Leonardo da Vinci
Painting is a blind man's profession. He paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen.
Painting is a faith, and it imposes the duty to disregard public opinion.
Vincent Van Gogh
For me, painting is a way to forget life. It is a cry in the night, a strangled laugh.
Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.
Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is.
Painting is the most magical of mediums. The transcendence is truly amazing to me every time I go to a museum and I see how somebody figured another way to rub colored dirt on a flat surface and make space where there is no space or make you think of a life experience.
