(De)fault Line

The consolation of belief, the consolation of art, the consolation of a good meal.

The inspiration of belief, the inspiration of art, the inspiration of a good meal.

The limitations of belief, the limitations of art, the limitations of a good meal

That is very lovely. Love the delicate nature of it.

Yes, she´s a lovely + consoling + inspirational presence (she might have her limitations though, too... ;)

In the mini-version of this art that shows up on my blog's dashboard, the flower looks like a banana peel, which I kind of like---consolation, inspiration, limitation.

Probably cause it reminds me of Grouch Marx, "Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like bananas."

But the lily is nice too.

Fresca- Strangely enough, I was thinking how little I have done with fruit in this series just recently. The possiblities are truly endless...

I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers.

"The highest problem of any art is to cause by appearance the illusion of a higher reality."~Goethe

who then is later quoted:

"The highest problem of every art is, by means of appearances, to produce the illusion of a loftier reality."

Critic.

Like this one, I do (besides what did Goethe really know about art, much less understand it, wot? )
