"Why dont you go paint a forest or sumthin and get lost in it."

...or so I said to an impressionist painting friend as we where climbing a mountaing this week.

A very nice mountain with a very nice view, but I was thinking about a report I had to give in at work so the scene was anything but interesting to me.

The funny thing was, that night I dreamt with the exact same mountain and its view. It was a lot nicer in my dream.

So I decided to take this pola and get lost in it.

And I cant help but notice how it came out exactly as my dream. I cant help but think that my hands and my brain have this strange chemistry together.

In the past, artists where not "artists" poets told the stories of gods.

Sculptures werent "nice", they WHERE gods.

and that goes for ALL humanity,

So I suggest we take a moment there, and think about how in the past, "art" offered such depth to the minds of people, that it was more than aesthetics, a lot more than inspiration, that they saw in these works relflected onto them the most intense experiences.

So if you are there sitting down wondering why you are looking at "art" and why it gives your life so much depth and atmosphere and feeling which otherwise are missing, look at the not very old meaning of what "art" used to be.
