Inspire Me Thursday: Albert Einstein

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

This week’s topic over at Inspire Me Thursday is Albert Einstein.

This topic fits in perfectly with my ‘Science in Art’ series of works.  I decided to paint a space-inspired watercolour, and give it a title based on a quote by Albert Einstein.  This is what I came up with:

Beautiful Mysterious:

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed” – Albert Einstein

I had so much fun with this topic that I had to do a few more paintings with the same theme:

Persistent Illusion:

“People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion” – Albert Einstein

Imagination Encircling:

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein

If you would like to purchase one of these paintings, or see some of my other work, please check out my gallery.
