internal, external

Art is internal, photography external. Therefore one must paint with what  is  inside  of

us, our feelings, our emotions, our thoughts before it can  be  called  Art.  If  one  does

on-the-spot paintings from still life to landscapes to  street  scenes  or  even  portraits,

one is merely a photographer, not an artist. Because photography is capturing what is

happening all around us, not inside of us. It is an external discipline.

behind your eye

The happenings around you does not compose that image. Your eyes does

not compose that image for it is but an optical instrument. It is  what  that  is

happening  behind  your  eye  that  composes  the  image  that  makes  your

finger click the shutter.
