For a long time there were three motto's on this page: it is time for some fresh ones. These three caught my attention.'By saying what you think, thinking is essential'.

The second one is by Charley Chaplin: Art is a love letter to the world'. When I read this line the name of the artist Andy Goldsworthy pops up. His wonderfull landart work is often fragile but unmistakably made with love. Thanks to photography those works are able to survive and they never become dull / something that goes hand in hand with good art in my opinion.

Finally: 'The thing that needs to be perfect in an instant never gets time to grow'. Often we want to achieve so much so quickly that we forget to play and experiment. Some glass pupils take pictures with them from work of pro's in the first lesson! If you don't trust your own creativity a picture can allways inspire. Imatition doesn't work for me, variation will make you far more satisfied in the end.
