“Artists are prophets. We speak of a world yet to come. We bring the far things near. We create the new earth with our love, our faith and our vision. Our vision will be clearer if we do not entangle ourselves with the problems of this world. To be powerfully prophetic, we cannot give a voice to the day we live in. We must be deeply acquainted even intimate with the One who has already created our future home. When we are in that creative spirit painting, we find the vision of this future world and we make it seen, we make it known. Before anything is ever done on this earth, it was first sung, written, or painted.” ~Art and words by Elli Milan

  1. Thank you so much for this. I have just posted a link on my personal Facebook page, which acknowledges you of course. And I also love the Aldous Huxley quote you shared about going lightly. Your work and sharing are exemplars of that 🙂
    Blessings to you today and all the days { hug }
