Through all the world there goes one long cry from the heart of the artist: Give me leave to do my utmost.

                                                                                                                                          Isak Dineson

 I paint my own reality. 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

Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.

                                                                                                                          Andre Gide


  Art is a kind of innate drive that seizes a human being and makes him its instrument. To perform this difficult office it is sometimes necessary for him to sacrifice happiness and everything that makes life worth living for the ordinary human being.                                                                                                 Carl Jung

 I am risking my life for my work, and half my reason has gone. 

                                                                                                        Vincent van Gogh

You’re confusing product with process. Most people, when they criticize, whether they like it or hate it, they’re talking about product. That’s not art, that’s the result of art. Art, to whatever degree we can get a handle on (I’m not sure that we really can) is a process. It begins in the heart and the mind with the eyes and hands.

                                                                        Jeff Melvoin, Northern Exposure, Fish Story, 1994

I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.

                                                                                                                              Orson Welles

To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.

Joseph Chilton Pearce  

I like working. My friends get pissed off. I cancel dinner dates and all that kind of stuff because I like being in my studio.                        Jenny Saville


"My artwork is never bad,
There’s no right or wrong way,
My effort makes me feel glad,
I would draw anything,
an ocean or a bay.
Bright colors, lines are bold;
artwork is like gold." 
From a student –
Cedar Creek Elementary

  2. Hey thank you for your comment.  Let me know how you get on with oils.  Some people have problems with oils in terms of colour mixing, but hey its what your comfortable with.
    you take care and keep on what your doing

  3. This Art ring is working out quite well, but is there an easy way to paste your list onto my space so I don\’t have to copy each one individually? It would be easier to keep it up-to-date if there was a quick way to do this?

  4. Dear Sarah,  The Painting Studio has been nominated for Best Poetry at Spaces  Hall Of Fame.  Details are at the Studio.  As ever be well.  Stephen

  5. Dear Sarah,  On Art.  Space is only as deep as one makes it.  Fine Art inspires, and makes the little neck hairs go all in tingles as the works and words travel through the eye into the mind and find the spirit that has ever been and ever shall be.  There the works and words inspire others to go on and do good-great works,  in order to inspire others.
    We shall see and as ever be well.  Stephen
