"In some ways painters have been more important in my life than writers. Painters teach you how to see—a faculty that usually isn't highly developed in poets. Whether you take a walk in the woods with a painter, or go to a museum with one, through them you notice shapes, colors, harmonies, relationships that enhance your own seeing."

— Carolyn Kizer, from a Spring 2000 interview in The Paris Review
