A good painter has two main objects to paint, man and the intention of his soul. The former is easy, the latter hard as he has to represent it by the attitude and movement of the limbs.
Leonardo da Vinci
Art is everywhere, except it has to pass through a creative mind.
All art is but imitation of nature.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Painting is so poetic, while sculpture is more logical and scientific and makes you worry about gravity.
What I give form to in daylight is only one per cent of what I have seen in darkness.
M.C. Escher Art must be an expression of love or it is nothing.
Great art picks up where nature ends.
If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.

An interesting look at arts marketing....
“... the circus is coming to town and you paint a sign saying 'Circus Coming to the Fairground Saturday', that's advertising.
If you put the sign on the back of an elephant and walk it into town, that's promotion.
If the elephant walks through the mayor's flower bed, that is publicity.
And if you get the mayor to laugh about it, that's public relations.
If the town's citizens go to the circus, you show them the many entertainment booths, explain how much fun they'll have spending money at the booths, answer their questions and ultimately, they spend a lot at the circus, that's sales.”
