The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place. From the sky, the earth
a scrap of paper, a passing shape or from a spider's web. ~Pablo Picasso
“To my mind, a picture should be something pleasant, cheerful, and pretty, yes pretty!
There are too many unpleasant things in life as it is without creating still more of them.” ~Pierre-Auguste Renoir
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way
things I had no words for. ~Georgia O'Keefe
The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection. ~Micheangelo
Not everybody trusts paintings but people believe photographs. ~Ansel Adams
The beginning is the most important part of the work. ~Plato
If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced. ~Van Gogh
Thank you to all the artists and patrons that helped make our 10 years as a gallery WONDERFUL!
We have had a great time, learned a lot
and met so many very talented artists.
