Both Heard and Seen…

I love this quote! It puts my purpose as an artist into words. This gives a glimpse of why I love illustrating what Tony teaches at Mosaic Church on the weekends!

“The art of painting is made for the eyes, for sight is the noblest sense… A thing you behold is easier of belief than [one] that you hear; but whatever is both heard and seen we grasp more firmly and lay hold on more securely. I will therefore continue the word with the work and thus I may be the better understood.”
