Very true a picture is a representation between what we think and what we interpret and how we define

Pictures can carry any imagination we wish. All that's required is self-recognition and a tradition upon which to build a destiny...

if your thought generates the picture, then it is enough which is similar to poetry..art is never to be about popularity - that is why all things should express the Almighty - the true picture maker - or have you never enjoyed a sunset?

The real quote, from :

Table Talk (1821-1834)

Specimens of the Table Talk of S.T. Coleridge (1835) by Henry N. Coleridge The date that follows each quote refers to when the remark was made. (Henry Nelson Coleridge (25 October 1798 – 26 January 1843) was an editor of the works of his uncle Samuel Taylor Coleridge.)

"Painting is the intermediate somewhat between a thought and a thing."
30 August 1827

I actually believe a word is a better middle point between a thought and a thing… but I guess both written and spoken words and pictures are signifiers of reality...

A photo is a moment of time captured without context. That moment could be one persons thought or a spark for another person's imagination.

A picture can say a thousand words, some just have bigger vocabularies than others.

As a visual artist, this statement; "Painting is the intermediate somewhat between a thought and a thing."; is very accurate and hits the proverbial nail upon it's head.

Pictures might be a representation that leave some marks in our mind. Remembrances in the past and it is more possible for a long time.
