Seeing the Unseen

"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."  - Degas

 

I love this quote from the French artist Edgar Degas, regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism. To me, it defines one of the primary goals of making art which is to bring the viewer a unique visual experience and a point of view that has an impact. I love to find interesting and dynamic images in the things that we can easily pass by, such as the patterns of windblown sand on a beach. All it takes is time and a receptivity to what is in front of us.
