Can't Believe I Wrote This

The purpose is for individual human beings to create paintings that arrest the attention, that stir the soul, that point to the mystery-the paradox-the glory-the hidden-ness of existence--that kindle the imagination. Paintings that don't preach but point to something previously unseen, unheard, untouched, unheralded in our brief journey on the planet. Paintings that shut our mouths and open our hearts and minds in ways previously unimagined. Paintings that shift the collective perception, that make us weep, or at least take off our hats in the presence of something great even if we can't talk about greatness. Paintings that endure over time because they are-- well...timeless. -Don Hatfield

God answers my grief with His creative love everyday.
