As Georgia O’Keeffe’s work so beautifully illustrates, together, nature and art offer many lessons, one of the most important being patience…
Nobody sees a flower, really, it is so small.
We haven’t time—and to see takes time like to have a friend takes time.
Painters understand nature and love her
and teach us to see her.
It is looking at things for a long time that ripens you
and gives you a deeper understanding.
Vincent Van Gogh
For those who have the interest to look closely,
life becomes art.
Normally we do not so much look at things as overlook them.
Most new discoveries are suddenly seen things
that were always there.
Susanne K. Langer
Everything that slows us down and forces patience,
everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help.
To see a World in a Grain of Sand,
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the Palm of your Hand,
And Eternity in an Hour
