I have noticed that paintings are best appreciated from a distance. It is from across the room that a painting is likely to stir the heart and awaken our emotions. Often, when we step closer we see the nuances of color, the technique and the skillful use of texture. Focusing on the details, we can appreciate the genius of the artist,but the wholeness of the painting is lost. Moreover, most artists are not as interested in showcasing their technique as they are in revealing their heart and awakening the heart of others. That is the difference between an artist and a narcissist.
God is an artist.
