moments of perfection

Art work has only a tintering of what it attempts to represent to the artist and to responsive observers.
It does not tell the truth. It is enjoyed or not according to the condition of the observer.
We make a response to art. We look. We are happier or more sad, more at peace, more depressed. We may yearn, The cause of that response is not traceable.
The response depends on the condition of the viewer.


The above text is from Agnes Martin's collected Writings.
The photos were taken over the last 24 hours. I'm with family.

Your family is lovely, and your moments, treasures. Family can be a challenge and yet...and yet...I know this much: I love mine with my life!

The art of being with family is supreme experience...and the setting--oh--what a fine frame for love.

This struck a chord with me: The response depends on the condition of the viewer, by the succinct Agnes Martin. Enjoy your vacation time with your family, Judy.
