Gustav Klimt, "Garden Landscape"
The fact is that the creative person is a disciplined craftsman whose "gift" is a reaching out toward his most profound personal potential. In the process of making anything, a person moves beyond personal expression to make something that stands by itself. The work acquires its own internal validity, its own integrity. It is in [the] process of making something... that the creator contacts a concrete reality outside his subjective life and moves into the realm of the transcendent.
