Leonardo da Vinci Once Said…

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was born on April 14, 1452 and died on May 2, 1519. Leonardo was an inventor and artist that specialized in drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, paleontology, and cartography.

Learning is the only thing the mind never exhausts, never fears, and never regrets. – Leonardo da Vinci

As one is growing up there are many stages of maturity we encounter. These of course are affected by environment and circumstance and for me I do remember loving to learn and still love learning new things. I started reading before I went to school and haven’t stopped reading. As for writing, I started pretty early on with that as well to express myself with poetry. I have found over the years that when I write about what I know and try to explain or make others understand these things it has been part of my calling as a writer.

The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding. Leonardo da Vinci

I was exposed to several artists in history and by my Father and my aunt Jeanne who are both artists… and of course in school. When it came time for me to figure out what I like I found that I have an appreciation for many art forms and styles and I love to experiment. Da Vinci said the noblest pleasure is joy of understanding I think what he was talking about is when he figured out how to do something or when he created something and in that comes joy.

A beautiful body perishes, but a work of art dies not. – Leonardo da Vinci

The way that we honor our past artists is by learning from them and by buying their works and making our own. Many artists have learned by learning to do copy-art which is as it sounds a copy of the original. What makes copy-art special is when the new artist puts their own twist on it. I’m definitely a supporter of the preservation of art in all of its forms.

The artist sees what others only catch a glimpse of. – Leonardo da Vinci

That is how to tell who has an eye for art is that they’ll show you in their photographs, drawings, paintings, sculptures or however they do it. They will show you art that will make you stare in awe at it. A glimpse is what the artists catches or it’s that idea in the brain and then we put it out there for everyone to see.

The drawing on the left is mine and the drawing on the right is Leonardo da Vinci. I’m pretty sure this is the same picture I used to draw this for my college drawing class assignment. I need to start doing more drawing but I’ve been concentrating on this my writing which is an art-form in and of itself. I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoy writing them and hoping to help you learn a bit about who I am and what I believe in. Thanks for reading.
