"To discover the conscious mind in a world where intellect is held to be valuable requires solitude - quite a lot of solitude. We have been very strenuously conditioned against solitude. To be alone is considered to be a greivous and dangerous condition.

Most people have never been alone enough. I suggest that people who like to be alone, who walk alone will perhaps be serious workers in the art field."

Agnes Martin

This is a beautiful, soothing piece. I think you should just hang it and let the light shine through.

Blue does that. The soothing thing.

Hi the Agnes Martin's quote led me to you. Solitude is what I am and I am learning to live with it so I appreciate the comfort of knowing behind it is my artist soul wanting to refresh in quilt statement pieces.
