“Creativity arises from our ability to see things from many different angles.”
— Keri Smith, How to Be an Explorer of the World: Portable Life Museum

“The same subject seen from a different angle gives a subject for study of the highest interest and so varied that I think I could be occupied for months without changing my place, simply bending more to the right or left.”
— Paul Cezanne

Surprisingly, I am not yet tired of painting my moon snail shell.  In fact, I am growing quite fond of it!
