FAV QUOTE FRIDAY: The Beauty Of Nature Through The Eyes Of Artists and Poets

“Monet... addresses that invisible spiritual surface
that separates light from reflection.
Airy azure captive of liquid azure…
Color rises from the bottom of the
water in clouds, in whirlpools.”

(Painting: Monet, Blue Water Lilies, by Claude Monet, 1919)

"I paint flowers so they will not die." 
~Frida Kahlo, Artist 
(Painting: 'Self Portrait' by Frida Kahlo, 1940)

"There are always flowers
for those who want to see them."

"Among the trees, you are at home"
~Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Artist, Architect

“Art is the increasing effort to compete
with the beauty of flowers... 
 and never succeeding.”

and it's profound effect on us?
Hoping the beauty of nature and the
