AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Happy birthday, Bellows.

Bellows, Summer Evening, Riverside Drive, 1909


George Bellows was born on this day in 1882.

The artist is the person who makes life more interesting or beautiful, more understandable or mysterious, or probably, in the best sense, more wonderful.  The ideal artist is he who knows everything, feels everything, experiences everything, and retains his experience in a spirit of wonder and feeds upon it with creative lust.
