Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.
- Sir Joshua Reynolds
We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are.

    This piece is just lovely. I can almost feel the velvet texture of this ladies dress. The color of her dress is beautiful against the stained glass window!
