IT'S ALL ABOUT PAINTING
"NIGHT MUSIC" by Parker Kaufman
Famous quotes about painting.
"A good painting to me, has always been like a friend. It keeps me company, comforts, and inspires."
"Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do."
"Painting is a blind man's profession. He paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he sees."
"Painting is a faith,and it imposes the duty to disregard public opinion."
---Vincent van Gogh
"When I judge art, I take my painting and put it next to a God made object like a tree or flower. If it clashes, it is not art."
"I have no fear of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own."
"Good painting is the kind that looks like sculpture."
"No one is an artist unless he carries his picture in his head before painting it, and is sure of his method and composition."
"Painting is an illusion, a piece of magic, so what you see is not what you see."
"I dream a lot. I do more painting when I am not painting. It's in the subconscious."
"I was not out to paint beautiful pictures, even painting good pictures was not important to me. I wanted only to help the truth burst forth."
