Goodness, truth and beauty are pursued by the artist and the mystic. It is one quest. The life of the mystic, one who sees the creator is everything, cultivates the artists’ soul.

Art and mysticism have the same disciplines, values, and spiritual practices. I mean, love, , reverence, devotion. The contemplative life makes for great art. The merger of the quality of great soulness and creativity. The artist calls out for greater consciousness. Be attentive. Wisdom is among us. What the eyes fail to see the heart responds to with humility.  The artist perseveres just beyond our ordinary senses and lets us glimpse at the essence of beauty.
