President's Day

Art is not a treasure in the past or an importation from another land,
but part of the present life of all living and creating peoples.
-Franklin D. Roosevelt

Vintage photo on an antique postcard.  No notation of the location.

Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.
-Franklin D. Roosevelt

I often look for just the right words for a collage or art piece.  I found these two comments about art by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.  Somehow they seem appropriate on this Presidents' Day.  The photo - I was just struck by the beauty of the arches, the contrast of light and dark, and the mystery of the door at the end.  Maybe this card and one of these quotations will end up on one of my collages.
