In the throes of life, an artist happens to be picturing something in their mind, and wishes to translate that to paper. It may have arrived ‘through the ceiling’ as it was; or in the other words it just popped into their mind. It could come from observation of the real world; a landscape, a person; a thing. But like a camera the artist has a snap shot in their mind of something they want to put onto canvas or in a novel.
Never seen that before. Look at this. Just awe-inspiring. And so unusual. Can’t believe it. Is it true? I was touched through a Salvador Dali painting.– Pete’s quotes
