There is a transformation in the artist in every painting he/she does. Growth is revealed through the work performed and also in the devotion towards love and the beauty of the subject. Just to reach for something beyond one's self is a selfless act that gives to the community and world at large through the inspiration and care given to the imagination. It is a revealing of the awe of god, the great spirit, the higher reality or whatever name is given to that essence within everything that gives divine grace to every moment.
