New England Scenes & Still Life Oil Paintings

  1. 1. New England Scenes and Still Life Oil Paintings By Nancy L. Griswold All work is copyrighted
  2. 2. The making of visual art has been a conduit of the expressions of emotive, sensual and life observations. It is the most comfortable vehicle of communication and understanding, for me. Through the years my art changes. Some years I have been able to progress to new levels of mastery and other years I remained stuck, struggling with massive demands and interruptions to my work of 20 th century living. I know little of creating verse or writings to compliment my art. It is visual, it stands on it’s own with a viewer, without words to communicate. I do relate and feel a sense of congruency to some of the passages written in “Art Spirit” by Robert Henri Nancy
  3. 3. “ There is the heart and the mind, the Puritan idea that the mind must be the master. I think the heart should be the master and the mind should be the tool and servant of the heart. As it is, we give too much attention to laws and not enough to principals. The man who wants to produce art must have the emotional side first, and this must be reinforced by the practical. The man who has great emotions might burst into tears-but that is as far as he will get if he has no practical side. The artist must have the emotional side first, the primal cause of his being an artist, but he must also have an excellent mind, which he must command and use as a tool for the expression of his emotions. The idea, which is the primal thing for a picture, is all in the air; the expression on canvas is a case of absolute science as it deals with materials. A great artist is both a great imaginer and a great employer of the practical science. First there must be the man, then the technique.” The Art Spirit This entry was written by Robert Henri, Died 1929, American Painter and Teacher Compiled by Margery A. Ryerson, 1923, Page 119 First there must be the man, then the technique

  20. 20. “ It is harder to see than it is to express. The whole value of art rests in the artist's ability to see well into what is before him.” “ That which is worthwhile in a landscape is the expression of human emotion in it. The sympathetic painting of a still life has more humanity in it than a head, unsympathetically painted” The Art Spirit Robert Henri, compiled by Margery A. Ryerson, 1923, Page 87 and 259
