The men resent a woman getting any honour in what they consider is essentially their field. Men painters mostly despise women painters. So I have decided to stop squirming, to throw any honour in with Canada and women.
Quotation of Emily Carr
The spirit must be felt so intensely that it has power to call others in passing, for it must pass, not stop in the pictures.
Quotation of Emily Carr
There are no words, no paints to express all this, only a beautiful dumbness in the soul, life speaking to life.
