Critique By Creating

portrait-of-michelangelo-bartolommeo-bandinelli-8213513e

“The promises of this world are, for the most part, vain phantoms; and to confide in one’s self, and become something of worth and value is the best and safest course.”

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

“What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment with which it is clothed?”

“Beauty is the purgation of superfluities.”

“How wrong are those simpletons, of whom the world is full, who look more at color than at the figures which show spirit and movement.”

“What do you despise? By this you are truly known.”

“Ancora Imparo.” (Yet I am learning.)

“Patience is eternal genius.”

“If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it would not seem so wonderful at all.”

“I am a poor man and of little worth, who is laboring in that art that God has given me in order to extend my life as long as possible.”

“If I am more alive because love burns and chars me,
as a fire, given wood or wind, feels new elation,
it’s that he who lays me low is my salvation,
and invigorates the more, the more he scars me.”

“I live and love in God’s peculiar light.”

“My soul can find no staircase to Heaven unless it be through Earth’s loveliness.”

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

“Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish.”

“There is no greater harm than that of time wasted.”

“Critique by creating.”

The Art of Crys Yin & Natalie Wynn

skull 2020

I wrote this week’s blog post five times, completing four different posts, choosing from six different ideas! I just couldn’t decide on what I wanted to share. There is so much going on in the U.S.. Everything was competing for attention.

So I decided to combine two ideas. I want to share the art of Crys Yin. She usually paints with a colorful palette, but for the moment I’m interested in her black & white political posters. That’s what I’ll share with you today. You’ll find her image and artwork below the video.

I also love the work of Natalie Wynn. She creates Youtube videos under the name ContraPoints. She’s my safe place when I feel overwhelmed by normies. (Which is often.) I had a feeling she wouldn’t be excited about Biden, but I’m glad she voted for him. She explains it all in the video.

Speaking of voting… please say you did. And if you didn’t, click here. Vote him out. Do it as early as you can. Thanks!

The Trouble with Artists

NICAISE_Leopold_ANV

In 1845, Leopold I, King of the Belgians, wrote a letter to Queen Victoria, warning her about people like me. :)

The King of the Belgians to Queen Victoria.

St. Cloud, 10th October 1845.

My Dearest Victoria – All you say about our dear Albert, whom I love like my own child, is perfectly true. The attacks, however unjust, have but one advantage, that of showing the points the enemy thinks weakest and best calculated to hurt. This, being the case, Anson, without boring A. with daily accounts which in the end become very irksome, should pay attention to these very points, and contribute to avoid what may be turned to account by the enemy. To hope to escape censure and calumny is next to impossible, but whatever is considered by the enemy as a fit subject for attack is better modified or avoided. The dealings with artists, for instance, require great prudence; they are acquainted with all classes of society, and for that very reason dangerous; they are hardly ever satisfied, and when you have too much to do with them, you are sure to have des ennuis…

Your devoted Uncle, Leopold R.
