#a9231e foreground

For me, painting is a way to forget life. It is a cry in the night, a strangled laugh.

Georges Rouault
<p style="color: #a9231e">…</p>

#a9231e background

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way--things I had no words for.

Georgia O'Keeffe

If I were called upon to define briefly the word Art, I should call it the reproduction of what the senses preceive in nature, seen through the veil of the soul.
