Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression. The chasm is never completely bridged. We all have the conviction, perhaps illusory, that we have much more to say than appears on the paper.

With the Wind
 Edward Robert Hughes (English, 1851–1914)
Coloured chalks on grey paper.
Hughes worked mainly in watercolor and gouache, painting symbolist subjects and obscure literary themes, often Italian in origin. He is also well known for his slightly idealized portraits of women, executed in red chalk. His works display the meticulous observation of nature and minute technique associated with the Pre-Raphaelite movement.
