What we seek is already there within us...by aisling d'art ©2003 - 2006
"What we seek is already there within us..."
This is one of my favorite pages in the entire journal. Or sets of pages, I suppose. The line is from Peter London's book, "No More Secondhand Art," linked in the right column.
The media include black gesso, silver Gelly Roll gel pen, magazine images, assorted metal leafing, and Golden Gel Medium, Soft Gel (Gloss).
The importance of an "inspiration file"...
I keep a card file of inspirational quotes. Many of my favorites are from Peter London's book, No More Secondhand Art.
For example, when I'm making art that's sliding inelegantly into the "cute" realm, I find comfort and inspiration in this art-related quote from that book, "Meaning, not beauty, is what we are after."
