Everything is gestation and then birthing.

Sometimes when we don’t quite understand what the world is trying to tell us, or we are not quite sure where a painting is taking us, it helps to remember that…

“Everything is gestation and then birthing. 
To let each impression and each embryo 
of a feeling come to completion, 
entirely in itself, 
in the dark, 
in the unsayable, 
the unconscious, 
beyond the reach of one’s 
own understanding, 
and with deep humility 
and patience to wait 
for the hour when a new 
clarity is born: this alone is 
what it means to live 
as an artist: in 
understanding as in 
creating.”
 
~Rainer Maria Rilke
