before we knew better
Lincoln is a master artist. He's really, truly innovative and free. No one has told him about the rules yet. He doesn't know about what the world considers beautiful or ugly. He's not bothered when the paint spills off the page or when a color bleeds into another. He's just purely caught up in the wonder of his creations.
Remember those days before we knew better? Maybe getting back to this is the highest form of praise. I wonder if this isn't a picture of God at the moment of creation, playing with colors and textures and light, caught up in the wonder of the things he loves.
