Art is not a thing, it’s a way.

I saw this quote scrawled on a bench this weekend, and I meditated on it as I went about my day. So much emphasis is placed on the final product – the thing we label “Art”, however the process is just as important. Perhaps more so. Art is a process for expression and communication. If the results are not satisfactory, more attention must be payed to the process. Just a thought…

The bench provided no attribution for this gem, however Google revealed it’s author to be Elbert Hubbard, an American writer, artist, philosopher and traveling soap salesman.
