“Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.” —George Bernard Shaw

In the beginning, the Old Master Painter hands the struggling artist a minimal palettethe dark, the light, the line, the shape, the primary colorsand says, Go forth and struggle!  

“The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.” —G. K. Chesterton  Well, the artist knows the elements of creation when he sees them.

“I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.” —Joan Miro 

And he sees that, while each element is unique, they are bound together.

“Art and life are inseparable.” —Eva Hesse

So he uses the whole palette to compose his thoughts.

“The soul never thinks without a picture.” —Aristotle

And before you can say Primary Directive, an amazing things happens.

“Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life.” —Oscar Wilde

The artist’s struggle becomes a labor of love.

“Art is the proper task of life.” —Friedrich Nietzsche

And the Old Master Painter laughs. It sounds like the soundtrack of the video.

“Music is the laughter of the gods.” —Stan Schwartz
