By the way, I saw this piece of yours and have to tell you just how beautiful it is in its natural simplicity and selective detail. I will share three good quotes that it brings to mind. Shakespeare - “Art is a mirror held up to nature”. Two quotes from Hans Hofmann - “The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak”. and “An idea can only be materialized with the help of a medium of expression, the inherent qualities of which must be surely sensed and understood in order to become the carrier of an idea”. I am by no means an art critic or all that knowledgeable about art – just someone who appreciates it - but to me, this piece surely reflects all three of these quotes. Best, G
Dear Emilia, I should "write" you a proper thank you note for the beautiful cuff bracelet that arrived today, but I couldn't wait! It is truly beautiful and I send you my sincere thanks.
