Beautiful art…was created by human beings just like you… Maya Angelou QUOTE FOR WRITERS (and people who like quotes)

starry-sky-1948523_640Find a beautiful piece of art. If you fall in love with Van Gogh or Matisse or John Oliver Killens, or if you fall love with the music of Coltrane, the music of Aretha Franklin, or the music of Chopin – find some beautiful art and admire it, and realize that that was created by human beings just like you, no more human, no less.
Maya Angelou

      Thanks for reblogging – it deserves to be shared. Maya Angelou had a way of saying something that you never thought of before but when you heard it, you felt like yelling yes, yes!

        My pleasure, Bridget. It absolutely deserves to be shared! I often yell YES when I read her words. Did you know that Maya Angelou wrote a wonderful children’s picture book? It’s a favorite in my classroom. My Painted House My Friendly Chicken and Me.

    My favourite painting accompanied by a wonderful quote by an inspirational woman. What a great way to begin the week. Thank you. 🙂

      So glad I scored with both picture & quote Norah. Thought a long time about how to illustrate it and, although this isn’t my favourite painting, and Van Gogh isn’t my favourite artist, it did seem to sum up the the spirit of what Maya Angelou was saying. (And I should add the older I get the bigger Van Gogh fan I become, but that probably says more about me than it does about him.)

        Did you see the movie Loving Vincent that came out last year? I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is very innovative and a fascinating look at the man through his art. I would say Monet and his waterlilies are probably my favourites, but I do love the impressionists in general. Matisse is also a favourite. So much to admire!
