Your Say

In fairness to ancient artists and archivists, I seem to have nothing but contempt for ANY (like THIS one) PSTD "triggers" to "recovered memory" of old teenage/post adolescence girlfriend mistakes I've made. (but certainly learned from)

I am not an artist; how does an artist capture the ephemeral display of an emotion in the subject? The artist sees the subject and thinks 'that is what I want to record' but that sight flashes away like a butterfly hovering over spring flowers.

How is that moment captured and re-captured before it is put down on a medium?
