Sometimes I wake in the morning with art on my mind.... a great project to create or a place to travel to for a photo... an angle or background for a portrait or a new window display for work. It's as if it comes to me in a dream.. I guess my mind never rests far from art.
A few of my favorite artist quotes:
"Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life." ~ Pablo Picasso
"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see." ~ Edgar Degas
"An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision." ~ James McNeill Whistler
"One must from time to time attempt things that are beyond one's capacity."
~ Auguste Renoir .... and that is why, once in a while, I try to paint.. eljayrae
