  • Words for Thought...

    “If you hear a voice within you saying, 'You are not a painter,' then, by all means, paint, and that voice will be silenced.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh

    “The works must be conceived with fire in the soul but executed with clinical coolness.” – Joan Miro

    “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” ~ Edgar Degas

    “If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.” ~ Edward Hopper

    “A really good picture looks as if it’s happened at once. It’s an immediate image. For my own work, when a picture looks labored and overworked… I usually throw these out, though I think very often it takes ten of those over-labored efforts to produce one really beautiful wrist motion that is synchronized with your head and heart, and you have it, and therefore it looks as if it were born in a minute” ~ Helen Frankenthaler
