Painting
Kathleen Brennan
A painting is an image with a body and a contained spirit, with a human imprint and a human idea. A
painting’s power needs to come from the inside out, not from the outside in; its structure being defined
by the weight of the artists’ intention. The act of painting is the embodiment of human action and
feeling and thought. The artist is the embodiment of this action in thought, in a moment of feeling, but
its completeness relies on the viewer’s empathetic response to its feeling-toned content.
