As Close As The Window On Your Left

“Your best work may be closer than you think.  You don’t need to go all the way to Africa or Italy to find  subject matter worthy of painting.  Your own backyard or neighborhood may be fertile ground for superior paintings.  Mary Cassatt spent her career painting friends and family, and almost all of Vermeer’s paintings were done in one corner of his studio with the light coming from the window at the left.”

–  Mary Whyte, p. 143.
