Drawing with Light

"Impressionists were actually realists as they believed the truth came from light.  We only see things because of light, therefore we ought to paint in white and/or the colours of the rainbow, no black.  They said there was no fixed reality, only fleeting moments (Monet), like a reflection in a pond, it is all transient"   Unknown.

As an artist who usually uses photography at some point of my creative process, I love this quote as it reminds me of the definition of photography - drawing with light.  On sunny days like these it is easy to acknowledge and appreciate fleeting moments as the light is more obvious; dancing between shadow and light.  There seems to be a direct link between the energy of light and the creative flow. As an artist, I see it as an honour and responsibility to acknowledge 'the fleeting'.
