Sister Wendy

I like Sister Wendy Beckett. She's been a nun forever. She said she lives in the sunshine of God's presence. She spends lots of time in prayer and in contemplation. She uses art to dig into the truth of how she feels about something, while knowing a lot of the history of the artist.

She says, art helps us live more alert, in the moment. Art can give great pleasure as well as great pain. Looking at art can expand our perspective. Encounters with the masters. One of her favorite sacred artists is Cezanne.

I found this interview on You Tube. There are 6 parts.
