Anyway, as I was searching for a quote for the bottom of my blog a few weeks ago, I stumbled across a lot of other great quotes. I think you can substitute almost any creative endeavor for 'painting' and they still ring true.
Some are hilarious and some touchingly true--I thought I'd share.
That stroke you are about to make on a painting is as much you as the next word you utter or the next breath you take. (Harley Brown)
Painting, n. the art of protecting flat surfaces from the weather and exposing them to the critic. (Ambrose Bierce)
Painting is a source of endless pleasure, but also of great anguish. (Balthus)
I paint because I love to cut mats. (Arthur Alexander)
“The world today doesn't make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?” (Picasso)

“I've been doing a lot of abstract painting lately, extremely abstract. No brush, no paint, no canvas, I just think about it.” (Stephen Wright)
Are you getting back into the swing of things after the holidays? Chris' leave starts on Thursday so we're just gearing up for our holiday vacation! I think we might be heading to Maui for a little getaway after the New Year. :)
