Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.
~Henry Ward Beecher
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.
Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
The essence of all art is to have pleasure in giving pleasure.
The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude.
Treat a work of art like a prince. Let it speak to you first.
True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist.
