The "art spirit".............................

     "When the artist is alive in any person, whatever his kind of work may be, he becomes an inventive, searching, daring, self-expressing creature.  He becomes interesting to other people.  He disturbs, upsets, enlightens, and he opens ways for a better understanding.  Where those who are not artists are trying to close the book, he opens it, shows there are still more pages possible."

     "Museums of art will not make a country an art country.  But where there is the art spirit there will be precious works to fill museums."

-Robert Henri,  The Art Spirit

I believe the Intertunnel in general, and my wee corner of the blogosphere specifically, is full of the "art spirit."  
And I thank you all kindly for it.
