Thought for Thursday

"Whenever we indulge in what might be called 'paint by numbers' art, we are engaging in cynicism and skepticism.  We are on a subtle level out to 'fool' people.  We are looking down at our audience and saying 'If I just feed them what they are used to getting, I can fool them.'  Does this mean that we must always and willfully break the mold?  No..we are always engaged in a delicate balancing act. We both know how things 'are done' and we must strive to listen accurately to see if that's how our particular piece of art wants to be done."
        ~Discovering A Sense Of Authenticity, Walking In This World, Julia Cameron
