Another thought, from seeing the sunrise over the Caribbean ocean: nature is more beautiful than anything we could create.  But it’s also dangerous.  A painting of a storm at sea is nothing compared to the actual storm, but at least you’re not going to drown.  The painting of the cave-bear won’t eat you, and that’s part of what makes it wonderful, and part of what makes it a path away from the world, away from life. Art is an effort to make beauty safe.
