  • "The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration."
    Frida Kahlo
  • "An empty canvas is a living wonder.. far lovelier than certain pictures."
    Wassily Kandinsky
  • "To me, it's not work. When I draw and I write, I find it relaxing. It's not like 9-to-5, where a man goes to a job and he isn't really interested in the job. Luckily, I get paid for doing what I'd do for nothing."
    Bob Kane

    Paul Klee
  • "Judo has helped me to understand that pictorial space is above all the product of spiritual exercises. Judo is in fact the discovery by the human body of a spiritual space."

  • "I'm a painter who paints day in day out, from morning till evening - figure pictures and landscapes, more rarely portraits."
    Gustav Klimt
  • "The final test of a painting, theirs, mine, any other, is: does the painter's emotions come across?."
    Franz Kline
  • "Art to me is a humanitarian act and I believe that there is a responsibility that art should somehow be able to effect mankind, to make the word a better place."

  • "It would start with a color, a form, and it begins dictating to me what's needed in terms of color as well as form."
    Lee Krasner
  • "I think there are lots of ways to make good work. You can throw big bucks at a project and make what some would call crap, or you can work very modestly with eloquently moving results."
