I’ve been re-reading Robert Henri’s classic book, “The Art Spirit.” My heart skipped when I read this passage:

The real study of an art student is more a development of that sensitive natures and appreciative imagination with which he was so fully endowed when a child, and which, unfortunately in almost all cases, the contact with the grown-ups shames out of him before he has passed into what is understood as real life.

Have a wonderful day, everyone!
