quote, Kimon Nicolaides

"It is necessary to rid yourself of the object as it appears. The quality of absoluteness, the note of authority that the artist seeks depends upon a more complete understanding than the eyes alone can give. To what the eye can see the artist adds feeling and thought. He can, if he wishes, relate for us the adventures of his soul in the midst of life."

-Kimon Nicolaides

I pulled this from Walt Stanchfield's 'Drawn to Life' lectures, vol.2
