On my walk through the neighborhood today I found a row of still life subjects waiting patiently for paint.
I think they have been waiting for a long time.
I pointed them out to the tall person and asked him why no one had painted these wonderful subjects. He shook his head sadly and agreed that they deserve some special attention. He said that seeing them reminded him of something that George Bernard Shaw once said: “Which painting in the National Gallery would I save if there was a fire? The one nearest the door of course”.
Hmm. A useful quotation tall person and one which clearly emphasizes the importance of doors in art.
