Friday Inspiration: Gerhard Richter

Friday Inspiration: Gerhard Ritcher on Katie Crafts;

 “Art is the highest form of hope.” ~Gerhard Richter

[source: Text for catalogue of documenta 7, Kassel, 1982]

My nomination came from the lovely Alison (thank you!) over at Texas Farmer’s Daughter. I’m in love with her blog (and her Etsy shop!) so be sure to check both of them out!
