CONFESSIONS FROM HORN ISLAND
Walter Anderson, artist
"I have very good training (as an artist),you know. I’ve studied and profited from all of art history. […minds spoke to him across the ages with immediate urgency. He sought communion with them through his drawings.] I think few people are better qualified to paint the appearance of things than I. Yet, that is not really what I want. The heart is the thing that counts. The mingling of my heart with the heart of the wild bird: to become one with the thing I see.”
"Dogs, cats, birds are holes in heaven through which man may pass."
