Quote 533 Pierre-Auguste Renoir

"The pain passes but the beauty remains."
...Pierre-Auguste Renoir

I was on an errand today and had the radio on.    I learned that the artist Renoir developed rheumatoid artritits.  He painted with a brush strapped to his paralyzed fingers.   

This year my goal is to photograph beauty whenever I see it.

  1. That is a great goal...it is wonderful to see beauty in the ordinary as well as the extraordinary! I think you will see it. I did not know that Renoir had arthritis but it is the intense human desire to create beauty that can diminish the pain of being human. And here on this media we get to share beauty.
