In brief the Four Noble Truths are:
* All life is suffering * Suffering is caused by desire * There is and end to desire and thus an end to suffering
* The End of desire may be reached by following the Eightfold Path This follows the commonly expressed thoughts about art:
* To be an artist you must suffer * You suffer to fulfill your desire to create art * The suffering will end when you learn to be agood artist * The Path to being a good artist is beyond technique, it is understanding and merging with your media
