Art As Process

Art as life, or should that be, Life as art
Or maybe, Art is life or Life is art.......
Oh, the heck with it, there is no difference.

You see, art is a lifestyle,
a way of living, a process.

The lifestyle is one of constant seeing,
Of always being in touch with your surroundings, 
Of seeing not what a thing is, but what it could be.

This is what Robert Henri meant when he said:
" The goal is not making art. It is living a life.
   Those who live their lives will leave the stuff that is really art.
   Art is a result.
   It is a trace of those who have lived their lives."
