Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen....

Did you ever asked yourself  - what art is? I think that art is any human creation that is able to lift the spirit to a higher plain of emotion and wonderment.
Being a painter, a writer, a sculptor or a musician doesn't put one at a higher rank than any other profession. There are a lot of professions that, when carried out to the extreme, without a doubt achieve a higher level than that of the majority of artists. For instance, a wonderful craftsman, a maker of Manila shawls, can go further than a mediocre sculptor; the work can be superior. Or a great soccer player can raise greater passion than most of painters. To be an “artist” doesn't guarantee anything. However, sometimes a genius is born in a way that distinguishes the great arts, along with science, philosophy or politics, from any other endeavor. We cannot compare Dali or Monet or Newton’s Law of Gravitation with the most amazing soccer goal. Art with capital letters is easy to detect; its light continues to shine through time....
