A Painter’s Statement in Six Aphorisms
By David M. Stallings
The world is full of harsh, loud vulgarity.
I want to bring forth a soft, quiet Beauty.
Sensibility leans towards the
timeless, the subtle, and the beautiful.
A painting is always more than the subject it depicts.
The poetry of a thing depicted
is often more important than the thing depicted.
Great work doesn’t take you to another place,
It vitalizes the place you are in.
Be it a Life self forged
Or one bound by Fate,
Two things are certain:
Life is hard, Love is Great.
