AS IS LIFE! .. .
So painting – the life of paint – is a struggle!
and a trial, and a test – as is life!
There must be patience, endurance and some agony
for the ecstasy, for the moments,
for the brief moments of joy are born not made
The life must be nourished, encouraged, developed
but it comes of itself
It is born amidst anguish and labour
As a mother bears a child – as is life!
considering Georges Roualt
1871 ~ 1958
Here is an example of Georges Roualt’s work and how his artistic observation transcends the usual social mores to create something sincere, immediate and breathtakingly beautiful without overdue descriptive line, the need to be judgemental or show prejudice in any shape or form.
