or a large studio painting that took months, I had to find a way to translate the vast amount of detail into a coherent statement that makes sense not only for me but to the viewer."
-- Mitchell Albala, from his book,  Landscape Painting.
