As it was

Once upon a time . Once upon a time an artist somewhere took an iink filled brush to hand and painted.. did he paint or draw? If he was in the schools of Western thought he drew the picture. If in the schools of Eastern thinking, he painted the picture with brush. An interesting difference as well was the age old plein aire idea that if the landscape wasn't painted on location it had to be from a photo and not natural. The Chinese landscape masters did neither really because they were able almost spiritually to take brush and paint as if they were there or had been there before. Today that might be called fantasy or painting from memory when in fact it is closer to being guided by the spiritual hands. So times have not changed so much as schools of thought have. For now I leave you with this but I will return .
