I have never seen the works of Michelangelo. Have you? I would dearly love to see his Pieta and David, or his frescoes in the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Heck, I just want to see Rome and that part of the world, period. Someday....
I was first introduced to this artist in Irving Stone's The Agony and the Ecstasy. I wonder how many of you remember this novel. It was like reading one of James Michener's novels. Seven hundred pages plus and you were lost in thought for weeks at a time. Did you know that Michelangelo was also a talented poet, architect and engineer? He was truly a Renaissance man.
Reading the above quote I also thought of the commonality of all artists (yes, YOU), the desire to create something from the heart. Whether it be with chisel, pen, pencil, paint brush, chalk, keyboard, needle, scissor, chisel, fiddle, voice, or shovel.....it makes no difference how we go about it, the goal is to create something memorable and worthwhile. And it's true, isn't it? We are more complete when we do.
HAVE A NICE WEEKEND!
