your own nature




“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.” *

- Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887) “Proverbs from Plymouth Pulpit”

* Forgive the gender bias in the above quote but Beecher did live in the 1800s. My female friends who are artists work just as hard at finding their own nature through their artwork as do we males.

This drawing is very pretty.
Who did it?

I'm not sure. It was part of a collection I purchased years ago. No artist was credited, which is a shame. I thought it really illustrated the quote.
