Today is the feast of
St. James McNeill Whistler.

“Nature contains the elements of color and form of all pictures– as the keyboard contains the notes of all music– but the artist is born to pick, and choose, and group with science, these elements, that the result may be beautiful–  as the musician gathers his notes, and forms his chords, until he brings forth from chaos, glorious harmony.”

— Whistler, “The Ten O’Clock
