Hi, Angel -- I enjoyed the video; thanks for sharing!

Some of my fave art-related quotes:

~ Dorothea Lange

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
~ Elliott Erwitt

"Style is besides the point. Nobody would pay attention if one always said the same thing, in the same words and the same tone of voice."
~ Pablo Picasso

‎”Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It’s a gift to the world and every being in it. Don’t cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you’ve got.”

"All of the greatest artists never thought they were." (Murray)

"Whether it is the beautiful that brings to our hearts the love of truth and justice, or whether it is truth that teaches us how to find the beautiful in nature and how to love it, in eather case art does a noble work. It drags out the soul from its everyday shell, and brings it under the spell of its own mysterious and wonderful power, so that a memory of this experience stays with the people, sustains them in their daily labors, and refines their minds."

HELENA MODJESKA, "Women and the Stage," The World's Congress of Representative Women

As we advance in life it becomes more and more difficult, but in fighting the difficulties the inmost strength of the heart is developed. ~

I believe on Oscar Wilde. All art is actually useless.
Useless things are important to make our life interisting.

The useful things are repetitive and boring. The funcional stuff are ugly. Look at bauhaus buildings and chears. They are ugly, when old they are abandoned and nobody want them.

Now, look at over worked buildings, temples and churchs. They are useless. They are just decoration, they are made just to be apretiated not to be used. The same with old funiture and paintings, too many useless details and extra work. But people want them because useless things are important.

Do you think this was useless for someone never have seen the ocean before on it entire life before
I made out this of useless things found on the beach
